-Setting Up:

  • A baseball diamond—bases 30 yards (26 meters) apart

  • On a baseball diamond, set up a defensive alignment 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 ball. The batting order is maintained throughout the game.

-Instructions:

  • 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).

  • Runners do not need to run--there can be as many runners on a base as a team wishes--however, when all the runners are on base and there is no one to hit, then that half of the innning is over and teams switch from offense to defense...

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

  • A fly ball is any ball caught in the air or off 1 bounce (in the field or in foul territory).

  • 1 inning is 3 outs.

  • The winning team is the one which scores the most runs during 9 innings.
