Baseball Americas' pasttime

(Description) Baseball is a sport played by many. The sport was created by a man named Abner Doubleday in Cooperstein, New York. There are a total of 9 positions in baseball. Each position has a different purpose. For example, a pitchers job is to throw the ball to the batter while, the catchers job is to catch the ball if the batter misses it and throw the runners out.

(compare and contrast) There are 2 different bats in baseball, wooden and aluminum. If you have an aluminum bat, The aluminum bat has a better durability, performance, and tradition. Aluminum bats allow baseball player to hit the ball farther and faster than with a wooden bat for a few different reasons. The first reason is that a player can swing an aluminum bat about 5 to 10 miles per hour faster than a wooden bat.

(Problem and solution) Baseball isn't always safe. People have been badly injured before. To help players not get head injuries, the MLB made players wear helmets in 1956. For over half a century players had no protection for the head. One reason for the problem was that players just didn't care about wearing a helmet. In 1983 the MLB enforced the rule of players having to wear a helmet with an ear flap.

(Sequence) Over the past 108 years, the MLB has expanded from 16 teams to 30 teams. Back in the beginning of baseball, the leading hitter for home runs was Tim Jordan. Over time better players have come and one of them was named Babe Ruth. He was known as the greatest player to ever live and is number 1 for home runs. Not long after, Willie Mays came and took second place in leading home runs of all time.

(Cause and Effect) Have you ever gotten really mad at someone? Well if that happens in baseball and you decide to fight them you can get ejected. over the past years there have been 22 ejections in the world series but there are countless amounts regularly in a game.
