Alfonso ball is played by two nearly equal teams of any number per team. The hitting teams starts behind one endline of the basketball court. A player pitches the soft foam ball underhanded to a batter who uses a tennis racquet. The batter stands under the goal. There are no foul balls. On the hit the batter must run to the other end of the gym behind the far baseline. Anyone else on the batting team may also run to the far side. Each runner may choose to stay or run back home. A run is scored each time a player safely returns home. A batter is out if a fly ball is caught. Any runner is out if the fielding teams tags or hits the runner shoulder or lower with the foam ball. 3 outs and teams switch. With large classes everyone should run at least every third batter when their team is up to bat.
