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. The teams take turns batting and fielding. Baseball in its modern form evolved from a series of older bat and ball games in England in the 18th century and later spread to different parts of the world. 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. The end result of a game depends heavily on the accuracy of the players—a pitcher’s throw, the batter’s swing of a bat, and the runners’ speed.
