Baseball is a bat and ball game between two teams, played on a field   called a diamond because of its shape and the arrangement of the bases. Bats, balls, and gloves constitute the basic equipment needed to play Baseball. The game is normally divided into 9 innings or turns at bat for each team. Each player tries to hit the ball between or past the players on the opposing team, then run around the 4 bases and score runs by reaching home plate, earning them a Home Run. The game proceeds at a leisurely pace (too slow for some people).
