Baseball to Cricket

  1. You can't strike out. Swing and miss as much as you like.
  2. There's no foul territory. Hit the ball anywhere you like.
  3. There are no balls. The pitcher is even allowed to bounce the ball on the ground before it reaches the batter.
  4. There are no walks either. If you get hit by a pitch, tough.
  5. If you hit the ball, you only have to run if you think it's safe to do so. Otherwise, stay where you are and take another pitch.
  6. If you reach home plate and score a run, don't go back to the dugout. Stay there to face the next pitch. Or keep running on to first again if you wish.
  7. When you get out, no matter what base you're on, the next batter comes in to replace you where you were.
  8. The bases are always loaded.
  9. So if you hit a home run, that's 4 runs. But don't bother actually running the bases, since that's pointless. Just stay where you are.
  10. Take the gloves off the fielders.
  11. Once you're out, you can't bat again in the same inning.
  12. The team's inning is only over when 6 players are out, since this leaves only 3 players who aren't out to man the bases.
  13. Let's increase a home run to scoring 6 runs, but still the batters don't move any bases when one is hit.
  14. Reduce the number of bases from four to two.
  15. Replace each base with three upright wooden poles in a row, 28 inches high, with the outermost two 9 inches apart.
  16. When batting, you are out if the pitcher hits the poles with a pitch, or if you get in the way and he hits you. You better defend them with your bat!
  17. If the ball hits the wall around the field, let's automatically score 4 runs and the ball is out of play.
  18. Increase the number of players from 9 to 11 per team. So now, the inning is over when 10 players are out, since that just leaves one player and two bases to man.
  19. Reduce the number of innings from nine to two.
