Wiffle Ball -
August 2nd, 2012
With the Millennium Falcon coming in at close second, no plastic was better used for a kid’s toy or game than Wiffle ball.
When we were kids, our buddy had a square front yard that made the perfect infield. We used old carpet samples for bases, and a box on top of a milk crate served as the strike zone. Throwing the ball at the runner for an out was permitted and props were given for impersonating batting stances of our favorite players, including adjusting our plastic old MLB batting helmets like them. We’d play double headers, sometimes triple until supper time was called. It was a magical game and one of our top ten memories of being a kid. We loved it. Still do.
