A Simple Explanation of Baseball

This is a game played by two teams. When one is out the other is in. The one that's in sends players out one at a time to see if they can get in before they get out. If they get out before they get in, they come in, but it doesn't count. If they get in before they get out it does count.

When the ones who are out get three outs from the ones who are in, the team that's out comes in and the team in goes out to try to get those going in out before they get in without being out.

When both teams have been in and out nine times the game is over. The team with the most in without being out before coming in wins unless the ones in are equal. In which case, the last ones in go out to get the ones in out before they get in without being out.

The game will end when each team has the same number of ins out but one team has more in without being out before coming in.

The game will end when both teams have been in and out nine times, but only if one team has more ins without being out. Otherwise both teams go in and out again in the hopes that one team will have more ins than the other. Unless it rains.

Congrats to Diamond the dog on filling out her passport and great pictures from both the Staunton-Fauquier and Woodstock-Luray game.
