Touch em all.
Gonna follow a pitching duel with some offense. Simple set up. Need an 8.5 x 11 sheet of plain paper. Fold or cut it so it's an 8.5x 8.5 square. Make a 1.5 inch square in each corner and make them with base numbers. The goal is to score a run. One base per day starting with first base. You get three swings at each base but you cannot advance until you get that base. Only one base per day. So if you hit first base with any of your first three shots you can shoot at second base the next day. But if you miss all three "swings" then your next try you are still shooting at first base. Also if one of the three shots, say shot one or two, hits a base other than than the one you are shooting at you are done for the day. Same goes for the other bases as you advance. So if you get all the way around the bases you are done for the week but it will take a minimum of four days of shooting to get around the bags.
That said anyone who gets all the way to third after shooting through Friday can shoot at home plate Saturday until the score or get frustrated and give up.
Winner is the one who advances the furthest with the fewest shots. Shooting will be from 13.5 yards and any position you choose. Youth will shoot at 5 yards.

My example was done with print out paper Matt (my nurse today) gave me and I used a folded bill to do the bases so it is lacking in perfect measurements but you get the drift. You are welcome to make bolder lines and base numbers so that you can see it better.

Also, kids targets can have 2 inch squares. Although I realize they wanna shoot like mom or dad.

Day two took 3 swings as well. Third time is a charm I guess.

Nuther great shot, Gary!

Yes. You can shoot through Saturday. Outs dont affect anything. I was just being "funny" when I called that on my shot the other day.
However it looks to me like you got the edge of the line with that one shot. I'd say runner on second.

Held shot two way too long.

Next weeks shot will have some range on it. That way I know I'll lose.

Nothing wrong with the call, Gary. Maybe, have a little bigger bases. I'll post pics of my gatlin-arrow shots from yesterday in a minute.

Was losing some focus by the third-base and home plate shots.
