Well that's pretty generic. The old adage, three strikes and you're out is the best known rule of Baseball. Otherwise, each team sends a batter to home plate to try to hit a pitch from the pitcher. If you hit it and someone catches it before it hits the ground, you're out. If it hits the ground, and they throw it to first base before you get there, you're out. If not, you're safe and stay on first base and the next batter comes up. And you keep going until the team at bat makes three outs. Then you change sides and the team in the field comes to bat. Pitches can be balls, not over the plate, or strikes, thrown over the plate. Three stirkes you're out. Four balls and you get a base on balls, called a walk, and can go to first base. The team whose players get all the way around the bases and come back to home plate the most times in 6 or 9 innings wins.
