It is all about the base

The funny thing here is when I started trading and betting on baseball, I really hated this sport. I found everything that happened on the itch a total nonsense. I even could not realize why there was so big crowds at the stadiums. Step by step, with every single game I watched and traded , I began to fall in love with this sport. Its origin is actually cricket ( maybe some day there will be article also for cricket).

Actually most of the fans around the world are impressed by the pitchers. Those magicians , who can do incredible things with the small ball and to make every single batter to look like a small, stupid and awkward boy. Other do like and love when there is a massive hit, a home run is scored , or even the best situation that could occur -grand slam ,4 points scored.

All I like and love are the bases : 1 base ,2nd , base, 3rd and most dangerous one 4th base (home run or the last castle of defending team). Let’s try to figure my point of view :

1.Actually I like most strategy in all games with balls ( soccer,basketball, handball,volleyball,baseball and american football). Strategy is everything that should happen according to the directions and movement of the ball.

2. Everything in baseball looks so simple, but it is not just like that. It is a piece of cake for the professional players, for us the spectators is far not that easy.

3. To steal,fight, take, have or to win a base. This is the most important issue in this magnificent sport. Every player on the pitch had its eyes open on 12 , because without a hit or strike or anything else, you can steal a base if the defender has his attention focused not only at the game.

4. To have the guts after good hit ,to run from base 1 to base 3. There was a Japanese player, I do not remember his name, he was the king of doing this exercise. He had the guts , the will and the experience to take bases like little children, eat hot dogs.

5.To save , protect the base. The most dramatic situations happen usually on 4th base, when a home run can be prevented. You can see one of the best and most beautiful defensive plays on base number 4.

6. When you are a keen fan of baseball, you listen to the sounds around the bases. Is the defender too nervous? Can someone run that far from base 1 to base 4? What the eyes of everyone on the pitch telling?

7. When you know and you are aware of all the details, all other things that happen when the ball is hit or missed , they just do color the masterpiece of the pitch called : “baseball game”.

Baseball is attracting more and more fans all around the globe. If you are the one that is hesitating , please read again this article. See you in the soonest time at base 3:)
