kickball

Kickball is a sport that was started in the US. The game is especially popular with school aged children. Kickball is a cheaper and easier alternative to the national pastime, baseball. The objective of the game is to score more runs than the other team. You did this, not with a bat and ball but by kicking a large rubber ball. The pitcher doesn't throw the ball but instead they roll it. The game doesn't have the same popularity as baseball or other major sports, however, kickball is a very popular game for children and even adult leagues.
