Toe Tag Baseball
Each team tries to get the most runs.
-Fundamental Movement Skills:
Four poly spots or hoops to mark the bases.
At least two pool noodles per team.
Set up four bases as in baseball. The closer the bases the less running takes place, the further apart the bases the more running takes place.
Each team lines up beside each other at home base. The team on the right of home base will run counter-clockwise, and the team to the left of home base will run clockwise.
When both teams are ready one runner runs the bases clockwise, and the other team's runner funs the bases counter-clockwise.
When the runners meet they try and tag the other runner's toes with their pool noodle.
Whichever runner tags their opponent's toes, advances and meets the next runner from the opposite team.
Continue till a runner gets to home plate and scores a run.
Then a new two runners play...
