Considered to be a modified form ofbaseball, this sport is played on a smaller field but with a larger ball. In the field, there is a softball diamond which consists of four bases placed in a square.

After the batting team has 3 outs the players switch and the fielding team now goes to bat. </p><p> Basketball is considered to be the most popular and widely-viewed sport all over the world. This is played on a rectangular court by two teams which consist of five players in each team.

For every ball that goes through the hoop, the team scores two points. </p><p> Hockey is a family of sports in which two teams play against each other while trying to move a ball or a puck into the opponents goal.
