  • Baseball players of La Paz National High School in Iloilo City practice at the La Paz district public plaza. Baseball may not be as popular as basketball in the country, but it has its own enthusiasts.

A run is scored when a player advances around the bases and returns to home plate. JOSELITO VILLASIS/PN
