The point of baseball is to hit the ball and run the bases.
Well, I do not know the whole detail to this question but can give some insight. The reason why baseball players run the bases counter clockwise along with NASCAR, INDY, horse racing, dogs, running counter clockwise etc., has a lot to do with the American Revolution. Early Americans hated the British so much they wanted to do almost eveything opposite to their rules. In England and Europe, they run car and horse races clockwise, and I think Cricket runs clockwise as well, although they do not have a diamond like American Baseball. Hope that helps!
So the players have something to run to
Because when you hit the ball, you run around the bases.
they use bases and a ball: you "run the bases", three spots located on the baseball diamond, when you hit the ball.
its baseball because you run around bases and you play with a ball
Right handed batters were predominant in those days, and their batting stance transitions more smoothly into the run to where first base currently sits.
No...you run counterclockwise.
If you want to get pelt in your next at bat then YES
Swing hard, aim for the ball and run once you hit it. Oh, don't forget to run to all the bases in a counter clockwise direction.
A triple is when you hit the ball and you get to third base when you run around the bases.
