In the major league's early decades players on several teams mostly attempted striches which routinely failed because of their jobs which were sufficiently threatend in common words the most strict rules of baseball were their contracts and the reserve clause, because of which players were bounded and limited to their own teams, even when their contracts had ended tended to keep an eye or check on the players. motivated by dislikes for particularly stingy owner Charles Comiskey and Gamblers Payoffs. the real players and the players who made promises to the Chicago White Sox come to conspired to throw the 1919 world series.

Rules & Gameplay
Baseball requires two teams and nine players on each side to play each team has to play offence and defence. In baseball offensive means batting or hitting and defence represents fielding or pitching both teams has double turns one at batting and one at fielding, that each team constitutes an innings the baseball game is consist of nine innings. One team customarily the visiting team batting in the start or the first half of every innings. the opponent or the other hand team colostomy the home team they bat at the end or the second half of each innings.
The main theme of the game is to score more point or runs than the opponent team to win the game. the team on the batting side has to give points or score by running through four bases set of at the corner of square shaped called baseball diamond. The batsman has to play on a corner called home plate and for making points or runs he has to run towards the bases in clock wise direction to first, second and third base and after that back to home plate, here the opponent team which is on opposite side has to stop the batsman from scoring runs and make him out by doing this the opposite players has been removed from the offensive action until their turn in their team's batting order comes up again. the teams have to switch their roles for the remaining half innings if three outs are recorded in a innings there is also an extra innings which can be played only if the score of the game is tied after nine innings. The extra innings has to be played to resolve the winning team.
Baseball in played on a ground whose primary boundaries the four line extend forward from home plate at 45 degree angles. The area of 90 degree within the four lines is referred to as fair territory the 220 degree area outside them is foul territory. That part of the ground which is enclosed by the bases and several yards beyond them is known as the infield and the area which is further beyond the infield known as the outfield. In the middle of the infield is a raised pitcher's mound with a rectangular rubber plate (the rubber) at its centre. The outer boundary of the out field is typically demarcated by a raised fence, which may be of any material and height.
Neutral grounds between the home surface and the outer surface is the main area of playing baseball the "foul Territory" also consists of quite a few important events.
