Kickball type ball
How to Play
Basic games are fun, sometimes crazy variations are even more fun. Variations can include handicapping the players or changing the rules (or both).
Here’s a rule change version of kickball that young people enjoy:
1) Instead of running from first to 2nd to 3rd, you must run from 3rd to 2nd and then to 1st.
2) Only flying balls are acceptable; all grounders (kicks below waist level) are out.
3) You do not get an out when you’re flyball is caught.
4) Either play the regular 3 outs per side or set a time limit with no restrictions on out’s.
It takes the students a while to get use to running the bases backwards and remember that when a flyball is call the kicker isn’t out. This is a good Lame Game both to play and watch. Why not invite parents for the fun? For more fun apply these lame rules to other base games such as softball and baseball.
