WALK & RUN 8.11.18
WATER-BALLOON BASEBALL Including Little Rays 1K, Kids Triathlon,
and post-race family fun fest.
SUPPLIES: small water balloons, baseball bat

Think of this game as a wetter alternative to Little League batting practice. You’ll need a pitch-
er and a batter, with the batter aiming to smash as many water-balloon pitches as possible.
The batter gets a point for each balloon hit, along with a small shower if the balloon explodes
on impact. Batters and pitchers can switch every three “strikes” and keep score along the way.

Tips: The balloons don’t always burst on impact. For an extra challenge, you can assign addi-
tional points to “home run” balloons that explode right away.
