Baseball Field

                                                              Softball Field

As you can see there is a difference between the two fields.  Not much of a difference but there defiantly is one. These two field are set up in the same way. They all include a pitching mound, and four bases including home plate.


Now that we know one of the major differences in the sports lets talk about the smaller details that make the sports different.

  • baseballs are smaller than softballs
  • softball is usually a girls sport and baseball is usually a boys sport
  • baseball uses fast pitch and softball uses slow pitch
  • different size bats and gloves

Also if you ever looking to find a good bat got check out Just Bat Reviews

These are some of the simplest but still biggest parts of the difference in the sport. Now as for the similarities its more the rules of that game that is the same. Like the 3 strikes your out rule and the fact that you can run through first base without getting out. But if you run through the base on second or third or you can be tagged and get out or the base can be tagged and you can get a force out.

For those who don’t know what a force out is it is when you are on first, second, or third base and someone hits the ball if someone is on the base behind you before the ball is hit and they have to run because its the same for them you have to run you have no option. At that point they don’t have to tag you to get you out they just have to tag the base. This occurs in both sports.

So how different are they really?

These to sports to say the least are similar in many ways but mostly it is the rules and how the field they play on is set up that is what is really similar. Although the fields are different they are actually the same in some ways too. Continuing with the differences though how much do they really have in common? What makes the so different from each other? Going more in depth about the sports you realize that isn’t really a big difference in the two sports.

Both sports have the same objective. Only girls are playing one and boys are playing the other. So yes some people will say they are similar and some will say they are different. No matter what though your pretty much watching the same game with different players and a different field. Even though most people won’t even notice the difference between the two fields.


There will always be similarities and differences between sports and they may or may not be noticeable by the people who are watching. All anyone cares about is the game that is being played. Plus most of the fans are the parents and they are paying attention to whether or not there kid is doing this or that. This doesn’t have to be a complicated thing.

Now that everything is said and done the two sports really aren’t different. They have the same logistics and are almost the exact same game. There are only a few things that can be compared about the sports. Which shows that they may have more in common than not in common. So why try and compare when you get down to the basics softball and baseball go hand in hand,they fit like a glove. Baseball and softball are probably two of the most similar sports you will find. Considering they both came from the same idea, they really are like the same sport.

Warm Ups

Before you play the game each player should run through some stretch routine. Some of the practical routines are:


You stand by a wall and lift you leg behind you. With one hand you steady yourself against the wall and the other holds your hand in place. For it to stretch you have to gently pull your leg upwards.

-Lower Back:

To stretch your lower back you need to lay down and pull your knees towards your chest. While doing that you want keep your shoulders and head on the ground.

There are many other stretches you can do as well.

Team Positions

The soccer team all works to score goals and prevent other teams from scoring. Each team consists of 11 players. 1 goalkeeper and 10 field players.


They are the only player allowed to use their hands. They block goals and stay in the penalty area of the field.


They are playing in front of the goalkeeper. They are responsible to stop the other team from scoring. As the Defender you play on the left and right of the field and stay on the same side of the field for the majority of the game. The central defenders are in the middle of the field and typically cover the opposition’s leading goal scorer.


They are the link between the defense and attack. When your a midfielder you have to be the most physically fit players on the field. They will be running most of the games. The need to be prepared to go on the other teams side of the field.


Their main job of a forward is to score goals or help create them for team mates. The center forward should be the leading goal scorer.

-The Field

Image result for soccer field

The soccer field looks likes a giant rectangle that is at least 100 yards long and 5o yards wide. It has a goal in the center at both ends  of the field. On the field there is marks including those for the penalty area and spot, the center spot for kick-offs, and the corners for corner kicks.

The field is divided in half by a halfway line, which joins the middle of the both touchlines. In the center of the halfway line there is the center spot. The center spot is a round circle with a 10 yard radius.

The field is made of grass or it can be made of manmade materials like Astro Turf. The color must always be green.



Dribbling is the most basic skill of soccer. It is the ability to carry the ball past other players well being in control of the ball. If the player can’t dribble the ball, then he is unable to play. Well dribbling make sure not to look down and use both feet.

-Changing Directions

Before you try to change directions you want to make sure you have enough space to turn with the ball. You will want to turn from you opponent and use the outside or inside of your foot. What side of your foot you use depends on where the pass is coming from and where the players around you are at.

How to Coach Soccer

Though the size of the field can vary, the markings remain pretty much the same.

-Support the players

You want to be specific when you praise the players. You need to display good sportsmanship for you team to learn from. When you coach soccer in always need to remember that kids make mistakes its part of their learning process.

-Before Game Talk

When you give a talk before the game you need to remember to be brief, speak calmly, conduct the talk away from any other distractions, avoid saying phrases that may provoke pressure or stress such at “let score 3 goals today.”

