Baseball Field Standard Dimensions

Baseball is a very popular outdoor game in major parts of the world, such as central and south America, the Caribbean, and east Asia. It is played with a bat and ball between two different teams of nine players each. An inning is split into two halves: the top half of the inning, where the visiting team bats and the home team plays defense, and the bottom half of the inning, where the visiting team plays defense and the home team bats. A batter who is able to advance around all three bases to cross home plate counts as a run. The team with the most runs wins. [1]
