perverting the tried and tested rules of baseball is only one step away of being reduced to kick ball.

I agree with Chris...Rounders is the future. Can we all dress up in crazy team outfits like the guys in that film The Warriors??? with face paints and everything.

Rounders is probably better. It is cheaper, simpler, requires fewer people and is more flexible. Baseball is maybe only worth playing if you are at a certain level. If we are all crap, then being run out most of the time and no prospect of a home run, then it will be less fun. Rounders is enjoyable even if some of us are no good.

That said, it is more ambidextrous. Hmm.

softball is a good game, similar to baseball but a bit lighter. gloves are not needed for all positions maybe... maybe some people will invest in their own gloves?

I wish this conversation was a week ago. My mom could've brought my glove over!

How does rounders work?

I was looking forward to tossing a ball around - need a glove for a good game of catch.

I've got my own glove, so that's a start.

Agree with Ryan on the softball option.

ok... well in the meantime I shall follow the bat bid on ebay and perhaps try my luck. Anybody got an idea on how much I should bid to? Prices on baseball equipment is not my forte.

Is baseball equipment easy to get your hands on here? You can get a used bat cheap in the homeland, but it's a more common game...

I like the idea of one made of willow so when we're done with it we can plant it into the water of leith and watch it grow.

It's non-logoed too!

Looks good, I've put on a bid.

Do we need more than one bat ?

looks lovely... buy buy buy...

we discussed this at meeting tonight. We reckoned that any more than 12 pounds was too much for a bat.

so anything up to that can be exchanged for forest dollars. wahay...

It is also felt that bat can be used from anything from rounders to baseball. So with that and a tennis ball, we already have hours of fun.

One bat on its way. Cost was 11 quid, but about another fiver for postage. Seems very reasonable to me, and anyway I've paid.

Did the baseball / softball equipment aquisition risk assessment preparatory meeting come to any preliminary conclusions about gloves by any chance ?

Perhaps we can buy a helmet for Alex just so he looks funny ?

Softballs do not have to be thrown under arm (though that's how the official rules go). Also, bigger ball means easier to hit. Tennis balls will go really, really far when whacked. Maybe too far...

It turns out that willow bat's what you use if you weigh 250lb. Babe Ruth was 215lb.

Maybe half of us could buy gloves for ourselves and share them around as they ought to be taken care of, being cut off the backs of animals. Here's a few for small right hands from an Edinburgh seller:

hum... we have bat... and have ground to a halt.

At least one person said they already had a glove. Is this true of anyone else? I'm currently watching a few items on ebay. A couple of these are right hand gloves (for you lefties).

I'm not too sure what I need to be looking out for in terms of size etc. I know there's the leather issue, but they're second hand so that's something right?

In any case, these seem pretty cheap. Might be nice to get ahold of two/three gloves. Any thoughts?

Here are some examples:

alternatively (or may additionally) one or two of us can get our own gloves as Daniel suggests.

Just won a right hand glove for left handed players for a fiver. Some progress is being made. Someday we will have a game... of something. Do not lose hope. My next target has a ball involved. Wahay.
