Baseball is a game originating from Earth. It is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of nine players each who take turns batting and fielding.
The offense attempts to score runs by hitting a ball that is thrown by the pitcher with a bat swung by the batter, then running counter-clockwise around a series of four bases: first, second, third, and home plate. A run is scored when a player advances around the bases and returns to home plate.
After Mars was colonized, a baseball team was formed there as well. Because Martian gravity was 40 percent less than Earth normal, the ball traveled faster and further, which some say skewed the results.
