  • On a baseball diamond, set up a defensive allignment consisting of a back catcher, a pitcher, players on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, a shortstop playing between 2nd and 3rd, and 4 out fielders.

  • Line up the offensive team behind the back-stop in the order they will be hitting. The batting order is maintained throughout the game.


  • Explain to the players that the pitcher must ask the batter where he likes the ball and attempt to pitch the ball where the batter likes it.

  • A batter gets 3 actual strikes (no called strikes).

  • No stealing bases (that would not be very gentlemanly).
