Baseball Party Games - Pleasing the Crowd

Baseball Party Games - Pleasing the Crowd
By guest author: Gail Leino

If your son or daughter is a mad-keen fan, it can be great fun to plan their next birthday party around the theme of baseball. Here are a few ideas:

"Baseball Pinata" Baseball Party Game

When it comes to baseball party games, it's hard to go past a good old piñata. A week or so prior to the party, prepare the piñata by covering a large balloon with glue-soaked newspaper strips layer by layer, leaving a small hole near the neck of the balloon. To keep the inner layers from staying wet, let the piñata dry out every 5 layers. Try and make the shape as close to a circle as possible. Fill the piñata with candy through the hole, cover the hole and paint the dried piñata to resemble a baseball. Guests take turns to put on a blindfold (which can be left off for younger players) and try to break open the piñata with the baseball bat. This baseball party game ends when everyone gets showered with candy.

"Pitcher, Pitcher, Batter" Baseball Party Game

When you're working with a theme like baseball, party games can easily be adapted to suit. This baseball party game, a variant of "Duck, Duck, Goose", is one example. All the children except the birthday boy/girl sit in a circle. The birthday boy/girl walks around the outside of the circle, tapping each person on the head and saying "batter". When they say "pitcher" instead of "batter", the child who was just tapped must jump up, chasing the other child around the circle. The birthday boy/girl has to run all the way around the circle to the empty spot without being tagged; if they make it back, they stay in spot and the person they tapped becomes the 'tapper'. If they get tagged, they must sit in the centre of the circle for the remainder of this baseball party game.
