Rules and gameplay of baseball

A game is played between two teams with each composed of nine players who then take turns playing offense, batting or hitting and defense, fielding or pitching. A pair of turns in which one at bat and other in the field. There are nine innings in a single game. One team customarily visiting team bats in the first half, of every inning, the other team customarily the home team bats in the second half, of every inning. The goal of a game is to score more runs than the other team. The players on the team at bat attempt to score runs by completing a tour of the four bases set at the corners of the square - shaped baseball diamond. A player bats at home plate and must proceed anticlockwise to first base, second base, third base, and then back home in order to score a run. The team in the field attempts both to prevent scoring runs from scoring and to record outs, which remove opposing players from action until their turn in their batting order comes up again. The dimensions given are for professional - style games, the children often play on smaller fields. U may try and have fun:)
