    Okay. Got that it is baseball for kiddies.  What size ball?  Like our Softball (6-8in. diameter)? How is the field laid out?  Sounds interesting.

    See, I am senile!  What size is the bat? Shorter or longer than our baseball?

    I like that idea! No, it's because Fi HATES sport. Danny likes sport doen't he? Maybe he knows.

    Fi, Fi, Fi, u really need to train Fi-Danny to stop being so distracting, hes almost as bad as S-Greg

    And Suz is talking bout baseball vs. rounders!!

    And its basically the same bt the ball is only like 7cm, with a shrt wooden bat, and u have to keep hold of the bat whilst ur runing or else ur out, and im guessing same kinda field, bt im nt sure, 4 posts, bowler, backstop etc.

    Baseball has about the same size ball (we aren't metric here) 3in diameter.  With four bases set up like a diamond: Home, 1st, 2nd, & 3rd.  You bat from home with a 22" to 30" bat (aluminium or wood).  Usually the field positions are INFIELD: Catcher (at home plate), 1st 2nd & 3rd basemen, shortstop (between 2nd & 3rd) and the pitcher (on the mound in the middle of the diamond).  OUTFIELD: 3 men Rt. field (behind and between 1st & 2nd), Center Field (behind 2nd) and Lt. Field (behind and between 2nd & 3rd).  You score by running the bases and making it back to home without getting out. 

    Now, how do you play rounders?  How long is the bat?  Why do you have to run with it? What is a bowler?  Come on Pirate, give me more info.

    What is 'stumping'? Is that like tagging the runner out? Can you get the runner out by tagging the base before he gets there? Are they real posts or bags (ours are bags anchored in place)? Thanks for helping me learn something new.

    Stumping is hitting the post/base (basically a post bout 1m high weighted down) with the ball, you, as a fielder, have to touch the ball to the post before the runner touches it with the bat! But you have to touch it, not throw the ball at it, and you have to run when your hitting, you dont get 3 chances, unless its a no-ball, like wide or too low/high etc. And as for scoring, if you hit the ball and get to 2nd post then you get 1/2, if you get all the way round then you get a rounder, and if you dont hit it but get all the way round its 1/2!! also if the pitcher bowls 3 no-balls then you get 1/2! anything else you wana know?  im happy to help

    Our no-ball is like your strike, i think, you dont have to run cos its the pitchers fault that they didnt throw proply, but if it is a no-ball and you do hit it, i.e. even if it is low/high, then you can still run if you want, and get the points!! In baseball is it a strike when the pitcher bowls bad, or when the hitter misses? coz in rounders if it is a good ball and the hitter misses then they still have to run.

    Gotcha PPV!  As I understand, your no-ball is like our 'ball' call.  A 'ball' is a bad pitch.  It was either too high/low or didn't pass over the plate (home base).  A strike is a ball that passes over the plate and is not hit or the batter swings at a ball (any kind) and misses.  In baseball, you can not run to a base unless you hit the ball.  If you get 3 strikes, you have struck out and your turn at bat is over.  When your team has 3 players strike out in an inning, the team's turn at bat is over for that inning.  An inning is a turn at bat for each team and there are 9 innings in a game. Tell me more about rounders.  It sounds interesting.  You get to run even if you don't hit the ball?  Why must you carry the bat?
