Hello, everyone. We are group 5 and our presentation is about BASEBALL.
Basically, baseball is divided into offenders and defenders. A team which are offenders, hit the ball
and run from base to base until they pass the home base. The other team which are defenders
has 9 positions. One is pitcher who throws a ball to a batter and the others catch a ball that is
hit by batters and toss to any bases. When a defenders team gets three-out count, the half
inning is over and the offensive and defensive positions are changed. As a general rule, baseball
games in ninth inning, a team which gets more running scores wins the game. In each inning,
each team has a turn to bat and score runs. However, when a batter strikes out or was not able
to hit the ball that was thrown by a pitcher three times, the team’s half inning ends. And the
game isn’t time-limited. So far, this explanation is about the rule of baseball. From now on, we will
introduce to you about some famous baseball players. First of all, Suzuki Ichiro.

but velocity is slower. The last one is Tanaka Masahiro. He is Japanese and born in 1988. He
belongs to New York Yankees with Ichiro. This is a first season that he signed with New York
Yankees. And he has a record that 28 wins as a pitcher in Japanese professional baseball league.
