To play the game you have to answer questions at particular levels of difficulty to get different types of hits to score runs for your team. If you don’t want to attempt a trivia question, you can click on a chance card and see what happens during your at bat. To keep up with who is on base, students can either set up a baseball diamond in the classroom where each student can move forward from base to base, or the teacher can keep track of the field on a chalkboard. In addition, teams can hit back-to-back homeruns by answering baseball trivia questions. To win the game you have to score more runs than the other team.
Game Board: All you need is a cleared out space in your classroom and a make-believe baseball diamond. You can also keep track by drawing a baseball diamond on a chalkboard to keep track of who is on base where.
