So I'm on a kickball team, and I've been thinking about throws from outfield.→
When a ball is kicked into the outfield and not caught, usually a relay of cut-off people, with different skill levels in the discipline of throwing big red bouncy balls, ends up slowly and laboriously tossing the ball into the infield only to find that the kicker has already cleared the bases and made it home, or at least to third.
There's nothing in the rules that says the outfielder can't drop the ball and kick it to third, or home, if they can, instead of throwing it.
With a little practice, I bet I can land a big red bouncy ball on a postage stamp in a fraction of the time it takes for five people to pass the ball all the way to the pitcher.
I think this innovation might just change the game of kickball as we know it. My housemate and I will be acquiring a big red bouncy ball and kicking it around in Queensbridge Park to test this revolutionary new technique this week after work.
By Gum, I think I'm onto something!
