The Development Of The Rules In Baseball

Author: Marian Aldana

A great number of high school students are talented baseball players, and thus college baseball recruiting for sports management scholarships focuses a lot on high school baseball athletes.

Baseball is a game comprised of two teams with nine players each. The team that wins is the one that makes the most runs. In a run, a player hits a ball thrown by another player, and runs past four markers called bases, which are arranged at the corners of a ninety-foot square, or diamond. The two teams take turns in batting and fielding, and the team that makes the most runs is declared the winner.

The first team to play baseball under a set of explicit, definitive rules was the New York Knickerbockers. This team, founded on September 23, 1845, was meant as a social club for the upper middle classes of New York City, and never become a professional club. The members, under the leadership of Alexander Cartwright, formulated the "Knickerbocker Rules." A major part of the rules was concerned with organizational matters, but they also laid out guidelines for playing the game.

Writing the rules, however, didn't give the Knickerbockers the win in the first known competitive game between two clubs to play under the guidelines. This was held at Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey on June 19, 1846. The so-called "self-styled" New York Nine defeated the Knickerbockers by a score of 23 to 1. Nevertheless, the Knickerbocker Rules were rapidly adopted by teams in the New York area and their version of baseball became known as the "New York Game" (as opposed to the "Massachusetts Game", played by clubs in the Boston area).

It is important for high school students to know more than the basics in order to succeed in college baseball recruiting and sports management scholarships. Many are hoping to get noticed during college baseball recruiting in order to play in college baseball teams. Fortunately, the Internet has proven to be a useful venue for both athletes in high school and athletic recruiters looking for new talent. There are many websites and online forums wherein students and scouts can come together and interact. D1Athletes is an online community wherein student athletes and coaches alike can share and exchange information they need concerning sports management scholarships.
