Kick Ball

An inflated ball about the size of a basketball is best for this game,

but a bean bag can be used. The group is divided into two teams. One

team is at the bat and the other in the field, arranged as in regular

baseball with the exception that there is a short stop on both sides of

the pitcher. The home base is marked upon the ground in form of a

rectangle 4 feet long and 3 feet wide. The ball is tossed with an

underhand toss, so that it passes over the base not higher than the

level of the knee of the batter. Three strikes and four balls are

allowed, as in baseball. Three men out retire a side. The principal

difference is that the batter kicks the ball and may be put out by

being hit with the ball when running between bases.
