BaseballBaseball has two teams with nine players each. The objective is to add up more runs than the opposite team at the end of a 9-round series, or as it is popularly known within the sport as "innings".
Teams take turns between offense (Batting) and defense (pitching and catching), and they switch sides when the DEFENSE team eliminates three batters or runners from the opposite team. The pitcher is in charge of throwing the ball from a center mound towards the batter, who tries to hit the ball with the bat as far as possible, and thus being able to run between the 3 bases of the field until reaching HOME, scoring a run. The current world ranking from the World Baseball and Softball Confederation (WBSC) shows us that 10 countries from our continent are placed among the TOP 20 So let's get ready to see the best teams in the world competing for the gold medal at Santiago 2023.
