InformationBaseball is one of the most complicated plugins in SchoolRP. It requires a good understanding of the game mechanics, rules, and the ability to work with your team. The following post contains the BASIC(No advanced tricks will be shown) guidance on the Baseball Plugin within SchoolRP.
To enter a game you simply have to walk onto the Waiting Bench and you will be automatically placed onto either the RED or BLUE team(or you could select whichever team you prefer).
Note: Some of the rules and game mechanics may differ from the baseball we experience in real life. However, they should be pretty similar.
Definitions and In-game tutorialBatter: A batter in baseball is a player in the batter's box attempting to hit the ball thrown by a pitcher.
(Tips: When you have the bat in your hand, hold right-click to charge it. When the ball is pitched release your right click for a swing, make sure to swing at the right angle and time)
(Aim above the batter’s head and right-click to throw the ball)
(Tips: GO BIG OR GO HOME! Your timing and aiming angle are really important)
(Tips: Try to aim differently by lowering your body using the SHIFT key, or adjusting your swing time)
Basement/Baseman: The players near the three diamonds. Protecting the first, second, and third base by picking up the ball and tagging the runners.
Game Mechanics & FunctionsBaseball on SRP is a team SPORT that can be played between two teams(Red and Blue team) of 2 to 12 players. Baseball is played on a diamond-shaped playing field. The four corners of the diamond are home plate as well as the first, second, and third base.
(The amount of baseman depends on the number of players in the game)
The objective of baseball is to score more runs than your opponent by hitting a ball as far as you can before running around four bases to complete a run.
Each team has 3 chances of getting their players Dismissed/Out each round, and a round ends when both of the teams used all of their OUTS. The team that scores the most runs after 3 rounds of pitching and batting wins the game.
(Tips: Once you’ve tagged the home base and all other three bases, you will gain ONE point for your team)
Batters/Runners can be Dismissed from a round in TWO ways
Strike out: Occurs when a batter accumulates three strikes during a time at bat, for example, missed swings.
Tag out: When the defensive player with the ball touches the runner with the ball while the runner is not touching a base.
(Tips: Left-click the runner with the ball in order to tag them out)
OutroCongratulations! You've reached the end of this thread, hopefully, you've gained some basic baseball knowledge on how to play it by now. From what I have seen, most players are struggling with batting when they first start playing baseball. However, once you've conquered the hardship of battling, you might find that baseball is a rather interesting game, especially when played with a group of other people. If you wish to learn more tricks(such as air-grab) and team strategies about baseball, feel free to go talk to one of the baseball Members or join them during their practices! Finally, good luck to those who want to make it into the baseball team, remember practice is the key to victory.
