Baseball and Math. Angel Bravo Period.2. Baseball.
Baseball is played between two teams of nine players, under the authority of one or more officials, called umpires. There are four bases. First, second and third bases are cushions, and the fourth base (home plate) is made of rubber. they form a square with sides of 90 ft called a diamond. The playing field is divided into three main sections:
The infield, containing the four bases, is for defensive purposes and is within the grass line
The outfield is the grassed area beyond the grass line between the foul lines, and bounded by a wall or fence.
Foul territory is the area outside the foul lines.
The pitcher's mound is located in the center of the infield. The pitcher must have one foot on the rubber at the start of every pitch to a batter, but the pitcher can only leave the mound area once the ball is released.
At the college/professional level, baseball is played in nine innings in which each team gets one turn to bat and try to score runs. High school baseball plays seven innings. An inning is broken up into two halves in which the away team bats in the first half, and the home team bats in the bottom second half. The winner is the team with the most runs after nine innings. If the home team is ahead after the top of the ninth, the game does not continue into the bottom half. In the case of a tie, extra innings are played until one team takes the lead at the end of an inning.
20 hits ÷ 60 at-bats = .300this means he hits 30 percent of the time. It's the same as 30 out of 100, or 30/100. If you reduce the fraction, you get 3/10. That means Ramirez hits in 3 out of every 10 at-bats.
40 hits ÷ 200 at-bats = .200 A .200 average is 20% or 2 hits out of every 10 at-bats.
