    • One team is up to bat.

    • The other team is in the field.

The third team waits to trade with a team that has three outs.

-Instructions:

  •  Rules are like regular T-ball, except:

  • Bases are closer.

  • The ball is larger.

  • Play stops when the ball is placed on the other team’s tee (on second base) or when there is an out:

  • A fly ball caught in the air.

  • A runner is tagged off base.

  • A base is touched ahead of runners in a force play.

  • Runners who are on a base can play defense but must stay with one foot always tagging their base.

  • Just count runs scored; no need to count outs.

  •  

  • Variation:

  • If there are a lot of players use Caterpillar Diamond Dash, in which case another player (or two) runs along with the batter to the bases.
