Everything There's To Know About The Field
Field of Dreams ♥
Parts OF Field
- 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.

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
- 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.
- Jackie Robinson was born on January 31,1919 in Cairo, Georgia & lived up to October 24,1972 in Stamford, Connecticut. He was the first African-American to play Major League Baseball. He was the youngest of five children. Jackie's father left the family shortly after he was born & Jackie never heard of him again. His mother Millie raised him & his three brothers and one sister. About a year after Jackie was born, the family moved to Pasadena,California. Jackie loved to play sports ,in high school he ran track like his older brother and also played other sports like football, baseball,tennis , and bascketball. Jackie had to deal with racism all through high school,most of his teammates were white and while people would cheer him on the field, he was treated as a second class citizen off the field. He later attended UCLA college where he again starred in track,baseball,football , basketball. Jackie also attended the army. Soon after leaving the army, Robinson began to play professional baseball for the Kansas City Monarchs. The Monarchs were part of the Negro Baseball League.
