Like most sports, baseball has some rules. If you don't know them you could get thrown out of the game. Here are some of the basic rules.
1. INNINGS. In baseball there are nine innings. One team will first bat. Each player will have a turn to bat. (Not all in the same inning.) The pitcher will throw the ball and if it is in the strike zone, it is called a strike. If you get three strikes, you are out. If three players on your team get out, your team goes in the field. Once you are in the field he have to try to get the people on the other team out. Once the other team bats and they get three outs, it is a new inning.
2. OUTS. There are ways to get out while you are batting. If you get three strikes, you are out. If you hit the ball and someone playing the field catches it, you are out. If you hit the ball and it crosses the foul line, it is a foul and it counts as a strike. The most amount of strikes you can get if you hit it passed the foul line is two. The third foul and on does not count as a strike. You just keep hitting the ball until you miss it or you hit it onto the field. If you hit the ball into the field and you run to first base, the other players are going to throw the ball to first base. You have to get there before the ball. If the first baseman catches the ball that is thrown to him and he steps on the base before you, you are out.
3. BATTING. Batting is the only way you can score runs. Runs are what makes you the winning team or the losing team. If you are "on deck", you are batting next. Once you are up, you go to home plate. Depending on how tall you, are is where the strike zone is. If the pitcher throws inside the strike zone you want to try to hit the ball. All you do is swing the bat and try to level the ball with the bat. Once you hit the ball you have to run to first base.
4. RUNNING. When you hit the ball, you need to run to first base. If you get out you go back to the dugout. If you hit the ball far enough and you think you can make it to second base, then run to second. If you think you could make it to third, then run to third. Be careful because at any of the bases you can get called out. If you are safe on first base you have the chance to steal a base. (Do not take the base and run away with it.) You can steal a base at any time when the pitcher has the ball and is ready to pitch. (You can even try to steal when the pitcher is going into his wind-up or before that, but good luck. Stealing before a pitcher goes into his wind-up can result in a pick-off or a feeble attempt to get to the base you're trying to steal.)
5. FOUL LINE. A ball hit can result in a foul ball if it doesn't pass first or third base, without at least touching the line past the base. However, the ball can be a fair ball but still be completely foul if it passes the foul line past either the first or third period base. A ball can also be foul by where your feet are. If both feet are beyond the foul line and touch the ball, it is a foul ball. If you have at least one foot on the other side of the foul line or touching the foul line and drop the ball, it is a fair ball.
6. PITCHING. Like many sports there are many positions. Pitcher is one of them. There are many types of pitches. A curve ball, fastball, slider, palm ball, screw ball, knuckle ball, circle changeup and changeup. As long as it is in the strike zone, it is a strike. If it is outside the strike zone, it is a ball.
