EC San Diego students and staff enjoy a summertime baseball game

There’s nothing more American than baseball.

Baseball started in America in 1845. Baseball is referred to as America’s favorite pastime. A pastime is something you do (and have done before) in your free time. Baseball has a long history in America and it’s popular in several other countries, too.

Here are some facts that you may or may not know about baseball, from EC San Diego teacher Autumn:

  • A baseball team has 9 players.
  • A baseball game has no time limit.
  • In baseball points are called “runs.”
  • There are 30 baseball teams in the MLB (Major League Baseball).

California has 5 baseball teams: San Diego Padres, Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels, Oakland Athletics, and San Francisco Giants.

Baseball is a fantastic sport and you must experience the game live at least one time.

Next Saturday, August 20th join teacher Autumn and EC San Diego English students to watch the San Diego Padres play the Arizona Diamondbacks!
