Because in "rounders" you had to hit the ball and nine people had to round the base in order to win the game. either that or because there are nine players on the field at a timeAnswerIn 1845, a man named Alexander Cartwright, who was a member of the New York Knickerbocker Club, came up with a standardized set of rules for the game. The rules included four bases set 90 feet apart in the shape of a diamond, nine man teams, nine inning games, three outs to end an inning, three strikes to make an out, and a 45 foot distance from pitcher to home plate, and many others. Some of these rules have been amended over the years, many have not.
There are 6 outs in an inning
The number of innings in a baseball game depends on the level of competition. In Major League Baseball a complete game is normally nine (9) innings. Games that are called due to weather or games that are forfieted can be less than nine (9) innings. Games that go into extra innings can be played until the last out is made or until the winning run is scored.
There are nine innings in a major league baseball game. If the score is tied after nine innings, the game goes into extra innings and continues until one team or the other is ahead after a complete inning. Games can be called anytime on account of rain, darkness, earthquakes, etc. and can be considered complete or continued at a later date depending on the number of innings completed. A complete game requires at least five innings of play so that the losing team has five at-bats.
