Description

This game is the same as Off The Wall, except ball is thrown off the front steps of the house.  If the ball goes over the head of the fielder and over the car parked on he near side of the street it is an out.  If the ball its the car, behind the fielder and stays on the same side of the street it is in play.

Skill points:  [a] throw the ball of the point of the stoop to get a hard line drive at the feet of the fielder.  [b] throw ball across your body to obstruct the view of the ball coming at the fielder.
