英会話・英語 Bat & Ball Sports
I’m not that big on baseball, but with the World Baseball Classic finals just around the corner, it’s becoming more exciting to watch. Some very close games and thrilling comebacks have been played, so I’m definitely going to watch the match between The U.S and Japan.
Baseball isn’t as popular in Australia as it is in Japan. It is however, becoming more popular amongst children and young teenagers with Little League Baseball teams increasing in numbers.
Cricket is a very famous sport in Australia which is somewhat similar to baseball. Likewise, teams have batters or batsmen, fielders, and bowlers (like the pitcher in baseball). Similar to the catcher in baseball, there is the position of the wicket-keeper who stands behind the wickets and is the only player wearing catching gloves.
Both sports require fast reflexes to try and get the batsman out.
Here are some of the best catches from behind the stumps. Howzaaaat!!!
