What’s it all about?
Baseball is played by two teams of nine players each. The teams take turns batting and fielding. The batting team is called the offensive team and the fielding team is called the defensive team.
Hit the Pitch is Baseball Softball UK’s development programme aimed at creating new playing opportunities and attracting youth, college, university and adult players to softball and baseball.
There are three adult (ages 14+) baseball clubs in Kent – these are Tonbridge Baseball Club, Kent Mariners Baseball team and Kent Buccaneers. Kent Buccaneers also have junior teams for those younger than 14, and junior baseball is also provided by Kent Crushers in the East Kent area.
Baseball Softball UK (BSUK) is the development agency for baseball and softball in the UK.
