The rules of baseball

THE RULES OF BASEBALL

  • Each game is played for 9 innings. An inning ends when both teams bat and make 3 outs.

  • The game is mainly a contest between the pitcher and the batter. Nothing else happens until the ball enters the field of play.

  • The team that scores the most runs after 9 innings is the winner. If there is a tie, the game goes into extra innings.


Pitcher vs batter

PITCHER vs. BATTER

  • This is the most important part of the game. Everything else that happens is based on this moment…

  • The outcome of an at-bat depends on the count:

    • 3 Strikes: OUT: the batter is out

    • 4 Balls: WALK: the batter goes to first base


Game situations

  • The base runner is forced out before arriving at the next base.

  • The base runner is touched out while out base.
