    Though the main selling points of baseball are the individual stars and the marquee one-on-one matchups between between pitcher and batter, it's still a team sport that requires individuals working together for the greater good.

    For example, it takes at least two, often times three players to turn to a double play. It takes two players paying attention and working in sync to execute a hit-and-run or suicide squeeze. And if we move the focus away from the field, sometimes it even takes two — as in two fans — to corral a foul ball.
