The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
This was a game played by digging a little hole in a straight
line and taking a tennis ball and rolling it down the line.
Whatever hole the ball stopped in the player had to quickly
retrieve the ball and try to throw and hit the other players who
had taken off running. If you hit a player with the ball a rock or
baby was put in his hole, if you missed one was put in yours. If
you had as many babies as there were players you had to line up
against a fence and each player got to throw and hit you anyplace
on your body with the ball.
