BASEBALL & SOFTBALL

hello, we are the essex blades baseball & softball club


Baseball comprises of 9 total players. The aim is to score as many run within the 7 innings by hitting a homerun or scoring by running home. An inning occurs when both teams have batted and fielded. Defensively the aim is to get opposing players out by catching it in the air, tagging them or throwing it to base before they get there. A Softball pitch has 3 bases like Baseball and in Softball it is under arm slow pitching instead of fast pitching. In Softball there is typically 5 Women, 4 Men whereas Baseball can be all one gender.
