WFMW: Family Baseball (or Softball)

There are 4 of us in our family, so we don’t have quite enough players to play a full-fledge baseball game. We’ve come up with a very easy way to play baseball and make it fair for the kids. Here are The Green 3 baseball rules! (or softball, of course)

  • The kids are always up to bat and the parents are always in the outfield.
  • Each time they score a run, they get a point. Each time we get them out, we get a point.
  • If one of them is on first base and then gets hit to second base, which means they are both on base now, the person on second base gives up his position and goes up to bat. They cannot count that as a “ghost runner”.
  • No stealing.
  • Once the pitcher has the ball, they cannot advance to another base.

We keep track of our "record" all summer long an crown a champion team at the end of the season. DH and I really do try our hardest but we rarely win.

Play Ball!!
