CHERRY (also called "Hit the Bat" or "Stick Ball")

"CHERRY" The game is played with a baseball bat and ball (usually a tennis ball so we didn't

break any windows). There are no teams, just one person up to bat and everyone else in the outfield. The person with the bat tosses the ball up and hits it. He/she then places the bat on the ground in front of him/her.

The person who gets the ball rolls it at the bat from the place where the ball was picked up.
When and if the ball hits the bat it pops up into the air. If the batter does not catch the ball, the person who rolled it is then up to bat. If someone in the field catches a hit before it touches the ground, they are automatically up to bat.
