Baseball is a complex game, but many of us understand it well enough to play. But how many of us ever learned to actively interpret the rule book? And how many of us can say that we’ve mastered all those rules? 

The good news is you don’t need to be an umpire to get all the rules right. Baseball Rules Explorer, found in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, by Umpire's Media puts the ruleset in your hands.
