A quick history of Baseball
The start of the sport would be sometime around the beginning of the 19th century, being played in different variations mainly around the New York area. Founded in 1845, The New York Knickerbockers was the first team to play somewhat of a modern-day version of Baseball, with the sport changing rules and evolving in the following years. Two years later, together with 15 other teams, the New York area formed the National Association of Base Ball Players had been formed, the first league of the sport.
The sport was an amateur one for many years until one team established themselves as professionals, and many soon followed. This means that the players of these teams played baseball as their jobs because up until then, most of them had other jobs at the same time. Also, there had been all sorts of leagues trying to establish themselves over time, but now there is only the national one, divided into the Minor League and Major League, with the latter being the one everyone is watching.
How to play Baseball
The two teams are each comprised out of nine players, with the player taking turns in both attack and defense, batting, running, and fielding. All the nine players take the position of the batter, as well as the other positions, constantly changing, so you have to be an all-around player. There is the hitter, who has to throw the ball, being on the offense, and the pitcher, who has to hit it, on the defense.
The game takes place during nine innings, each divided into two halves, the top, and bottom. Batters have to hit the ball thrown at them, and then the other players in their team need to run the four bases before they reach the home base, where there’s a plate. If a batter hits the ball on the outfield, he can make the run of all four with no competition, making it a home run.
A team loses its turn at the bat after three outs, which happens when three of their batters have given out. The team with the most runs at the end of the nine innings becomes the winner, simple as that.
It is a game where it is important to have the physical ability, somewhat lucky, but strategies are very important, which is why you can see players making hand signs that show the plays that the team will make at that moment.
Now that you’ve understood the basic rules of baseball, we’re sure that playing the games will not be as difficult as you might have imagined at first, because you were not really aware of the sport and how it works.
Icons of Baseball
We first have to talk about Babe Ruth, who, during one of his matches, called where he would shoot his ball exactly, and it hit exactly in that spot, making one of the most iconic moments in the sport, and over the years he reached legend status. Another one would be Bobby Thomson, whose home run turned the tides of the match and made his team National Champions, in what was called the ‘Shot Heard ‘Round the World’.
Willie Mays of the New York Giants is known for having made an incredible catch at the beginning of the game, making sure that the opposing team cannot get an early lead, and they ultimately won against them. Of course, sometimes you get cemented in the history of a sport for a mistake you’ve done, such as was the case with Bill Buckner, who let a rolling ball go through his legs.
Also, some of the most iconic teams we can think of from the top of our hat include the New York Yankees, the New York Mets, the LA Dodgers, Boston Red Sox, or the Chicago Cubs.
