-Rules For Elementary
The rules for kickball
are closely related to those of baseball. The main difference is
that kickball involves a big
rubber ball .
is about the size of a basketball.
Kickball is played
on a field with 4 bases arranged on the corners of a diamond-shaped "infield".
However, since the game is played mostly by grade school kids in low-budget
districts, the "bases" are reduced to "this patch of rocks", "this smashed
tin can", or "this cool shaped stick". If you are a more privileged
player, you may get "yellow spray - painted bases on black top," or "orange
rubber throw - down bases." Player positions are also similar to
those of baseball. There is an "infield" and an "outfield."
The infield contains the positions that involve the bases, while the outfield
is mainly designated to catching or retrieving the ball when it is kicked
out of the infield. Actual playing positions vary depending on the
number of kids that are actually playing. If there are only
a few children playing, the positions are usually spread out, but if there
are a good number of players, kids will position themselves wherever there
is space ( and no cooties ).
Game play goes as follows:
is rolled towards home plate, and the player which is up ( kicking ), tries
to kick the
If the ball
is caught in the air, the kicker is out. A player is also out if
is thrown at them, and hits them while they are not touching a base.
If a thrown ball
misses them, they may only run to the next base, which is known on the
kickball field as the "one base on an overthrow" rule. Also similar
to baseball, if the
is thrown to the first base man, and it is caught by the first base man
while he/she/it is touching first base, the player running to first base
is out. This is known as a "forced out" in that the runner was forced
to run to that base. A "forced out" can occur on any base that a
runner is forced to run to.
a team gets 3 outs, the teams switch sides. A team gets one point
for having a runner make it all the way around the bases and back to home

into the street or onto the roof. At the end of the game, the team
with the most points wins. However, if a team loses the
by kicking it one the roof etc., that team automatically loses. Also,
the kid that did it becomes instantly unpopular.
