Goal:

The Batting Team continues at bat until every player has been “up”, then they become Outfielders.

How to play:

Set up a baseball diamond (3 bases and 1 home plate).Divide the players into 2 teams: the Batters and Outfielders.

The Batters line up at home plate. The first Batter is “up” and kicks or throws the ball from home plate into the field. He then travels around the bases, followed by his team while the Outfielders move to get the ball. The Outfielder, who gets the ball, stops and holds the ball over his head while his team-mates line up behind him. The ball is passed over the head of 1 player and under the legs of the next. When the ball reaches the end of the line, the Outfielders quickly sit down and yell, “Stop!”

When the Batters hear, “Stop!” they must stop and count their score. They score 1 point for each player who crosses home plate.

The Batting Team continues at bat until every player has been “up”, then they become Outfielders.
