One summer we actually kept Whiffle Ball Stats and everyone had to wear those cheap plastic replica batting helmets. It was a glorious summer. Left field had the Red Monster, a neighbors out building that had to be cleared for a ball to be considered a homerun. Centerfield went uphill and had a Bradford pear tree half way between second base and the centerfield fence.

 

We would play 50 inning games of 2 on 2 whiffle ball, sometimes lasting for days.

Our NERF gridiron was 1/2 asphalt and 1/2 grass, as we played on a side street that had little traffic and no sidewalks. We had about 40 yards between driveways to fit in our field. Smashed flat Coke cans would mark the ball and the line to gain for a first downs.

 

I can drive down that street today and my knee just starts bleeding...:lol2:

We never had the fancy ball like that...I don't think it had been invented yet. :lol2:

Still love tossing the whistling football while on the beach. I make sure we have a new one to take every year

Whiffle ball for me. But we substituted that skinny yellow bat for a big old fat one that we nicknamed Bam Bam. Hit the ball so hard with that, that we had to wrap the sweet spot with duct tape to keep the seam from splitting apart. You could hit some prodigious shots with that. But playing defense was almost as fun, trying to rob home runs before they cleared the pine tree "wall". Ahhh, good times.

Had some great whiffle ball games back in the day, but for me it was a nerf football by a wide margin.

Don't think I ever had a Nerf football but had many Wiffle ball bats and balls. Yes, you had to tape up the balls or they explode.

I didn't realize we were neighbors. I did the same thing
