Quickly set up 6 colorful fields for nonstop, derby-style baseball fun! Students will love the batting and fielding practice they get, and teachers will love the level of activity everyone gets. Smaller teams and fields create an inclusive environment and keep activity levels high. Students will see more at bats and fielding opportunities than in a traditional game of baseball!
Quick setup and simplified rules get everyone moving—and stay moving— in a matter of minutes! To play, set up six fields, 1 in each Rainbow® color, with a home plate and 2 cones (used to designated bases). Divide the class into 12 teams of 3 or more players; 2 teams are assigned to each field. Determined batting and fielding teams, then position fielders around the 2 cones.
At the signal, players on the batting team take turns at bat. Batters are allowed 2 swings. If they successfully hit the ball off the tee, they run to first, then second base (cones) and back home before being tagged or thrown out. Traditional baseball rules apply. After 3 outs, teams quickly change places and now the fielding team is up at bat.
Lasting, Versatile Equipment
Using cones instead of bases help students identify the destination quickly because they stand out in the grass. The foam bats and balls are safer and less intimidating than standard baseball gear. All equipment is available in Rainbow colors, allowing teachers to set up fields designated by color. When the last run scores, store your set in the convenient mesh duffel bag to keep it organized and easy to move to and from storage.
