Pin Ball

This game is played with the same rules as basketball, except that in

place of the baskets a 6 foot circle is drawn in the center of each end

of the playing space, and in the center of each circle a short flat end

log about 14 inches long and 3 inches in diameter stands upon its end.

Seven players constitute a team. A pin guard is placed within each

circle, with the pin and he is the only one that is allowed to step

inside the circle. The object of the game is to knock down the

opponent's pin by hitting it with the ball. It is a foul to carry the

ball or to hold an opponent. Where basketball rules are known to the

players, use the same rules for this game. In case of a foul, a 15 foot

line measured from the pin in the circle is used as a free throw line.

In a free throw the guard is not allowed to interfere with the ball

hitting the pin. A stuffed sack can be used in place of a ball in this
