Game Objective

The object of the game is to time running from one base to the other without being tagged by the ball.

Game Rules

Set up two bases about twenty to thirty yards apart on the ground that multiple people can stand on. You can use a baseball plate, draw a circle with chalk, paper plate or rug, anything that works as a base. One base will be home base.

Pick two people to be the ends. Each end stands near, but not on, one of the bases. During the game, they will throw a tennis ball back and forth to each other, trying to get the runners to run.

The rest of the people are the runners.

To begin the game, the runners stand in the middle of the playing area. The ends throw the ball back and forth three times, then play begins and the runners run to a base.

The runners run back and forth between the bases while the ends try to hit them with the ball. When they are touching the base, the end cannot hit them. They can stay on a base as long as they want but receive a point every time they touch "home" base.

When a runner is hit or tagged by the ball off a base, they get an out. After three outs, the runner becomes an end. The end that records the final out becomes a runner.

The game continues until everyone is too tired to run anymore. The fun of the game is getting the ends to throw a wide pitch or for a runner to "steal" the base.
