Baseball, the drinking game, is a turn-based team drinking game where skill dictates the winner. 3 missed shot and your team's turn is over, and running score is tallied over the course of the "innings".
Two teams go to opposite ends of a long table. Cups are arranged in a straight line fashion (with gaps in between), representing the bases. The closest cup (single) is filled 1/4 full. The next furthest cup (double) is filled 1/2 full, followed by the next cup (triple) being filled 3/4 full, and finally the last cup (home run) filled completely.
Three cups are also arranged in the middle of the table to represents bases, the first base cup is 1/2 full, the second base cup is 3/4 full, and the third base cup is full. A fourth cup is placed opposite them, (representing a catch from the opposing team), and is 1/3 full.
In Baseball the drinking game, an inning consists of each team shooting in a turn-based fashion (amongst themselves) until they've missed three times, representing 3 outs. Each team takes turns at bat, it's not like most other ball & cup drinking games where teams take turns.
After a cup is made, the players moves to the cup on the middle of the table that represents the base he's on, and the next player from his team is up to bat. There are two ways to advance bases: advance the number of bases that a following batter makes (if they make a double, you both move 2 bases), or steal.
Stealing a base is accomplished by first, being on base, and then choosing to play an impromptu game of flip cup vs the other team's catcher, who is constantly standing at his teams "catcher cup" opposite the base cups in the middle of the table. Anyone on base can steal at any time, as long as their team is still at bat. If the base runner wins, he advances to the base represented by the cup he drank. If the catcher wins, that base runner is out.
After 3 outs, the teams switch. The team that isn't at bat focuses on catching air balls and making sure their catcher prevents any base stealing. Eventually, the game ends after 9 innings.
There are some special rules as well:
Alternate Rules: To make the game more like true Baseball, you can give each batter three strikes, and introduce a rule where catching a ball before it hits the table or ground results in an out.
