There are many positives and negatives to play on a baseball team.The game of baseball has an unique way of scoring.There are many positive things about being on a baseball team such as challenging yourself,working as a team,and making multiple strategies that fit your team.There could be a couple of negative things considering on your athletic ability such as not having very much playing time out in the field,and arguing/disagreeing with your teammates making poor teamwork.

“During the first half of each inning, the visiting team bats and attempts to score points, called runs, while the home team players take their respective defensive positions in the field.” (Howstuffworks.com par,two) One team will take the field while the other team will have one person bat against the other team and try to get back to the home plate after hitting the ball and getting through all three other bases.After you wither watch the ball three times or tag out the other players before they can touch the bag then the team switch over and now the other team will bat and the opposing team will now field.

The pros of baseball are you can have many opportunities to make friendships and be part of a team,you can have or earn experience on the sport while you play the sport,you can also build up a lot of hand eye coordination.The cons of a baseball team is that you might not get as much playing time and there might be too many people to let you play,you also might just not be as athletic as other people/players on your team.There could be drama on the team or you might not learn enough because of lack of playing time.

“Something that is even tougher, they may no longer be a starter, for the first time in their life. For some, that leads to total shutdown. For others, they take on the challenge and work to be ready when their opportunity arises.”(par,eight Baseball teamwork)Some players don’t start on a baseball team or don’t see the field very much at all,but when the people that usually don’t come in they play their hardest and try not to let their teams down.If you work hard on a team when you get the playing time then the odds of you playing more and more are more than likely then next time your team has a game and it can build your athletic ability and your teamwork skills.The pros of having teamwork is that you can rely on your teammates more often and your teammates can rely on you too.The cons of having teamwork is that you might not work better as a team at all and your team might just not work well together,all of you might just work better independently.

“Baseball is a difficult sport to learn so lots of people stop playing it at a early age.”(Aiden Allen par,one).Baseball might be an extremely difficult sport and most people decide not to play baseball or quit at an early age but those who don’t have many opportunities to make friendships and play on some of their favorite teams that they watched on their television growing up.The sport of baseball can help your team build friendships and it pushes you to your limits to win the game any time you play.
