The capital is so eager to encourage young people to sports education.
Baseball is a sports game with a ball and a bat. The game takes place between two teams of nine players, who alternately play in defense and attack. The task of the team playing in the attack is to earn wounds or run. To do this, players need to bounce the ball thrown by the pitcher, and then run through four bases in a counterclockwise direction. There are four bases: first, second, third and home. The wound is credited when the player has passed all the bases and returned home.
Baseball is popular in North America, some parts of Central and South America, the Caribbean, East Asia, especially Japan. Baseball is an Olympic sport. He was a member of the Summer Olympics program from 1992 (Barcelona) to 2008 (Beijing). The type of baseball with a bigger ball is called softball.
