Baseball is a bat and ball game between two teams on a diamond shaped pitch. The batting team attempts to score runs by hitting a ball thrown by the pitcher with a bat swung by the batter, who then runs anti clockwise around a series of four bases. The fielding team tries to prevent runs by getting batters out in any of several ways. The teams switch between batting and fielding whenever the fielding team gets three batters out.
Baseball evolved from older bat-and-ball games and was brought by immigrants to America where it's now one of the most popular sports to watch and play. It is the most democratic of games - anyone can play, and every player is involved in the game at all times. There's no clock; a team can't win without getting the last batter out. Baseball is a team sport but every single pitch is a one-on-one competition between the pitcher and the batter.
