Let's Play Kickball!

**Location & contact info will be given to all RSVPs at least 24 hours prior to the event.

 

Lets play a game of kickball!  Had so much fun last time, I want to do it again!  The plan is to play 9 innings of kickball, each team with 9 players.  After the game, we'll have a picnic and then cool off/play in the pool!

 

**Please bring a side dish/dessert to share (indicate in the comment section what you plan to bring), Bring your own drink!

 

Kickball Rules (In case you don't know or don't remember!):

Ideally you want to have nine players on your team in order to fill all defensive fielding positions. One pitcher, one catcher, three players to cover each base, three out fielders, and one shortstop to cover the area between second and third base. A Kickball field is made up four bases in a diamond shape. Foul territory is everything outside of the line from home base to first base and home base to third base extending into the outfield. A team scores a run when a player touches all four bases in order and touches home base without getting out. The team with the most runs at the end of a game wins. A Kickball game lasts six innings. An inning is composed of each team coming up to kick once. A team continues to kick until they get three outs.

There are four ways for a player to get out:

Strike Out: If a player kicks and fails to put the ball into play after three good pitches

Fly Out: If a player kicks the ball in the air and it is caught by a defensive player before it hits the ground

Tag Out: If a defensive player tags or throws and hits an offensive player with the ball before they get on base

A Force Out: If a defensive player gets the ball to a base before the offensive player arrives and the offensive player cannot return to the previous base because it is occupied by one of his teammates

    Having some play time will be great! However, I have another commitment in the afternoon and will not be able to take advantage of the picnic and pool. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
