how do you say "hit a single" in baseball?


I'm trying to do a project where we show and describe three scenes from a ball game, and my game of choice was baseball. The only problem is, I don't know all of the vocabulary, and using a different scene won't go with the real game.

A lot of the words in baseball are the same in English and in Spanish.

To hit a single is: batear un sencillo or bateo un hit. a double un doblete, a triple un triple, a home run un quadrangular and also home run.

Pitcher is lanzador, catcher is receptor, Primera base, segunda base, tercera base, home.

Jardinero Izquierdo, Jardinero central, jardinero derecho --- left, centre and right field players.

El guante, la pelota, la mascota (catcher's mitt), mascotín (first baseman's glove), el bate.
