Example Concept


Baseball


Baseball is a sport involving 9
players positioned in various places on a field, who are attempting to keep
the other team from advancing bases.



There are many ways to score runs in
baseball. The most efficient way is for your team to get a series of base
hits eventually bringing runners home. In order to do this, players must have
good hitting ability, running ability, and judgment.



Quality pitchers are more important
than power hitters, because keeping runs off the board could give the
pitcher’s team more opportunity to win. Teams that have better pitchers
almost always end up being the better team.
