Batball is one of the fun group games for kids and playground games.

This fun activity is played along the lines of baseball but there are only two bases and no pitcher.

Before You Begin

8 or more players
Ages 7 and up
Need: soft kick ball, chalk or sticks


Make or mark two bases about 35 feet apart, diagonally. One is home plate the other 1st base. It's placed where it normally is (to the right of home).

Divide the kids into 2 teams with an equal amount of players. One team spreads out behind 1st base.

The other team lines up behind home base and will bat.

Player # 1 who's batting, goes onto home base, throws the ball in the air and hits it into the playing area with his palm or fist.

Batters only have one chance at hitting the ball.

When the batter hits the ball, he runs to the other base and then tries to make it back to home base.

If a field player catches the ball, the batter is out. If the ball is picked off the ground, the fielding player needs to tag the batting player.

She can tag him herself or throw it to a player who is closer to the batter so he can tag the batter.

Tagging the batter must be at waist level or below. The ball is not thrown at the batter.

If the batter is tagged, he's out. If he makes it to 1st base and back home, his team gets one point.

That team continues to bats until it makes 3 outs. Then the teams switch positions.


The team with the highest number of points after 4 or 5 rounds is the winner.

Good luck and have fun playing with all of your friends!
