Baseball may not be very popular across the world but it is a popular sport in North America. The game has considerable acceptance in Central and South America, the Caribbean and some of the East Asian countries. The Major League Baseball (MLB) in the United States and Canada is the second-wealthiest sports league in the world in revenue terms. It is basically a bat-and-ball game that is played between two nine-a-side teams, alternately batting and fielding in a field. The pitcher of the fielding team throws the ball to a player of the batting team who hits the ball into the field. Hits allow the batting players to run between what are called bases to score runs.
Depending on the level of organized play and the league, the roster strength differs in baseball. There are 25 players in the rosters of teams in Major League Baseball (MLB). The players have varied roles in the field. Eight position players will be featured in a 25-man squad consisting of the catcher, four infielders and three outfielders. Position players will take part in the game on a regular basis. The roster also has five starting pitchers who make up the team's starting rotation or pitching rotation. There will be six relief pitchers in the bullpen. Other players in the squad are backup infielders, backup outfielders, a pinch hitter, a utility player and a utility reliever.
A baseball game starts with a pitch which is throwing the baseball toward the home plate. The players who throw are essentially pitchers, they employ a variety of pitches with different trajectories and velocities to puzzle the batter. The catcher is the one who traditionally chooses the type of pitch. He gives signals to the pitcher using his fingers to which the latter can object with a headshake. Among the types, the most common pitch is the fastball. Most pitchers tend to favour four-seam fastball while cutters, sinkers, split-finger fastballs and two-seam fastballs are also used.
