Baseball players are the sports persons who are skilled at playing baseball and play the game as an amateur or professional.  Baseball is a bat and ball game that is played between two teams consisting of nine players each.

Baseball became the national sport of the U.S. by the late 19th century and is today popular in North America, Central and South America, East Asia and Europe. Baseball is a sport of precision.
