Bats, Balls, Markers
The object is for the batting team to strike a pitched ball out into the playing area and then run
to the back base.
HOW IT WORKS
Setup playing area as shown. Place a line at each end as the ‘crossing lines’ .
Divide group into batting teams and fielding teams.
The aim is for the batting team to strike a pitched ball out into the playing area and then run to the back base.
Fielding team aims to get the batter out by: Catching the ball, tagging the batter when
running to the back base, throwing (underarm)and hitting batter below the knees when
running to the back base.
Fielding team can also tag and throw at a runner heading back to the home base.
Batting team scores a run if they successfully make it back to the batting base.
Once a runner crosses the ‘crossing line’ they cannot head back to the back base and
must run to the home base.
Switch after each person in the batting team has had a bat.
