Tennis Baseball

Set up a typical baseball 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. This game is played following the softball & baseball rules; with the exception that pitcher allows the ball to bounce once before it reaches the batter. The batter hits with a racquet rather than a bat. You are the pitcher and control the play of the game. Play starts when you throw the ball underhand towards home plate. Play stops when the ball is returned back to you. Teams switch sides when either: after the full team batting rotation, a time limit is reached, 3 outs are achieved.
