Anyone watch this stuff? Interesting game... you can throw the ball at runner and if you hit them they are out. roflmao thumb The ball does amazing things in pitchers hand. How batters can even hit it is impressive. Seems like popularity is booming with start of 2021 season.

During college, we played whiffle ball for hours on end. Great way to spend some time. These folks take it to a different level.

My kids travel baseball team plays it in the hotel parking lots every weekend we have a tournament. It always starts off friendly but by the end of the night they have to be restrained like rabid dogs.

Man, we used to play wiffleball all the time back in the late 50s when I was a kid. We had a "league" (each team was one kid) of kids in our neighborhood and played daily in various back yards. We weren't nearly this organized but if you could hit the ball over the fence it was a HR and that was the only way to score. Throwing and hitting that ball were really a challenge.

Yes. We played it on the beach, which added a totally different element. We werenโ€™t quite as good as those guys, but a few of us were decent at pitching. I had three or four pitches. A buddy had five. There were two fights as a result of wiffle ball, but usually it was just very competitive.

I miss it a lot, but Iโ€™m pretty sure I need Tommy John surgery as a result.

Brings back great memories, our ballparks which was backyards had such unique ground rules and rulings according to the layout of the yard, we would play until plastic ball would split in half

In the version of the game we played, you got someone out by throwing the ball at them. If you hit them before they made it to a base they were out. If we lacked the required number of people to field a team, we had ghost runners. There was also the situation where someone would get stranded on base, so the pitching team, would have to throw the ball into the air until the base runner thought the ball went high enough into the air to advance to the next base. Of course, the person throwing the ball into the air would have to catch the ball and try to hit the base runner before they made it to the next base. This resulted in either an out of you hit the guy, or if you missed, the runner could keep running while you ran to get the ball.

What great fun we had.
