Baseball: America’s national pastime

Baseball is one of the most popular sport in America, A lot of Americans say there is no other sport like baseball. Baseball is a team game that was invented in the United States in 1992. Baseball was also included as a discipline in the Olympics but it was removed in 2008. These are the main rules to follow in baseball. Each team has nine playersThe pitcher throws the ball towards the catcher, located behind home plate, where there is also the batter (of the attacking team), who tries to hit it “on bat” with the bat, in order to advance counterclockwise on a series of four bases, which are located at the corners of the pitch forming a diamond called diamond. Finally you have to go back to the starting point (home plate), thus scoring a point for your team.  The defending team, composed not only of the pitcher (in attack), but of other players placed in different points of the field, will try to eliminate the batter by making the ball reach a base before the batter himself, or simply by grabbing the ball on the fly.

One thing that is unique to baseball, at least among the big 4 American sports, is it has no time constraints. Each team is allotted 27 outs. This means that it is never physically or mathematically impossible for a losing team to come back and win the game.

Everyone can play baseball. This sport does not have particular physical demands. You only need to work hard and focus on honing your talent or skill
