Harry's Grand Slam BaseballSpring 2006 Games
The cards are shuffled and three cards are dealt to each player (the team manager.) Players take turns playing cards on the diamond that help their team score when at bat, or they play defensively when in the field. Cards indicate typical baseball plays and are identified as out, on base, and runner cards, or special pinch hitter and relief pitcher cards. Red squares on the corners of the cards indicate the number of bases to advance each runner; the white circles represent outs. After three “outs” the other team gets to bat.
Just like Major League Baseball, some innings progress more quickly than others. And because each turn requires participation and decision making, players are always a part of the game.
