Rules and regulation in baseball
Baseball is played by two teams of nine players each. The teams take turns batting and fielding.
The batting team is called the offensive team and the fielding team is called the defensive team. One who bowls the ball is known as the pitcher. The pitcher pitches the ball to the catcher.
A home plate is a plate where a batter stands. The batter tries to hit the ball that is pitched by the pitcher. The batter’s main objective is to hit the ball and get as many rounds before the ball reaches the catcher.
The team that scores more runs will be declared the winner. A run is scored when the batter and the runner reach the same position where he or she started batting.
Homerun is declared if the batter completes running a circle. The runner can also take stealing a base and therefore can advance further based on the way of running. The defensive team is to get batters and base runners out by touching the glove to the batter with having a ball in his or her hand.
If the defensive team has made 3 outs, then the teams exchange their position such that the defensive team will come for batting now and the offensive team will start bowling. A full game consists of 9 innings in total. A game takes time between 45 minutes and 90 minutes.
Baseball rules and regulations
- Baseball is played by 2 teams. Each team has 9 players.
- The defensive team is made up of a pitcher, catcher, first and second baseman, shortstop, third baseman, and 3 outfielders.
- If the game has level scores, then an extra-inning is added to determine the winner.
- Substitutes are allowed. One of the important rules is that the batting order cannot be changed once it is released.
- A batter gets 3 strikes to get out. A strike is imposed if the batter misses the ball. The ball that is being left is given strike only if the ball is under the strike zone.
- They can then run to as many bases as they wish before being tagged out. Each base must be touched with some part of the batter’s body when running past.
- When on base, the battery can run to the next base at any point.
- Players can be dismissed by either a ‘strike out’ (referring to a batsman missing the ball three times), ‘force out’ (when a player fails to make the base before the defensive player), ‘fly out’ (when the ball is hit in the air and caught without it bouncing), and ‘tag outs’ (where a defensive player with the ball tags the batsman with the ball all whilst they are running).
The beauty of baseball is when you cross the white lines. Your worldly troubles are forgotten, and the game, you got only focus. Your goal is to defeat your opponent. You, leave it all on the field. Let the chips fall where they may. You can hold your head up, give your best effort.