NBA 2K18


Gaming is very popular all throughout the world. Some popular games include Mine craft, Fornite, etc. However, on September 19th, 2017 NBA 2K18 was released to the public. However, those who had pre-ordered the game received it 4 days earlier on September 14th. People all over the world rushed to the stores to make sure they were one of the first to own this game. Now it is played daily by thousands of people all over the world.

Game play

NBA 2K18 is a video game available for Xbox 360/1, Switch, PS4, PS3, and PC. This game allows players to feel as though they are a real life NBA player. The main menu page of the game allows you to pick a number of options such as play now, mycareer, myteam, mygm/myleague, and options.

Play Now

If play now is selected, then the gamer gets to hop right in as if they are one of the current teams/players in the league. Once they select their team, they can choose what jerseys the team wears. They can also choose what team they play against, and the starting lineup. Depending on what teams home and what team is away will choose what arena the game is played at. They then play through 4 quarters of the time period of their choice. They also have the option to call time out, run plays, and sub players in/out. The gamer can even choose to be a team from a certain year. For example, they can choose the 1998-1999 Utah Jazz team. Also, the gamer can save and quit the game they are currently in and come back to it later.

In the picture above, the gamer has chosen to play as the Dallas Mavericks with the opponent being the Golden State Warriors.


If the gamer chooses the option titled “mycareer” then they get to create their own player. They can choose his height, skin color, hair color, hair style, tattoo’s, and any feature one can think of. They can also choose what position they play (point guard, small guard/shooting guard, small/power forward, and center.) Once they create their player they start playing in a game where NBA general managers are supposedly watching them. After they play a couple of those games, they go to the NBA draft. During they draft they watch the timer count down until each player is drafted. Eventually they are drafted by some team. Once drafted, they go through one or two press conferences where they are asked questions and they can choose between a couple different answers. Then they can start playing with their new team. As a rookie, the gamer will not get to play the whole game. However, they will have the option to flash forward to their next appearance


In this option, they can also buy their play shoes, cut their hair, run through drills, and go to popular player training camps ( Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone, etc.)


If the gamer clicks on this option, then they get to put together their very own dream team. They start by selecting the coach they want for their team. They then “draft” all the players they want to have on their team. It’s almost as though the gamer is acting as a general manager in this option.  Once the gamer has their team figured out, they will start playing against other drafted teams. The gamer competes with their team in a best-of-seven elimination-style competitions. After each round, they can redraft their team, and they can try to get the players back that they had on their team before.


If the gamer chooses this option, then they can now control one or all of the teams in the NBA. You get to choose how long games are, how many games are in a season, what teams play each other, and many other things. The options in this selection are limitless. Gamer’s tend to enjoy this option a lot and spend much of their playing time under this option.


If the gamer clicks on “options” then they can control the volume, music, graphics of the screen, and many more settings.


NBA 2K18 is a game that is consistently played by hundreds of kids and teenagers and even adults/parents get it on the fun at times. It gives kids the chance to experience a little bit of their dreams by showing them what life in the NBA is like.

Basketball Hall of Fame History

The purpose of a hall of fame is to honor a player, coach, or other contributors to the sport who have made a difference.  At the beginning of the hall of fame all it was was a small building on the campus of Springfield College.  Since then it has expanded to the great large building that it is today.  The game of basketball was first played on December 21 of 1891 as the years went on it changed and developed into the wonderful game that so many love.  On February 17, 1968 the Hall of Fame was officially opened to the public. At the time of the opening the NBA was going through a very important time in this time. History was being made.

At the Beginning

The grand opening of the hall was so spectacular people started planning it 30 years in advance. They first started making plans when the United States beat Canada in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.  However,the road wasn’t always easy for the hall of fame. Throughout the years it has been known as the birth place of basketball, and fans of basketball flocked from everywhere to visit it. When America entered World War Two it stopped the ideas for an expansion for some time. Eventually however  the Basketball Hall of Fame rose back to the top and is the house of so many basketball legends.

Founder of the Game

The full name of the hall is the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame named after the man who invented the game of basketball Dr. Naismith.  Dr. Naismith game up with the idea over a century ago and this idea has completely changed history. The Naismith Memorial couldn’t have a better name. Naming the building that celebrates so many great contributors to basketball after the founder of basketball himself couldn’t be better.

Top Famous Inductees

When someone is inducted into  the hall of fame they are put in with a class. Over the years there have been many classes with some of the biggest basketball contributors. Here are 6 of the most popular induction classes.


