The teams are broken up into two teams. Kid's are allowed to discuss the questions between themselves.
It starts the director who is the "pitcher". Yes, I actually do stand on the "pitchers" mound and pitch the questions to the kid's.

1 = first base question
2 = second base question
3 = third base question
4 = home run question
5 = Out
6 = Walk (no question needed!)

The kids do love this game! I have to admit I do too. Now, if they would just stop asking to use a real ball and bat!!
