French Cricket
Description <p>"Plugging as in soaking the hitte <p>"Plugging as in soaking the hitter - never read about that in Cricket except for 'French Cricket' (a picnic game played by kids in France & I played it too) where you stand with your feet together as if standing in attention, with the bat in front protecting it below the knees and surrounded by fielders/catchers surrounding you. The object is to hit the batter below the knee with the ball from any direction & the batter hits it away. If he looses his balance & one leg is lifted up or he gets hit on the leg, he is out. Fielders are about 10' away & the ball is thrown quickly at the legs."</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Query</span>: It would be interesting to know what the French name for this game is, and whether it relates to earlier folk games in France.</p> to earlier folk games in France.</p>