1987: Walt Fraizer, Pete Maravich, and Rick Barry

1980: Jerry Lucas, Jerry West, and Oscar Robertson

2002: Magic Johnson, Lute Olson, Larry Brown, Kay Yow, Drazen Petrovic, and the Harlem Globetrotters

2008: Hakeem Olajuwon, Patrick Ewing, Pat Riley, Adrian Dantley, and Dick Vitale

2009: Micheal Jordan, John Stockton, Jerry Sloan, David Robinson, and C. Vivian Stringer

2016: Shaquille O’Neal, Yoa Ming, Allen Iverson, Sheryl Swoopes, Tom Izzo, Jerry Reinsford

All of these players, teams, coaches, or contributors listed have done a great deal in influencing basketball history.

How does someone get in the Hall of Fame

Everyone eligible of being inducted like players, coaches, referees, and other contributors has different requirement they have to meet.


In order to be inducted a player must stay retired for four whole seasons. If they choose to come out of retirement for even a short amount of time they will have to start the process over again once becoming retired again.


Just like a player a coach needs to have been retired for four seasons. However there is another options if the coach has not yet retired. If they have coached a high school or collage team for at least 25 years than they may be considered for induction on their 26th year of coaching.


Referees need to be retired for four seasons as well. They also would have to have been a ref actively  for 25 years or more.


Contributors are eligible of induction if they  have generous contribution to basketball. Weather the contribution is generous enough to be inducted is up to the Hall of Fame induction committee.

Best Basketball Shoes of 2017 For You

Best Basketball Shoes of 2017 For You

Basketball shoes have progressed a lot since basketball was first a sport.  There are a lot of shoe brands that sell basketball shoes and sponsor players to where their shoes and create their own shoe if they’re big.  There are many different factories that make and design them, but Nike, Adidas, Under Armor and Jordan.  There are also two styles of basketball shoes. One being for basketball, and the other for fashion, style, or just if you want to look cool.  That’s not it though, there are three different types of actual basketball shoes; below ankle, to the ankle, and above the ankle. It all depends on what position you play, height, weight, and what feels good on your foot and ankle.

                                                                                                                                                            Basketball Shoe Brands 2017

2017 basketball shoes are all good, but different brands making different kinds of shoes and are very different when you wear the shoe.  If you’re looking for a fashion showcase shoe, Nike is the way to go. If you’re looking for a shoe that looks good in and out of a game and will last you a long time, Adidas is your best bet.  Under Armor has a lot of shoes that kids in elementary will like, and Jordan’s are usually for fashion and looking nice kind of shoes, but also have a variety of normal basketball shoes. The two best brands for basketball shoes are Adidas and Nike because they have more shoes, a better variety, and a lot of different looking shoes.

                                                                                                                                       Positions and Basketball Shoes 2017

Basketball shoes are partly based on what position you play and how you play. The five positions are; Point Guard, Shooting Guard, Small Forward, Power Forward, and Center. Point Guards, Shooting Guards, and some Small Forwards usually wear below the ankle basketball shoes. And other Small Forwards and Power Forwards wear to the ankle shoes, and centers wear above the ankle shoes.  Another reason to think about what basketball shoe you need is your height and weight.  If you’re  tall and medium, you want above the ankle shoes so your feet and ankles have more support. If you’re average and more built you want to the ankle shoes so your feet and ankles have room to move but still have support. And if you’re short and skinny you want low shoes so your ankles are free and can move easily.

                        NBA Players Shoes

A lot of well known basketball players create their own shoes. These are the shoes that everyone wants. Big Brands pay these players to sponsor their shoe and make money.  Nike has the most players, then Adidas, and finally Under Armor.  Nike sponsors Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and others.  Adidas sponsors Damian Lillard, James Harden, Derrick Rose, and more.  Under Armor sponsors one player which is Steph Curry.  These players shoes are sold a lot and are the biggest shoes.  Everyone wants these shoes so go get yourself a pair.

                       Team Colors

If you’re looking for basketball shoes to play on a team with, you want them to match your uniform and also the way you play. You want to get the secondary color of your jersey so the colors are even. If your uniform is a solid color, pick a color that’s not too flashy.  Also, get colors that your team mates are also getting so you all look organized and ready to play.  Your shoes also have to match other apparel if you wear compression pants or an arm sleeve. These are all important to improve your game play and game style.

                    Playing With a New Shoe

Playing with new shoes can be hard at first because you need to break them in then they’ll be good.  If you get a new shoe you need to make it last and play your best.  The type of basketball shoe you buy, you need to play the way the shoe feels on your foot, not the way you play. When you play with a new shoe you feel like you’re the best out there, so play like it.  Even if you aren’t the best, play like you mean it and practice like you mean it and you could be.  Shoes are one of the most important things for basketball, so choose wisely.

Time and Effort

There are many soccer players that are super good at soccer because they have taken the time and effort to practice each and everyday. The best teams are the ones that practice a lot. When you practice it needs to be meaningful practice not just something you are doing because someone said to.
