Crazy Softball

Set up the field with bases. Divide students into two teams. The fielding team gets distributed in their positions; everyone is in the field, even if you need to have more than 9 in the field. Give the batting team a batting order and line them up in a safe area to the side of the field. You are the pitcher (if no tee is available) with a bucket of balls next to your feet. Pitch the ball to the batter. After the batter hits the ball, s/he automatically runs the bases, without stopping at any one base. There are no fouls in this game. After rounding the bases, the runner returns to the end of the line. The fielding team gets the ball back to the pitcher as quickly as they can, passing the ball in through teammates. If the ball gets back to the pitcher before they score they are out. If they score first they get a run. Teams switch sides after everyone has had one chance to hit the ball and run bases. After everyone has had a hit, you can switch after 5 minutes.
