Game Family Fungo Fungo
Description

Fielders catch fungo hits, with a caught fly worth 100 points, a one-bouncer 75 points, etc. A player who accrues 500 points becomes the hitter. In some versions, muffed catches deduct points, and the Hit-the-Bat option is employed. Land’s review of schoolyard games includes two references to 500.
