Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of nine players each, who take turns batting and fielding. The batting team attempts to score runs by hitting a ball that is thrown by the pitcher with a bat swung by the batter, the running counter-clockwise around a series of four bases. A run is scored when a player advances around the bases and returns to home plate.
