"Home run !" That is the sound of baseball and ya better get used to it. I am an expert at baseball and people all around the world play and love and I Mean LOVE baseball. And they have certain positions, equipment and rules to have a "ball" , get it.
First you need to know positions and what there for, like a batter. He has a choice to bat on left or right. And then once he hits the ball if its not foul or caught he or she runs bases. And the pitcher is the person who pitches a either curve, slow, fast, or strike ball to the batter. He also stands on a pitchers mound with a glove to hold the ball in or catch. And another is out field. In out field you are trying to catch the ball to strike out. There are lots more positions in baseball but I think these are the most simple ones.
Next is equipment and what you need to have to play. And first your gonna need a baseball. Without a baseball you cant really do anything. And your gonna need a baseball bat to hit it with. And with a catchers mit or glove whatever you want to call it you can catch the ball and call safe, strikeout, or play shortstop and pitch to base one but it all depends on your position. And also a jersey to show your team, last name and baseball number.
Last is the rules and what you need to know. You need to know where the foul area is on the field . You also need to know when to run bases if it is not in the foul zone or you do not get a strike you run and if the ball gets caught your out. And the people on bases are the people you need to be aware of when you run bases cause if they can tag you with the ball or touch the base with the ball before you get there you are out.
To sum it all up, baseball is a very sufisticativly simple fun sport with a batter,baseball and bases to run home on. And I might not be the best baseball explainer to you but you now Know more about the loved and very popularly famous sport BASEBALL!
