Baseball was first invented in 1839 by abner Doubleday. After 6 years of getting used to the new sport alexander joy Cartwright develops the rules of baseball. After the rules were finalized the first official game of baseball was played in 1846, it was the knickerbockers and a group of cricket players. After 20 years of play, the first women’s baseball team was created in 1866 from Vassar College. In 1867 candy Cummings threw the first curve ball ever thrown in the national baseball league. In 1877 4 players are banned from the national baseball league for taking bribes. Banned is most likely in that situation forever.

Other than calling those types of decisions the referees also are the one to see if are play review regulations, foreword, over view, manager challenges, crew chief reviews etc. is necessary. I’ve only played baseball in physical education and I played when I was 5/6 but it hasn’t really been a sport for me. I’m a physical type of player I like boxing, football and games like that and I know every once in while baseball can get a bit physical but that’s what I would change. So if the batter hit a fly ball and is watching it you can prevent him from scoring a point by hitting him and slowing him down so he wont score and it would be easier to get a out to. Also I would change the rules for a fly ball catch and out. I would change that because you put a lot of effort into hitting that
