Theme: Let’s try Baseball5!!
I’m going to talk about “Baseball5” this time. Baseball5, which is also called B5, is a simplified version of baseball and softball. With just one rubber ball, we can play it everywhere. Regarding the number of players, we have a match of 5 to 5, so you will have more chances of batting and fielding. In the video, we explain basic rules, so please check it out.
Baseball5 is still a relatively unknown sport, but we are going to make this sport more popular. Then, we took part in the lesson of Baseball5 with women’s baseball team.
Unlike the baseball, it has only 5 innings, so it is about twenty-minutes game, which was very compact. Personally, I think both of offense and defense have interesting points.
Regarding the defense, because there is no catcher, you may give up a run if fielders don’t cover a home. I thought that it can be a good practice for improving your vision because you have to cover a base while watching other players’ movement.
Regarding the offense, I had difficulty getting a hit. It’s not important just to hit but to think where to hit.
I learned this lesson “think while moving”, through the Baseball5. Baseball5 has a sense of speed, which basic baseball doesn’t, and it was inspiring for me to get a grasp of what is going on in advance and move. Moreover, because we don’t use baseball glove, we were able to develop a sense of catching a ball with my hand. Also, I was keeping in mind that I quickly threw a ball because the length of bases is shorter than basic baseball.
If it’s raining or you don’t have a large enough ground, I’d like you to play Baseball5. Feel free to play it because you can enjoy regardless of gender and differences in skill
Then, please watch the video.
