Baseball is a bat-and-ball game. It is played between two teams. There are nine players on each team. They all take turns for batting and fielding. The batting team tries to score runs by hitting a ball by the batter. Once the ball is hit, then all this team’s players must run counter-clockwise around a series of four bases: a home plate and three more — a first, a second and a third. A run can be only scored when a player advances around the bases, touching a home plate.
Those players who stay on the batting team’s part of the field take turns for hitting against the pitcher of the opposing, the fielding team. The players from the last-mentioned team have to prevent runs by getting hitters out in any of several ways. That player on the batting team who reaches a base safely can try to advance to subsequent bases during teammates' turns batting later.
The teams must switch between fielding and batting whenever the fielding team records three outs. A game of baseball is known to be composed of nine “innings”. Thus, the team with the greater number of runs at the end of the game can be considered to be the winner. In case the scores are tied at the end of nine innings, extra innings can be played. There is no game clock in Baseball but in case there is not as much time for creating the baseball-related drawings from a scratch, the Baseball solution can be used.
Being a useful extension to the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software, the Baseball solution offers the pre-made samples and templates that all can be used as a base for making the professionally-looking baseball-related diagrams. Having the stencil libraries with vector objects for drawing baseball diagrams, plays and illustrations, any ConceptDraw DIAGRAM user might find the Baseball solution a useful tool for making the professionally-looking drawings such as vivid and scalable vector sports diagrams to use in documents, presentations and on the websites.
There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application by using the Baseball solution.
Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.
All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or
converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many
other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE. The Baseball solution is available to all
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users to get installed and used while working in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software.
Example 1: Baseball Field Dimensions Sample
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Baseball Fields Library from the Baseball Solution. An experienced user spent 20 minutes creating this sample.
All field objects from the Baseball Fields Library were drawn to official dimensions. You can drag and drop a field from the library and start using it. Our designer prepared this sample for you to modify or use as is.
Example 2: Baseball Defence Positions
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Baseball Field and Baseball Positions Libraries from the Baseball Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.
One just simply can easily drag and drop field and positions objects from libraries you can produce any baseball diagram in minutes. Placing text labels makes your diagram clear and easy to understand.
Example 3: Baseball — Fielding Drill: Around The World
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Baseball Fields Library from the Baseball Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.
Depicting movements using arrows is a common practice. To add timing to your explanation place arrows and positions onto different layers, and then make them visible or invisible according to stages of the story.
Example 4: Baseball — Basic Bunt Coverage: Runner at 2nd
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Baseball Field Library from the Baseball Solution. An experienced user spent 7 minutes creating this sample.
If your audience is familiar with baseball terms and rules a simple drawing is enough to explain any formation or play. Using the same style for all sport drawings will make your drawings recognizable.
Both ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software and the Baseball solution can help creating the
sporting illustrations you need. The Baseball solution can be found in the Sport area of ConceptDraw STORE application that can be downloaded from this site.
Make sure that both ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and ConceptDraw STORE applications are installed on your computer before you get started.
How to install
After ConceptDraw STORE and ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are downloaded and installed, you can install the Baseball solution from the ConceptDraw STORE.
To make sure that you are doing it all right, use the pre-designed symbols from the stencil libraries from the solution to make your drawings look smart and professional. Also, the pre-made examples from this solution can be used as drafts so your own drawings can be based on them. Using the samples, you can always change their structures, colors and data.
