The game of Wiffleball is a modern recreation of an old-fashioned sport that has been around for over one hundred years. Wiffleball is currently played in more than seventy countries around the world. Although the rules may differ slightly from country to country, the basic rules are nearly identical. Basically, Wiffleball is an old-fashioned game played with a pocket ball made of a soft, flexible material such as foam rubber or synthetic leather. The Wiffleball is usually designed for outdoor or indoor play indoors or out in limited spaces.
Each player in the game is assigned a color and is required to wear a uniform including pants, shirts, socks and shoes. The color of the uniform is based on the nationality of the team wearing it, although sometimes a color can be chosen randomly. Wiffleball is a fast-paced game where two or more teams try to throw the ball into a goal, called “wiffles” or “wiffleballs”. The thrower (called a “erver”) must first bounce the wiffleball off a wall or other obstacle, then into the pocket, which is located about two feet behind the thrower.
The basic rule of Wiffleball is fairly simple.
Each player on each team begins at opposite ends of the court, opposite the direction of play. The players must form a rectangle, with the corners forming the “v” shape. For the purpose of scoring points, wifflers who hit the ball into the hoop are considered to have made at least five passes.
After the initial bounce, each player on each team is allowed to take one shot, called a “Blitzball” once the ball has passed through any obstacle on the field. The objective of the blitzball is for the team on offense to try and score as many goals as possible while preventing the other team from getting the same scores. The offensive team takes turns initiating the ball motion. Typically, there is a short pause before the ball motion is started. Once that motion is initiated, all players are allowed to take a shot, after which the ball is immediately thrown toward the opposing goal.
The “inning” in wiffleball is a play designed to simulate a baseball game. In a regular baseball game, an “inning” is three outs with three innings each consisting of two innings. In comparison, in wiffleball, there are five innings, with no extra innings allowed. This can create an exciting, action-filled game for those interested in either team or both!
Aside from the action that takes place on the field during each game, the wiffle ball itself plays a huge role in the game. Each team uses different types of bats and bases. While the standard metal bats are usually used by most teams, some play using grass or water-based materials. The types of basers that players can choose from include either flags, sliders, and pitching balls.
There are several different styles of pitching that players can choose from as well. Some throw only one type of pitch, while others use two or more. Some toss what is known as “fancy pitches,” which include curves, hooks, and flies. Wiffleball players also use specially made pitching machines that allow them to simulate live pitching. These machines use compressed air to generate the force of the ball as it is thrown, much like a real pitcher would use in real life.
To add excitement to a game of Wiffleball, many people enjoy buying novelty balls and equipment. These items make for great gifts for friends or family members who are big fans of the game. If you know someone who is a fan of Wiffleball, buy them a few novelty balls or other gear that they will love. They might even start playing the sport themselves!
