Wiffle Ball – Very different from Baseball
In the game of WIFFLE Ball, you have no base runners, but rather you score base hits by the distance in which you hit the ball. You can have singles, doubles, triples and home runs. According to the players we spoke with at this event, it’s all about the pitching; if you have a good pitcher, the other team is not going to get any hits.
The pitching backstop features a cutout of the strike zone, which helps take the umpire out of the picture, as if the ball goes through the strike zone, it is a strike.
“We normally have 30 to 50 teams participating, and this is a double elimination event, which means your team has two losses before your out. Overall, it’s a great day for a Great Cause and every penny goes to Madeline Shayla Holloway.” Stated, Roxbury PTL. Brian Feeney.
