About the game
Two different teams participate in this field played game. Where a player from one of the teams throws the ball towards the player of the other team on the batting side, the player on the batting side needs to hit the ball. After the player hits the ball, the team need to take a run across the field. Players get points for running around the field around the three points which are called bases, if the player hits the ball out of the field it is treated as a Homerun, in which every player on each base can complete the run and get the point. If the player of the other team standing on the three base catches the ball before a run is completed, then the player will be considered as out.
