Senior Bean Bag Baseball

Senior Bean Bag Baseball

This is a hoot! Want to watch seniors play an inspired and energetic game of bean bag baseball?

Here are the rules: Players stand 15 feet away from a specially designed board that is propped up on the ground. The board has nine circular holes, two marked with “1”, two with “2”, two with “Out”, one with “3”, and one with “HR”. There is also one square hole marked “Foul.” Chairs are set up as bases, and a “batter” gets three attempts to toss a bean bag into one of the holes on the board, taking the corresponding “base”. Strikes occur if the “batter” misses the board on a throw, tosses the bean bag into the “Foul” hole, or steps over the throwing line.
