Baseball Up to Bat

We play baseball because it’s a fun sport and many people will want to run and have fun. Baseball is a spring sport. Baseball is a ball game played between two teams competing against each other with 9 players and a field with a diamond-shaped circuit with four bases. Baseball is a team sport that players can get to know each other and have fun while playing the game (Baseball). Baseball is for people who are good at working as a team to have fun, and not always needing to to win. The baseball teams are  competitive; however, many teams play just for fun. During the Civil War, North and South America would play baseball after a “tough day of war.”  Because baseball was such a popular sport, it became the nation’s sport. 

The inventor of baseball was a young man named Abner Doubleday, in Cooperstown, New York during the summer of 1839. As soon as he went on to become a Civil War hero, baseball became America’s beloved national pastime. Baseball is made after two English games: rounders (a children’s game brought to New England by the earliest colonists) and cricket. By the time of the American Revolution, variations of such games were being played on schoolyards and college campuses across the country. They became even more popular in newly industrialized cities where men came here to find work in the mid-19th century.

Practice for Wabeno’s baseball team starts March 19th. We will have to wait and see what they have in store for this season.
