Event Description

Baseball is a sport in which two teams with 9 players play in a stadium. The pitcher throws a ball which is the size of a fist, and the batter hits the ball. The objective of the game is to score more points than the opposing team. A point is earned when a player runs through all the 4 bases. If 3 players are considered out on bat or on base, the sides change.

Baseball is a game in which 2 teams of 9 players (10 when a designated hitter is used), with their own coaches, play under the decisions of the umpires in a stadium surrounded by fences.
Each team aims to win, by earning more points than the opposing team.
After the game, the team with the most points wins, according to the rules.

Softball

A regular softball games is carried out until the 7th inning. If there is a tie after 7 innings, a tie-breaker (similar to that of Baseball) is implemented from the 8th. A team is composed of 9 players, and if a team chooses to apply the designated hitter system, the team will have 10 players. Positions of players are pitcher, catcher, 1st base, 2nd base, 3rd base, short-stop, right field, center field, and left field. If a hitter is ruled three strikes, he/she shall be called strike out. If he/she is ruled 4 balls, then the hitter shall walk to first base on “base on balls”. Otherwise most of the rules such as hit, homerun, outs are similar to baseball. However, the pitcher swings his/her arm around like a windmill when pitching the ball.
