    practice +ving

    1. John parctices baseball every day.
    2. John practices playing baseball every day.

    Q1: Is the #1 sentence right?
    Q2: Any difference between these two?

    ---------------------------------------------------

    3. John practices hitting.
    4. John practices hitting the ball.

    Q3. What's the difference between these two?

    Thank you

    Re: practice +ving

    1 & 2 are equally correct.
    As baseball is a game then it is played, and so it is not necessary to mention 'playing'.

    In 3, what is John hitting?
    In 4, that is obvious.
