Baseball is played on a field shaped like a diamond. A pitcher throws a ball to the batter. The player with the bat tries to hit the ball. Other players try to catch it. Or they race the batter to the base. If they get there with the ball first, the batter is out.

The Boston Red Sox play at Fenway Park. The left field wall there is closer to home plate than in most parks. It was built very high to keep too many home runs from going over it. People call it the “Green Monster.” David Ortiz hit a lot of balls off and over the Green Monster.
