Set up the two bases about 20 feet apart. Two kids would be selected to be "throwers", one at each base. The other kids would divide equally and go to the bases. The game started by the two kids who were "throwers" tossing the ball to each other. The object of the game was to time running from one base to the other without being tagged by the ball. If you were tagged then you become a "thrower" and the game continued, usually until everyone is too tired to run anymore. The fun of the game is getting the person who is a "thrower" to throw a wide pitch or "steal" the base.
