Baseball is grass, chalk, and dirt displayed the same yet differently

In every park that has ever heard the words play ball.

Baseball is a passion that bonds and divides all those who know it.

Baseball is a pair of hands stained with newsprint,

A set of eyes squinting to read a boxscore,

A brow creased in an attempt to recreate a three-hour game

From an inch square block of type.

Baseball is the hat I wear to mow the lawn.

Baseball is a simple game of catch

and the never-ending search for the perfect knuckleball.

Baseball is Willie vs Mickey, Gibson vs Koufax, and Buddy Biancalana vs the odds.

Baseball links Kansan and Missourian, American and Japanese,

But most of all father and son.

Baseball is the scent of spring,

The unmistakable sound of a double down the line,

And the face of a 10-year-old emerging from a pile of bodies

With a worthless yet priceless foul ball.

Baseball is a language of very simple words that tell unbelievably magic tales.

Baseball is three brothers in the same uniform on the same team for one brief summer

Captured forever in a black and white photo on a table by the couch.

Baseball is a glove on a shelf, oiled and tightly wrapped,

Slumbering through the stark winter months.

Baseball is a breast pocket bulging with a transistor radio.

Baseball is the reason there are transistor radios.

Baseball is a voice in a box describing men you've never met,

In a place you've never been,

Doing things you'll never have the chance to do.

Baseball is a dream that you never really give up on.

Baseball is precious.

Baseball is timeless.

Baseball is forever.

Party Games & Ideas

Attend a Baseball game Many teams from professional to college have birthday party packages. Just search for your local team. (tip type the team name and birthday parties)

Go to a Sports Complex Many indoor sports complexes offer sporting birthday parties, including those for baseball.

At Home Games

Baseball skills obstacle course From as little as $6.99 each, you can buy toy baseball bats. These can double as party favors for the kids to take home later. Here are some ideas for stations in your obstacle course. You can do this inside or out. Have kids go one at a time and keep track of how long it takes them to finish.

---------------------Station 1: Scoop the rolling baseball with glove and throw at target. Three tries to hit target. (target can be anything form a person catching the ball to a cardboard cut out.)

--------------------Station 2: Sprint around cones to the next station. Right before arriving at the next station, slide into a base.

--------------------Station 3: Stop, drop, and roll 3 times. But don't let the ball fall out of your glove or you start over with station 3. Only have to do this twice if it falls out.

--------------------Station 4: Have an adult toss a ball while the kid is running and have them catch it on the run. Try up to three times before advancing to last station. If they catch it the first time, they move on.

-------------------Station 5: Have an adult pitch the ball, the kid tries to hit the ball at a target. There can be many targets with numbers on them. If they hit one, they get that many points taken off their total score. They run to the finish.

Winner is the person with the least time (after subtracting any target point from Station 5)

Pinata

Use the baseball bats from the obstacle course as sticks to whack the pinata.

Or put a twist to the pinata activity. Make a lighter paper mache creation. Set it up and let the kids throw balls at it (one at a time) until it breaks.

Baseball Toss

Instead of guest tossing water balloons or eggs back and forth with their hands, have them use their gloves to toss water balloons, eggs, or balls

(whichever you decide). The pairs that catch it take one step back to make the throwing distance further. Those that miss are out. Play continues until only one pair of tossers are left.
