Rules
A baseball game is played among 2 teams, each composed of 9 players, that take turns playing offense, defense, and fielding. A twin of turns, one at-bat and then one in the field, by both-team constitutes an innings. One team soundly the visiting team bats in the top, or 1st half, of every innings. Another team soundly the home team bats in the bottom, or second half, of every innings. The goal of the game is to score points than the other team. The players on the team at bat attempt to score runs by circling or fulfilling a tour of the four bases set at the corners of the square-shaped baseball diamond. A player bats at home plate and must proceed counterclockwise to 1st base, 2nd base, 3rd base, and back home to score a run. The team in the field attempts to prevent runs from computing and record outs, which remove opposing players from offensive action until their turn in their team's batting order comes up once again. When three outs are recorded, the teams switch roles for the next half innings. If the score of the game is tied after 9 innings, extra innings are played to resolve the contest. Many amateur games, particularly unorganized ones, involve several numbers of players and innings. 

The number of players on a baseball roster, squad, or varies through the league and by the level of organized play. The baseball team has a roster of twenty-five players with specific roles. In terms of the play formation, 9 innings, unless a game is tied, at which point they play additional innings until an inning ends with one team in the lead. In terms of time, a short baseball game takes about two hours, a normal one takes about three hours, and there is not really any upper limit.
