This Day in History March 7… 歷史上的今天 3月7日

In the game of baseball, there are nine innings. Each inning gives both teams a turn to hit and to be in the field. After these nine innings, the game is over. However, this was not always how baseball was played. It only became official on March 7, 1857. Before that, baseball games ended when one of the teams scored nine runs. Today, many people still like to play baseball by the old rules. These teams wear old-fashioned uniforms, don't use gloves, and are always polite during the game. Some even use old-fashioned ways of speaking. No matter how the game is played, baseball is still one of the favorite sports around the world.
