America?? s Favorite Pastime
It should come as little surprise that baseball, or baseball in good English, is an American sport. The United States began as a land of settlers who brought their own culture and customs. Similarly, the precursor to the modern baseball somewhere in the 16th or 17th century, the Atlantic Ocean. There are links to the British origins of cricket, but to say that baseball is directly derived from it goes a little too far. In fact, in the early 19th century by the United States?? all kinds of ball and stick games?? played by all walks of life, from slavery to bankers. The establishment of the club was not long in coming and that’s what happened in 1845 in New York. The members of the club, with the melodious name Knickerbocker Base Ball Club, first established the rules and equal conditions. In 1846 the first organized baseball game was played by the Knickerbockers miserably lost 23-1 to New York Base Ball Club. Cincinnati Red Stockings in 1869 was the first professional team. As the growth of baseball in the United States unstoppable and where it was ?? America?? favorite pastime??.

Baseball: a Brief Explanation
While declaring a sport through text alone I think is an impossible task, but I dare to try.
Baseball, a real summer sport, played by two teams of nine men. A team consists of a pitcher, a catcher, four infielders and three fielders outside. A team innings and a field in turn, together we call it intimate. A match consists of nine innings, and the time factor is not important. Field has a diamond-shape, the distance between bases is about 27 meters. The distance from the pitcher mound in the middle of the infield is right, to home plate is over 18 meters. Two lines from home plate to the outfield define the playable area. The essential baseball material consists of a ball, a bat and a glove. Baseball is a leather ball, which is slightly larger than a tennis ball, but as many as six times as heavy. Bats are an important part of baseball. At the highest level is beaten with wooden, youth teams and senior teams playing with less metal. A leather baseball glove to catch the ball should obviously not ontbreken.Voor the helmets and groin protector is indispensable.
The team at bat will try to reach the base to eventually come out at home plate. To achieve the home plate is assigned a score. The team with the most points after nine rounds, can call themselves winners. But how do you get on base? It can be done in several ways. First, you can hit the ball thrown by the pitcher, it is called a single. If the pitcher throws four balls wide, you may at first base, a walk. If the pitcher you hit accidentally with his throw, then you can go to first base. The team that defends will naturally want to avoid a batter is on base. They can do this by zeros???? to do it. If the field team has three zeros, then it changed. Field Teams can suffer, and must defend kinds team in the area. The zeros can be made as follows:
- fires; the ball is at the base rather than the runner. This only applies if the runner is forced to the appropriate base to run, for example at first base.
- Press; a slider which is not fixed, the base can be employed. This interception is done with the ball, even in the glove.
- catch; a ball directly capture immediately implies a zero.
- Three batters; If the batter hits three times wrong or he leaves striking balls go, then he is out. Whether a ball striking a wide, it is up to a judge who is behind home plate. Battle Zone is similar in height between the knees and armpits of the batter and the width of home plate
The action of a baseball game begins every time a throw from the pitcher. With each pitch can happen again anywhere. To the layman, it all seems a bit static, but the action is constantly lurking.
The dream of every baseball player is a homerun. The ball is then released into the field again. The batter is then slowly around the bases and score. If at that time there were already runners on base, then score them too. It is even better to hit a home run when all bases are occupied. This is called a grand slam???? and then suddenly scored four points.
Nowadays baseball?? big business?? in the US The best teams like the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, play in the Major League, the highest level in the US The player transfer fees are astronomical. As was recently famous player Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees in the amount of $ 275 million was drawn for a contract of 10 years. This includes a salary of $ 33 million per year!
Baseball Players in the US are real celebrities, like pop stars. The high salaries are also naturally attracts many foreign players, especially from Japan and Cuba. Dutch know sometimes to break through to the top level. The most famous is Curacao-born Andruw Jones, who has been rotating in the Major League. Andruw was also the highest paid athlete in the Netherlands in 2006 and 2008. The
American baseball season runs from April to October and the teams play daily. The series consists of 160 games. If there are training games, playoffs and finals to be added then this number will increase to over 200. The male baseball or be richly rewarded, but in return must shine every day during the season.
The last part of the season is called the World Series. Here are fighting champion in two divisions in Major League, National League and American League Championship. The fact that only American teams at this World Cup???? go show most Americans do not like the item. In the deciding game of the World Series in 2001 saw a whopping 39 million people.
But What Can Be More Fun To Baseball?
Tactics, speed, patience, understanding, strength, technique, serenity, commitment, courage, agility, cleverness. It is in baseball.
One of the most important aspects in baseball is the duel between pitcher and batter. The pitcher will do everything to get out of the batter. Variation in the topic is extremely important because there is nothing so easy for a batsman if he knows what’s coming. By varying the speed, location and type of pitch, the batter must be constantly on guard. This duel is the essence of the sport and in my opinion the most fascinating part.
Writing about baseball is and remains just settle. Baseball should be experienced. So keep an eye on Studio Sport, or wander down to one of the approximately 200 Baseball compounds found in the Netherlands. If you are going on vacation in the United States, do not hesitate to visit a baseball game. Have fun!
