Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two opposing teams who take turns batting and fielding. The game proceeds when a player on the fielding team, called the pitcher, throws a ball which a player on the batting team tries to hit with a bat.
The objectives of the offensive team are to hit the ball into the field of play, and to run the bases – having its runners advance counter-clockwise around four bases to score what are called “runs”. The objective of the defensive team is to prevent batters from becoming runners, and to prevent runners’ advance around the bases.
A run is scored when a runner legally advances around the bases in order and touches home plate. The team who scores the most runs by the end of the game is the winner.
