WHY BUY THIS? Because, it used to be Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie, and Chevrolet. Now it is Whiffle Ball, a plant-based burger, a healthy Apple, and a Minivan. Yes, this game is the great American pastime. If you grew up as a baby boomer, you played it. You know, the long thin yellow bat with holes in the balls that, depending on how you held it, allowed you to throw a curveball or screwball. A spacious backyard is all you need for Whiffle Ball, and the set includes a bat and balls. Oh, and a home run fence would be nice too. Be wary, you will tear up your lawn so if your one of those dudes who wants the perfect lawn, then this sport is not for you. And you can buy this Whiffle Ball set with a bat and balls. Then garner your inner David Ortiz and play with your kids without expending too much energy. Okay, maybe you risk pulling a hamstring. It has happened before. And if you want to go old school, then take a look at the classic game of Kickball. But back to America’s game, you’ll need to get some Bases and the David Ortiz Big Papi Bat while you are at it.
