Did you know that baseball is the national game of America?

This bat and        ball        game is played by eighteen          people         . Nine people are on a side. The positions are pitcher, catcher,         first         base, second base, third        base       , shortstop, right-field, left-field, and center-field. The first six positions are part of the infield. The last three are part of the            outfield           .

The diamond or         field         where the game is played is a square plot of ground. Its sides are ninety feet long. At each corner are bases called first, second, third and home plate. A game consists of nine innings. In each          inning         , both teams take turns hitting the ball. They try to         score         runs. The players take turns batting. They use baseball        bats        that are usually made of ash. The goal is to reach bases without being tagged out by the other        team       .

The pitcher attempts to         pitch         the ball over the home plate to the catcher. The batter tries to       hit       it. If the          batter          hits the ball and it is caught by the other team, or if it reaches the base the batter is headed for before he gets         there        , he is "out." Otherwise he is "safe". A safe batter will try to make the next base. If he rounds all four bases without getting       out      , he scores a       run       for his team.

When a          player          rounds all the bases without being forced to stop he makes a "home run." A hit which gains him a single base only is called a "base hit." Similarly if he reaches          second          base it is a "two-bagger" or double. Reaching third base is called a "three-bagger" or          triple         .

If the player fails to hit the ball, it can either be ruled a ball or a strike. A          strike          means the ball was thrown in the zone needed for the batter to hit it, but was simply missed. A ball means the ball was thrown in an        area        outside the possibility for being       hit      . Four         balls         result in the player being "walked", whereas three strikes result in an out.

After three players on a team are called out, the other team gets to come up to       bat      . At the end of nine           innings          , the team with the most runs wins.
