Rules of baseball

Spring is the time of the year when most people head out and play a few games of baseball. Sand in the face, diamond freshly painted and uniforms still pristine, there is something magical about the game of baseball. Do you know the rules of the game? Before you play any type of baseball, even the type that you are playing from your local or online casino in the form of a gambling machine, you should know a few of the rules of the game.

First, consider the simple stuff such as the fact that each player gets to swing as many times as he needs to in order to reach the magical one that sends him to first base, or to the bench. Any ball thrown outside of the square is considered a ball. Four of those and you walk to first base. Strikes are those that the pitcher throws right into the square and the player fails to hit. Three of those and you are on the bench. It is that simple. Get some help from the coach and get your gear quick! The season is about to start!
