meaning of the sentence

Hello everyone,

I can’t understand this sentence well, it’s about baseball: A player who goes around all the bases scores a run for his team.

What does “bases” mean? “scores a run?”

Could you tell me this sentence in a simpler way, please?[/i][/b]

“bases” are markers on the field of play. See the diagram at

The players try to run all the way around the bases, returning to the start. When they do so, they “score a run”, which means that one point (run) is added to the team’s score.

Thank you very much,Dozy, for such clear explanation.:slight_smile:
