Active Play For Any Age! (500 BASEBALL VERSION + HIT THE BAT!)

500 can also be played with a baseball bat and whiffle ball!

One player is designated as the hitter to begin. They then hit the whiffle ball towards the other players. If a player catches it in the air, they get 100 points, after one bounce 50 points, and as a grounder 25 points. Play until someone reaches 500 points. They now become the new hitter! Have fun!

Another game you can incorporate into 500 is "Hit the Bat" it can be played with 500, or by itself! Instead of throwing the ball back to the hitter, players attempt to hit the bat on the ground from where they pick up the ball. If they hit it, they become the new hitter! If not, they receive the 25 points from the grounder.
