Going from home to fist base is called a single, going from home to the second base is called a double and making it to the third base without stopping is a triple. A homerun is making it safely around all the bases back to home without stopping. The players There are nine players per team. They are, namely, the pitcher, the catcher, the first baseman, the second baseman, the third baseman, the short stop, the left fielder, the center fielder, and the right fielder. Just like in other games, it is very important that you familiarize yourself first with the different terms that are used to refer to the plays and moves in baseball. If you go the field without any knowledge even about the fundamental baseball lingo, then you will barely have an idea of what your fellow players are talking about. The runner tags up or waits until the ball is caught, and runs home before the outfielder can throw the ball to home. Sacrifice bunt The other key move is the sacrifice bunt. The object is to move a runner waiting in his present base (usually at first base, most favorably at third) into a scoring position (going to the next base or a home run). Batters play by attempting and succeeding to hit the ball and then advancing to the bases without being hit by the ball, which could be caught by the infielders or pitchers. The pitching team s goal is to catch the hit ball and try to arrest batters or runners who are making their way to go to bases (there are four of them, including the home base, the last destination). When your thighs are parallel to the ground, you have to stand back up. Repeat this step about three to six times. Trunk Rotations With your feet apart and your hand reaching out to your sides, turn your upper body to the right and then to the left. Do this again three to six times. Sprints Short sprints, which are done like players do in an actual game, help improve blood circulation in the muscles and increase body temperature. As a player, you have to choose the right kind of bat that will be easy for you to swing. When you are assigned as the batter, you will need a batting helmet that will as serve as your head s protection. The pitcher can execute a very fast throw that can cause injury on your head and the helmet can prevent any accidental hits.
