    • A.

      Out.

      In live play. The outfielders must retrieve the ball.

    Correct Answer
    B. Sent to 2nd base without being able to advance.
    Explanation
    When a player kicks a ball that skips over the outfield fence, it is considered a ground rule double in baseball. According to the rules, the player is sent to 2nd base without being able to advance further. This means that the player cannot continue running to 3rd base or home plate. The ball is out of play, and the outfielders do not need to retrieve it. Therefore, the correct answer is "sent to 2nd base without being able to advance."

    Wanda is standing on third base when William Robert goes to kick. William Robert kicks a fly ball into the outfield. Wanda quickly runs back and holds her postion on 3rd. When the outfielder catches the ball, Wanda quickly sprints home and scores her team a run. What kickball strategy did Wanda apply?

    Correct Answer
    Tagging up, Tag up
    Explanation
    Wanda applied the kickball strategy of tagging up, also known as tag up. This strategy involves a baserunner standing on a base and waiting for a fly ball to be caught by an outfielder before attempting to advance to the next base. In this scenario, Wanda was on third base when William Robert kicked a fly ball into the outfield. Instead of immediately running home, Wanda held her position on third base until the outfielder caught the ball. Once the ball was caught, Wanda quickly sprinted home and scored her team a run.

    Johnny had a fantastic kickball season as a pitcher. He led the class in ERA. What does ERA stand for?

    • A.

      Everyone Running Around

    • B.

      Earned Rolled Average

    • C.

      Every Resource Applied

    • D.

      Earned Run Average

    Correct Answer
    D. Earned Run Average
    Explanation
    ERA stands for Earned Run Average. In baseball, ERA is a statistic used to measure the effectiveness of a pitcher. It represents the average number of earned runs a pitcher allows per nine innings pitched. A lower ERA indicates a more effective pitcher, as it means they are giving up fewer runs per game. Johnny's achievement of leading the class in ERA suggests that he had a successful season as a pitcher, performing well in preventing the opposing team from scoring runs.

     A runner is on 1st base with less than two outs and the batter kicks the ball in the air.  What should the runner on first base do?

    • A.

      Tag up before proceeding to 2nd base.

    • B.

      Run to 2nd base without tagging up.

    • C.

      Wait for the batter to get to 1st base before proceeding to 2nd base.

    • D.

      None.

    Correct Answer
    A. Tag up before proceeding to 2nd base.
    Explanation
    When a batter kicks the ball in the air, the runner on first base should tag up before proceeding to 2nd base. This means that the runner must wait for the ball to be caught by a fielder before leaving 1st base. Once the ball is caught, the runner can then leave 1st base and attempt to advance to 2nd base. If the runner does not tag up and leaves 1st base before the ball is caught, they can be easily thrown out by the fielding team, resulting in an out for the offensive team.

  • 5. 

    There are 2 outs and runners are on every base.  The kicker kicks the ball in the air, what should the base runners do?

    • A.

      Tag up before proceeding to the next base.

    • B.

      Stand on their base and guess what image the clouds are making.

    • C.

      Begin running to the next base even before the ball is caught or dropped.

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Begin running to the next base even before the ball is caught or dropped.
    Explanation
    The base runners should begin running to the next base even before the ball is caught or dropped. This is known as "running on contact" and is a common strategy in baseball. By doing so, the base runners can take advantage of the time it takes for the fielders to catch the ball and make a throw to the next base, increasing their chances of reaching the next base safely.

    A batter kicks the ball and the throw to first beats him to the bag.  This would be considered what type of out?

    • A.

      Fair catch

    • B.

      Tag out

    • C.

      Force Out

    • D.

      In and out burger

    Correct Answer
    C. Force Out
    Explanation
    A force out occurs when a defensive player with the ball touches a base before the batter-runner reaches it, forcing the batter-runner out. In this scenario, the batter kicks the ball and the throw to first base beats him to the bag, meaning the defensive player touched the base before the batter-runner. Therefore, this would be considered a force out.

    Kickball is like which of these sports?

    • A.

      Volleyball

    • B.

      Swimming

    • C.

      Football

    • D.

      Baseball

    Correct Answer
    D. Baseball
    Explanation
    Kickball is like baseball because both sports involve kicking and running bases. In kickball, players kick a large inflated ball and run around bases to score points, similar to how baseball players hit a ball with a bat and run around bases. Volleyball and swimming do not involve kicking and running bases, while football involves throwing and catching a ball, which is different from kickball.

    Explanation
    Kickball is a sport that combines elements of baseball and soccer. In kickball, there are typically four bases that players must run to in order to score points. The bases are usually arranged in a diamond shape, with one base at each corner. Each base represents a different point on the field that players must reach in order to advance or score. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.

    • D.

    Medium-sized balls are the best to use for playing kickball because they strike a balance between being too small and too large. Tiny balls may be difficult to kick and control, while huge or gigantic balls may be too heavy and difficult to handle. Medium-sized balls provide the right amount of size and weight for players to kick and maneuver effectively during the game.
