Extra Information

Let's get creative and strategic. Purchase "extras" from your umpire prior to beginning each game.

There is no limit on how many "extras" you may purchase, however, you may only use 2 of each type of "extra" per game.

All "extras" may be purchased with cash only.

Purchase the following before the game starts:

  • Add an Out:  $25 - On the kicking team, if your captain wants to give the team one more chance, give the umpire your "add an out" card. This will take away one out from the count. (Example: If you are at 2 outs, you will go back down to 1.)
  • Extra Foul: $5
  • Steal a base: $10 - On the kicking team, if you get to first base, use your "steal a base" card to advance one base. (You can't steal home.)
  • Take an out away: $25 - On the field team, if you want the inning to end earlier, use your "take an out away" card to take an out from the kicking team.

Captain's Deals

Captains can take advantage of these deals at the captain's meeting before the tournament begins.

  • Out Package: Buy 3 outs, get one free
  • Take away an out package: Buy 3, get one free
  • Buy one of each "extra" for $50 (save $25)
