Everything There's To Know About The Field

Field of Dreams ♥

Parts OF Field

The part of the field closest to the bases is called the infield, and the grassy farther reaches is called the outfield.The bases are 90 feet apart on the diamond, closer in children's leagues and softball. Other fields are variable, and the outfield fences or the amount of “foul territory” - the amount of ground that borders the field between the long white lines that connect first base to home plate and third base to home plate – varies from field to field.

The Game

There are nine innings in professional baseball games (sometimes fewer in lower levels), and each inning is divided in half to the top of the inning (when the visiting team hits and the home team plays defense) and the bottom of the inning (when the home team hits and the visiting team plays defense). Each team gets three outs in each half of the innings. Each team has nine players in its batting order, and they must stick to that order throughout the game (players may substitute in for other players). A play begins with a batter waiting to hit a pitch from the pitcher. If the batter hits the ball into the field of play, the batter runs to first base and can run to as many bases as he or she deems fit without getting "out."

Positions:

Positions:



  • Defense:There's a pitcher in the middle of the mound who initiates the action by throwing the ball toward home plate. The catcher catches the ball if it's not hit. The infielders are the first baseman, second baseman, shortstop (between second and third base) and the third baseman. There are three outfielders: The left fielder, center fielder and right fielder.


  • Offense: batter gets three strikes (a swing and a miss or a ball over the plate in what's deemed the “strike zone” by an umpire) or he or she is out. If there are four balls (a pitch that is not in the “strike zone”), the batter is automatically allowed to go to first base.When a batter begins running, he or she is then referred to as a "runner". Runners attempt to reach a base, where they are "safe" and can remain on the base until the next hitter comes up. The defensive players attempt to prevent this by putting the runners out using the ball; runners put out must leave the field.A batter gets a "hit" when he or she reaches a base without getting out, or forcing another runner to get out (and without the defense making an error). Runs are scored when a player completes a circuit of the diamond before there are three outs in the inning.If a players hits the ball over the outfield fence in fair territory (between the foul lines), it's a home run, and the batter can circle all four bases.

Requirements

A high degree of skill to play well, is required in baseball. The more athletic ability you have it would aid you to compete with other top players. Throwing & catching the baseball require significant dedication & practice. Top hitters in the game aren't fast,yet they have a tremendous high level of eye-hand coordination.

Equipment

The defense wears gloves, a leather contraption that fits on the hand, to catch the ball. A baseball is a white ball roughly three inches in diameter with red stitching. the offense uses a bat, which is made of wood in the professional ranks, and likely made of aluminum or a metal composite at amateur levels.

History of Baseball

The New York Knickerbockers were the first team to play under the modern rules of baseball. Among the rules that were introduced back then, and which characterized modern baseball are: nine-man teams; nine-inning games; bases that are 90 feet apart and elimination of the bound rule. One of the significant rules is that it prohibited soaking or plugging the runner; under older rules, a fielder could put a runner out by hitting the runner with the thrown ball, similarly to the common schoolyard game of kickball. Baseball competed for public interest with cricket and regional variants of baseball, notably town ball played in Philadelphia and the Massachusetts Game played in New England. In the 1860s, “New York” style baseball expanded into a national game, as its first governing body. Today known as the Chicago White Stockings, are the oldest team in American sports.

Legendary Baseball Players


Babe Ruth:

  • Born on February 6, 1895 in Baltimore, Maryland, a boy by the name of George Herman Ruth Jr was destined to become one of the most famous Baseball players of all time. When he was 7 years of age, his parents sent him an All-Boys Catholic School. While he was there, he grew a passion to play baseball, On February of 1914, a man named Jack Dunn was invited to go watch George Jr play. After seeing how engaged George was to his baseball skills, he was so impressed that he offered him a contract to join the Baltimore Orioles. He was referred as "Jack's newest babe" by the other players upon seeing him for the first time, Thereafter, he was know as the Babe. Due to his performance for Dunn and the Orioles, he was therefore sold to the Boston Red Sox. There, he started his career as a pitcher, and won his major league debut on July 11, 1914. He lead the Red Sox minor league team, the Providence Grays.
