What is Baseball?

Baseball is played by two teams of nine players each. The teams take turns batting and fielding. The batting team is called the offensive team and the fielding team is called the defensive team.

BaseballSoftballUK (BSUK) is the development agency for baseball and softball in the United Kingdom. Whether you're a beginner, a relative novice or an experienced player, you'll find more information on Baseball and Softball on the Baseball Softball UK website.

Benefits

  • Running, batting and throwing provide similar exercise to that you'd expect from a cricket game.
  • Batting will build upper-body strength
  • Sprint around the bases, coupled with some fielding, will take care of around 400 calories in a game.

Costs

To join a baseball/softball team will require a membership from that team which can be around £100 a year.
