Baseball Basic Rules For Kids
The bat is a club meant to hit the ball. It is usually made of wood or metal. In professional baseball, players are not allowed to use metal bats.
To score a run, a player must make it back to homebase on the diamond without being outed by the other team.
The ball is a small round object that players attempt to throw, hit, and catch on every play.
Baseball games last up to 9 innings.
Each inning consists of 3 outs that the defensive team has to get before they can take their turn batting.
At the end of 9 innings, the team with the most runs wins.
If the game is tied, the teams play extra innings until a winner is decided.
There are four bases on a baseball field and if a player touches all of them and gets back to home plate, they score a run for their team.
