Transcript of The Baseball
The baseballs purpose was to have the pitcher throw the baseball and strike out the batter. The purpose of the baseball for the batter is to hit the ball as far as they can and run around the bases. The creator of the baseball was Abner Doubleday.

How it was used in the past and the present
In the past you would use the the baseball to play round ball which is when you hit a baseball into a field of thirty people ad the first one to get the ball wins. Today you use the baseball to play baseball which is when the pitcher pitches the ball to the batter and the batter tries to hit it and run around the bases. The pitcher wants to strike the batter out and the infielders want to get the ball and throw to first base before the batter can get to first. The outfielders want to catch the ball and get it into the infield before the base runner can go all the way around the bases and touch home plate. If the base runner touches home plate then he scores a run for his team. "History of Baseball - Alexander Cartwright." About.com Inventors. About.com, n.d. Web. 19 Sept. 2014.
An Innovation for the baseball is a rosin bag. The rosin bag helps you get a better grip on the ball so that when you are pitching you can throw it to the location easier. Another one is the laces on the ball. The laces also help you get a better grip on the ball. "Baseball Info Solutions." Innovations at. N.p., n.d. Web. 19 Sept. 2014.
How it helps and how it doesnt
The baseball encourages kids to play the sport of baseball. This makes the kids go outside and excersising while having fun. This gets kids fit so they wont grow up to be lazy and overweight. It can effect people in a negative way because some people may not like sports and they wouldnt want more sports being created.

Baseball can be pretty cool because it has a lot of things involved in it like science. It involves science because if you are batting you have to observe the pitcher and see where the ball goes. The speed of the ball is recorded with a radar gun so baseball involves technology. It also involves engineering because you have to build all the objects like a bat or baseball. It also involves mathematics because the ball travels a certain speed each time so if you would want to find out the average speed of the pitcher you would have to use math to find out the average speed of the pitcher.
