Bat and trap are an English bat and ball club game. It’s usually played in Kent, sometimes in Brighton. In the late twentieth century it also was mostly played on Good Friday at Brighton, the famous park known as The Bat and Ball, which have an adjacent bar known as The Bat and Ball. Other places where it is popular include West Sussex, Norfolk and Hereford.
There are several variations of bat and stoolball, including Texas Hold’em and Kentucky Derby style tournaments. There are many professional and semi-professional teams in England and abroad. In the United States, there are three well-known leagues: Eastern Amateur League, Independent leagues in New York and Florida and World League America. All the leagues have their own distinctive characteristics such as playing rules, style of play and prize money. Some of them are now combined, especially in the United States, so that there are professional and amateur tournaments at every level.
Bat and trap are usually played with four players.
Each player is assigned a specific role, such as the holder or catcher, with the objective of trying to throw his opponent out of the pit. The objective is usually given by the referee, who decides whether a team has achieved “the win” when a certain number of baser balls have been hit onto the batting cage or any other part of the field. Batters are usually allowed to use their bats and one of two designated throwers.
When the bat and ball have been launched, it is the duty of the tosser to move the stools forward, making sure that they hit the floor before any other part of the stools. Kicking is not allowed, but only the throwing of a broomstick. The purpose of this game is to get the ball into the batting cage, but without hitting anyone else’s stools. If the bat reaches the other players’ stools, they are out. The person who throws the last stools is the winner of the game, although the score is not official until someone hits the ground or a cricket ball falls to the ground.
This game is played with a rectangular pit, sometimes called the “pitch”. One end of the rectangular pit is placed on the boundary line between the batters’ boxes; the other end is placed at the opposite end of the pitching diamond. There is usually a ball or other type of object on the playing area. The batsman hides in the “softest part” of the “pit”, which is the part of the batting cage nearest the foul line.
The bat is camouflaged in such a way that it appears to be sleeping, hence the name, “Bat and Trap”. In international tournaments, these are played during the Twenty20 International Cricket Event, where each team is allowed to have two batsmen, with one placed in front and one behind the wicketkeeper. In some cases, a fielding position is also present. Batting conditions may vary depending on the type of tournament being played.
Batters usually try to field the ball as close to the back of the outfield as possible, or as close to the first base as possible. This prevents the batsman from overswinging, which could cause him to hit someone else’s steed. Fielding singles, doubles, triples, or home runs may be scored if the batsman can accomplish this task. If he successfully fields the ball within a yard of the back or first base, he earns a run, regardless of whether he advances to the next stage.
When a batsman tries to field a ball that is hit by another player, the ball will be launched towards the grass mound at the edge of the cricket field. If the player is within a few yards of the back or second base, he can step into the grass and return the ball to the batsman who is standing in the outfield. The runner who returns the ball to the batsman will be declared out, while the other player who attempted to hit the ball will receive a penalty stroke.
