 This is where the catcher stands. He
  is here to catch the balls from the
  pitcher.

 He is dressed in a lot of padding and
  extra gear to make sure that if he
  gets hit with the ball he doesn’t get
  injured.

 This is also where the batter stands
  and has to cross to score there team
  a point. The more times you cross
  this plate without getting called out
  the more points you get to lean your
  team to victory.

   This is where the first baseman
    stands. He is here to try and get out
    the batter when someone throws
    him a ball.
   As a batter you have to hit the ball
    and try and make it to this base
    before the other team throws you
    out.
   If you hit a ball and first base is the
    only base you can get, you should
    always run through the bag and turn
    to your right.
   You should always watch out for the
    pick off plays. This is where the
    pitcher in the middle of pitching to
    the batter turns and throws it at first
    trying to get you out from leading off
    the bag.

   The pitcher is the most important part
    in the game. He throws the ball to the
    batter trying to strike him out or let him
    hit the ball.
   If there is a person on any base, the
    pitcher could also try and pick off the
    runner. This is called a pick off play.
   If there is a person on 3rd base and the
    pitcher throws the ball past the catcher
    the pitcher has to cover home plate
    and try and stop the runner by
    receiving the ball and tagging the
    runner out.
   The pitcher also should never catch a
    fly ball. If there is a fly ball one of the
    base members should always run an
    protect the pitcher by catching the ball
    for him.

     There is very little to know about 2nd
      base. When the ball is hit and there is
      someone on 1st running towards you all
      you have to do is step on the base an
      the runner is out. That is called a force
      out. But if there is nobody there and the
      hitter runs through 1st and is coming
      towards 2nd you have to catch the ball
      and drop a tag on the runner before he
      touches the bag.
     Other then the base running, 2nd base is
      just like 1st base. When the pitcher is on
      the mound and there is a runner on
      second, he just might turn and try and
      pick the runner off of this bag.
     If there is a runner on first an the ball is
      hit to infield, you could turn a double
      play. A double play is when you throw it
      to a base to get one person out and
      quickly turn and throw to another to get
      both runners out.

    •    3rd base is just as important as any
         other base. You don’t need to have the
         reflexes you have to have for short stop
         or second but its just as difficult.
    •    As a third baseman you have to be
         ready for those quick hits right to you
         an then you have to field it very quickly
         and throw it to the base necessary.
    •    You also have to be ready if there is a
         person on third. You have to straddle
         the bag and be ready for a pick off play
         coming from the pitcher. This is harder
         on third base if you have a left handed
         picture. Then you have to pay real good
         attention.

    SHORT STOP

    Short stop is one of the hardest spots
     to play on the baseball field. You
     have to be ready for any kind of hit
     and how to back up that hit.
    If the ball is hit in the outfield you
     are either a cut off (first target so the
     outfielder doesn’t hurt their arm by
     throwing it all the way to the certain
     bag) or you take over second or third
     base.
    You have to have brain for this spot.
     You have to be on your toes the
     whole time. You also have to watch
     the pitcher. If the pitcher turns and
     throws to a bag you have to be there
     for backup just in case the ball is
     overthrown.

   Outfield is a very important position. Especially
    for the left fielder. Most batters are right
    handed and come around quick on the ball
    which most of the time comes to left field.

   If the ball is hit in the infield to the shortstop or
    the third baseman you need to back them up as
    quick as possible. If the pitcher or even the
    catcher try and pick the batter off of third base
    you need to back up the third baseman.

   If the ball is hit in the outfield you have to listen
    to your team mates. If they tell you a base you
    should always throw to the base, if they tell you
    to hit the cut off you need to throw it to your
    short stop, and if it’s the last out you can just
    hold your pride and jog it in.

   If the ball is hit in the air and there is a man on
    a base, when you catch it the baseman can tag
    up (touch the bag) and take off to the next base
    trying to beat your throw.

   You have to also protect all your boundaries. If
    the ball is hit over your head it might be a
    homerun but you have to get out there because
    maybe you will be able to rob the batter by
    catching the ball before it goes over the wall.
    Same thing with the foul line/wall to your right.
    If the ball is hit foul play the ball anyways. You
    might have heard the wrong call. If the ball is
    hit an you think its going into the stands, run it
    out because you never know where the ball will
    exactly end up.

            The right fielder is still a very important
             player in the field. He plays behind the
             first baseman an also has to be high on
             their toes.
            If there is a pick off play where the
             pitcher throws to the first baseman, the
             right fielder has to be there as quick as
             possible in case of a error.

•HOME RUN IS THE BEST THING IN BASEBALL SINCE BABE
RUTH AND HIS 60 HOMERUNS IN ONE GREAT SEASON. IF
THE BALL HIT BY THE BATTER CROSSES THE FENCE PAST THE
OUTFIELDERS AND IN BETWEEN THE FOUL BALL POLES, THIS
IS AN AUTOMATIC HOMERUN. THE PLAYER HAS TO RUN
AROUND THE BASES AND TOUCH EVERY BAG AN THEN HE
GETS CREDIT FOR HIS HOMERUN HE JUST HIT. SOMETIMES
A HOMERUN CAN DETERMINE WHO WINS THE GAME.
