The rules of the game is very difficult to understand if you have never played before.But their pretty simple after you play. In every game, you have 4 infielders, 3 outfielders, a pitcher, and a catcher. Depending on weather your team is home or away is when you bat and when you are in the field. Any ball hit outside of the baseline is considered a foul ball. The strike zone is anywhere over the plate ranging from the batters knee and their chest. Anything outside, inside, higher, or lower than that is a ball. The count is how many balls and strikes you have on the batter. As a batter, you want to get ahead of the count, which means you want more balls than strikes. As a pitcher, you want more strikes on the batter. If the batter gets 3 strikes, they're out. If they get 4 balls, they get a walk, which means you get a free base.
