Summary

Beer Bat Ball is an outdoor drinking game similar to baseball or cricket but with an alcoholic twist: race to finish your beers when the ball hits the ground

Equipment

Setup

Organize into two evenly divided teams (we recommend a minimum of 3 players per team). One team starts out hitting with one hitter and the rest of their team lined around the table ready to drink. The other team is scattered around the field with a pitcher, similar to wiffle ball.

Rules

The Beer Bat Ball drinking game rules are similar to the classic game beer ball where each person on the team must have an unopened beer. You have one team pitching/fielding while the other has one batter and the rest of the team ready to chug at the table (usually near the home plate). You play a predetermined number of innings, usually 3, and at the end whichever team has cumulatively drank more beers is the winner. If you've never played or watched baseball before, and inning consists of each team both hitting and fielding.

Hitting

The hitting team is the only one that drinks per turn. One person hits at a time, and if they hit the ball the rest of his team can start drinking as soon as the ball hits the ground. They continue to drink until the fielding team gets that hitter out (see below). The person who hit the ball can also contribute to the beer chugging effort.

Fielding

The fielding team spreads out around the hitter. Ideally the pitcher wants to strike the hitter out (2 strikes = out), but should they fail, the fielding players do their best to catch the ball. If the ball drops, they pick it up and tag the table that the hitting team is drinking at as soon as possible to close the out. Beer Bat Ball is similar to Cricket in that there are no foul balls, so a hit can go behind the person at bat and count as in play.

Winning

After 3 innings (or however many you decided to play), the team that drank the most beers overall wins, so make sure to keep a running tally as you play.

As always, please remember to drink responsibly while enjoying this alcohol drinking game, and please leave feedback in the comments if you enjoyed it!
