History of Baseball
Some rememberable parks
Baseball has some famous parks in history. Wrigley Field (Chicago Cubs), Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox), and Yankee Stadium (New York Yankee) have many peoples vote for best stadium. While Globe Life park is sitting around 21 for votes (Texas Rangers) there is still memorable parks out there whether your favorite team is the Houston Astros or Tampa Bay Rays, every team has a stadium for a reason
The creator
The rules
Baseball is a game where you have two teams of nine or more people. One team is home (who fields first) and the away team (who bats first). The team in the field has to get three outs before the other team scores a lot of runs. Once three outs, the team in the field goes to bat. The team that batted, gets to field. The game lasts nine innings unless they are tied in the ninth inning. That is called extra innings. Or there could be a delay.
Some famous players
The creator of Baseball was a man by the name of Abner Doubleday. It was the year of 1839. He was playing with a rock and a stick when thought of his idea.
Baseball has some great baseball players. Going back to the 1940's with Jackie Robinson stealing 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and home to win the game for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Maybe Babe Ruth calling his shot at Wrigley field in Chicago. Or Sandy Koufax throwing a perfect game in 1965. Or it could be Barry Bonds breaking the all time home run record. Maybe it could be Nolan Ryan pitching his final pitch or the strikeout to pass Steve Carlton. Derek Jeter stepping into the batters box for the last time at Yankees stadium. All those are just very few of baseballs best players.
