Baseball is a team-based bat-and-ball’s sport played between teams of at least 9 people who each take turns pitching and fielding. The game normally progresses when a designated player on the field, known as the pitcher, throws an object to one of the players on either side of the plate who try to hit it with a bat as hard as they can. This object is thrown from some distance in front of the plate, usually up in the air, so that the player has to be quick with his throw in order to make the play. The opposing player who hit the ball typically uses a bat, but sometimes they just swing blindly at the ball.
The bases are usually loaded at first base, second base, and third base, but those aren’t always the cases. If a player hits a ball into one of the three bases, you are allowed to take a run to home plate without being forced out at first base. Normally, the runner who scores runs advances to home plate and the other team returns to their dugout without being put out. In most baseball leagues, if a team doesn’t go to the next level in their competition within a certain amount of innings, the visiting team gets to field first and is declared the winner.
Baseball is an extremely popular sport, especially during Christmas and other special occasions. With Christmas coming up often, the game is often played at local ball parks, college and high school stadiums, and even the park across the street from your house. Even professional baseball players have been known to engage in indoor baseball games, such as when Los Angeles Angels pitcher Evan Longoria went to a game with the Toronto Blue Sox last month. You might not necessarily see a lot of professional baseball players outside of the big leagues, but there are minor leaguers who play in the Little League, independent leagues, and even the United States minors. There are a lot of baseball games out there, even outside of professional baseball.
