Singh Tribhuvan Jogendra and Dr. Sandeep BhallaAbstract:
Baseball is a game in which there are batting and pitching. Two teams can play this game. It is a field game that is played with bats and a ball between two teams. In this sport, the player should hit the ball that throws the pitcher and then to run the field in the clockwise, i.e., to run through the four bases that are marked on the field. The goal of baseball is to prevent a player from the rival team from reaching the base, i.e., hitting the ball. The two teams each have nine players. One team take the offensive, that is the batting and running, while the other team takes the defensive position that is pitching- throwing the ball and defending. The pitch is in the shape of a diamond with four ‘bases’ – first, second, third and fourth base. Four players from the offensive team are present on the pitch at one base each. The player in the batting position hits the pitched ball and runs to the second base while the players at the other bases also move to the next base in an anti-clockwise direction to make runs. The other team tries to get the players out. Once three of the offensive players get ‘out’ the other team comes in to bat. A match has nine innings, each of which is one turn of batting and one with the ball for each team. The aim of the offensive team to make as many runs as possible without getting out. The defensive team tries to get as many players from the offensive as possible while defending the pitch.Pages: 219-222 | 486 Views 109 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
