Hebrew Baseball is a classic Hebrew School review game.
1) Split the class into two teams
2) Give each team half a minute to decide on a team name. The exciting thing is now students can choose from teams in the Israel Baseball League.
3) Decide how many innings you want to play depending on how much time you have. Announce this to the class so it is clear.
4) First team quiet gets to choose if they want to be up to bat or play the field
5) Arrange team batting order by how the teams are sitting.
6) Draw baseball diamond on blackboard.
Time to Play Ball!
The first student up to bat gets a question. If they get the question right the team gets a man on base. Each question is a single. Use your game pieces to denote who is on base.
If the student gets a question wrong the team gets an out.
Strikes and balls can be awarded if the teams complain about a call by the Ump (you) or if they are too noisy.
For example, if the team up is too noisy give them a strike and if the team in the field is noisy then award the team up a ball.
Three strikes equals an out and four balls means the team up gets a walk and puts a man on first base.
