Fat Bat (Wiffle Ball w/ a wading pool)


A fun, outdoor version of Wiffle Ball. Home plate can be anything, but first base (the only base) is a kid's wading pool filled with water. The player steps up to bat and after they get a hit, they run and jump in the pool.

The defense can throw the wiffle ball at the runner to get them out, but after they jump in the pool, they're safe. The next player bats and does the same thing, only the player that is already in the pool doesn't have to run, but once they leave the pool to try and make it back home, they cannot return to base (the pool).

This gets fun when there are several people in the pool at the same time! We use the fat wiffle ball bat and a ball that doesn't hurt when students get "pegged."

To whip this game up even more. Get a huge kick ball (or exercise ball) and put 3 blow up kiddies pools as bases and a slip in slide with a little built in pool at the end for home plate! My teens love this! They love to slide into home base! There are NO infielders. Only outfielders. and One pitcher. You can throw the ball to hit the runners out before they touch the base. They love to dive into (belly flop) the pool bases.

um...be super-careful with this one. This is the EXACT way I broke my leg...and not some normal break, but a spiral break. YIKES!
