Baseball started in the United States. It quickly spread to the Carribean, South America, and Japan. There are baseball leagues all over the Americas, Asia, and Europe. It is one of the most popular sports in the world. And now, baseball is in Israel.
In baseball, there are 9 players per team. One team is on defense, "in the field". One team is on offense, "hitting". The "pitcher" from the team on defense throws the ball. The hitter from the team on offense "hits" the ball. If the hitter "swings and misses", which is called a "strike", 3 times, he is "out". After 3 outs, the teams switch sides. Each time the teams switch, it's called an "inning". There are 9 innings in a game. The idea is to "score" more "runs", or points, than the other team. Here is how to score a run in baseball... There are 4 "bases"; "home plate", where the hitter starts, "1st base", "2nd base", and "3rd base". When the hitter hits the ball, he runs around the bases until he either scores, or until the defense stops him by getting him out by tagging him with the ball. If the hitter gets all the way around the bases and returns "safely" to home plate, where he started, it is 1 run.
The team with the most runs at the end of the game wins.
And that... is baseball!
