Information about baseball:
General information: Baseball is an American team sport which has 2 teams, each with 9 players. Each team takes a turn in defence and offence. The offence is the batting team and is trying to score runs whilst the team in defence is spread across the field.
Field: The baseball field consists of fair and foul territory and the latter area is most important. The bases are situated in each corner of the infield. The infield is 27.42 m long on each side and is square-shaped. Each corner represents a base: 1st, 2nd, 3rd and the home plate. The outfield is the area within the extended sidelines of the 1st and 3rd base. The distance from the rear edge of the home plate to the centre field should be 121.87 m or more.
Rules: An offence player can only run if they have hit a ball that was thrown by the pitcher into the field. The player must reach a base before the opposing team catches the ball and gets the player “out”. If the player safely reaches a base, the next player takes their position on the home plate and takes their turn at hitting the ball. If the running player gets past all three bases in one run and gets back to the home plate, they have completed a “home run”. The inning ends when each team has played in offence once. The team that gets the most runs in 9 innings is the winner.
Runs: Runs are given when a player gets to a base and are awarded to the offensive team. Each player who runs around the 1st, 2nd, 3rd bases and then to the home plate scores a run. There are no draws in baseball. If both teams have the same number of runs, the game continues until one team gets more runs in an inning than the other.
