It's time to review for a test! Let's play academic baseball!
How to Play
The class should split into two groups.
The batter is asked by the pitcher to pick the level of difficulty of their question
– single, double, triple or home run.
The pitcher selects and asks a single, double, triple, or home run question.
If the student answers correctly, the appropriate selection is made on the baseball
diamond. For the web version, clicking the appropriate base toggles the base on and off
so a runner appears and disappears, respectively. Other runners advance the same number of bases.
If the question if answered incorrectly, a "flyball" is called, and the question
goes to a player of the team that is "in the field."
After "flyball" is called, there will be pause before a player in the field is called
to answer the question.
If the player in the field answers the question correctly, the flyball has been caught
and the batter is out. Click the out graphic on the screen. One run is subtracted
from the batting team's score for each out!
If the outfielder misses the question, the flyball has been dropped and the batter goes
to first base on an error. All runners advance one base on an error.
Questions alternate between teams after each hit or out.
