A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF KICKBALL
The World Adult Kickball Association is the preeminent adult kickball organization and the world governing body of kickball and they define Kickball as follows: Kickball is a simple game consisting of two teams, bases, and a big red ball. Played like baseball, the object is to score more runs than the opposing team. In short, games are played with 11 fielders, 5 innings, 2 base coaches, bouncies, no head shots, one base on an overthrow, forced outs, no ghost men, and bunting is allowed so get a good catcher on your team. For the enjoyment of all, proper respect and civility is required of all participants toward one another. Fighting is not allowed or tolerated.
