Anonymous said: i don't know who to ask this and i'm sure it's a lot to ask so if you don't want to do it, i understand! i'm new to baseball and i'm trying to figure out everything by watching matches and i read the wikipedia page to understand the rules but i'm having problem understanding all these stats i see on the screen during a match, what are those? i mean even the rules on wikipedia are written for someone who understand the game already, but what if you're new like me? can u explain some basics to me?
Sure anon! I’ll go over the really basic things with you if that’s okay and then if I miss anything, please let me know or come back and ask questions! This is a LOT of rambling and if anything is unclear please ask because I just sorta spewed out everything I could think of and it ended up being 1500 words lol.
As soneone who always gravitated towards the NBA & NFL, rules and positions of baseball, golf, hockey and soccer have always been vague to me too. This was the most informative piece of writing I’ve ever read on baseball haha. Do one for the others if you can.
