    When I was about 5 years old, my dad talked to me about baseball. There was when I started to learn many things about baseball. Now I’m going to tell you something like where did the baseball come from, rules, field, equipment and any thing more important.

    Baseball come especially from the United States, baseball developed from earliest folk games. Americans play baseball in different way, it was called town ball. Then a person began to call it in different name like goal ball, round ball, catch ball and many others, and then the people began to modify the way to play and now its called baseball.

    Baseball has a especial way to play. Two teams with 9 players each team. You can’t use the feet for kick the ball. When the batter hit the ball, she or he has to run; the player must touch all the bases and the home plate to score a run.

    Baseball field is formed by many things, the shape is a little confused, it’s like two sides of a square and other side like a circle, and it has three bases and a home plate. 90 ft. between bases, pitching mound 18 ft. diameter circle, and pitching rubber to home plate about 60 ft. also it has two coach’s box.

    To play baseball players need a lot of equipment, for example the ball that is hit, caught and thrown. Baseball bat is like a big stick used to hit the ball baseball glove worn on hand by team on defense, and helmet worn by the batter.

    I think baseball is a very good sport because when I was a little boy I enjoyed too much playing baseball. Now I want to send this message to other people to motive to play baseball.

    Badminton is a best simple sport ever. Badminton such as tennis but it easier than tennis. We don’t need much energy when we play. It is a reason that many girls play badminton and me too. I was play badminton when I was 10 years old. Badminton is one of my favorites sport, and I play with my family most of time.
    Badminton’s roots are in 5th century B.C China. It evolved from a game of kicking a small feathered object, a shuttlecock. British officials in India learned the game, known as Poona, and took it to England. It was played at badminton, Gloucestershire, country home of the Duke of Beaufort in 1973. From here, the game took its English name. Beginning in 1992, badminton became a medal sport in the summer Olympic Games.
    Equipment of badminton is racquet and bird. Racquet of badminton use to hit the bird. It shaped like a tennis racquet and has string but it weigh much less. The racquet can be made of various materials. It should have crossed strings and a flat hitting surface, and has a maximum length of 26 ¾ inches. The shuttlecock (also called the shuttle or birdie) has small ball at the front to give it speed. It contain 14 to 16 feathers or a plastic mesh extending 2 ¾ inches from a cock or synthetic base.
    Here are some basis rules you should know. A rally is won when a shuttle is hit over the net and onto the floor of the opponent’s court. A rally is lost if the shuttle is hit into the net but outside of the opponent’s court. A rally is also lost if the shuttle touches the player’s clothing or body, or if it hit before is cross over the net.
    If the serving side wins a rally it scores a point, and serves again but from the alternate service court. If the receiving side wins the rally, the score remains unchanged and the services pass to the next player in turn. In singles, this is the opponent in double it’s either the partner or if both players have just had a turn of serving, one of the opponents. In men’s singles and double events, 15 points win a game. However, if the score reaches 14-14, the side which first reached 14 can choose either to play to 15, or to set the game to 17 points. The final score will reflect the sum of the points won before setting plus the points gained in setting. Scoring in women’s singles is slightly different. 11 points wins a game and there is the option to set to 13 points at 10-10.
