Because if you over run first it is no big deal. this is because singles in baseball are alot mor common than doubles and triples. if you overrun second or third then it will look like you are continueing to run to the next base but when you over run first it is obvious that you are staying at frist base.

This question makes little sense. First of all, there are way more black players than Asian players, so that assumption is just wrong. Second, "Want?" Baseball owners want to hire the best baseball PLAYERS based on talent, whatever their skin color is.

There are two conflicting stories as to the first recorded high five. The first claims that it was first performed by two Los Angeles baseball players in 1977. The second is between two Louisville college basketball players in 1978.

The minimum number of player on a field at one time is 8... usually a first or second baseman is left out. Firts baseman will cover first & second and vis versa.

There are 3 rounds. The first round has 8 players and the top 4 players advance to the second round. The second round has 4 players and the top 2 players advance. The totals for the first round are counted again in the second round - a good first round can sometimes guarantee entrance to the final round. The final round is head-to-head.

There are nine players on defense. The first baseman, second basman, shortstop, thirdbaseman, pitcher, catcher, left fielder, right fielder, and center fielder. The number of those on offensive that are on the field varies on how many players get to the bases without getting out.

If the pitcher hits the batter with a pitch. The player is allowed first base at no risk, and any displaced players are allowed to advance without any risk. However, the runners cannot advance more than one base.

In the lineups, a total of 18 players could be playing in a baseball game (2 pitchers, catchers, first basemen, second basemen, third basemen, shortstop and 6 outfielders). Off the field one team could have up to 40 players, 1 manager and 6 coaches.

Women were somewhat allowed in baseball in 1867 when Dolly Vardens became the first woman to play on a professional team for pay. In 1875 fans attended the first official women's baseball game.
