|Example Concept||Baseball||Baseball is a sport involving 9 players positioned in various places on a field, who are attempting to keep the other team from advancing bases.||There are many ways to score runs in baseball. The most efficient way is for your team to get a series of base hits eventually bringing runners home. In order to do this, players must have good hitting ability, running ability, and judgment.||Quality pitchers are more important than power hitters, because keeping runs off the board could give the pitcher’s team more opportunity to win. Teams that have better pitchers almost always end up being the better team.|
