That Wonderful Wiffleball (in Photos)

Best #wiffleball field ever. Need to get a full game going on this. #wiffle #kansascity #monarchs


I love the Wiffleball. I love that it is like baseball, but playable just about anywhere and with as few as two people. I love that I can play in the backyard with Beckham without concern of breaking something. This stupid little ball is so great I thought I would share a collection of photos over the past year or so of family and covenant family enjoying Wiffle Ball. Above is Beckham and I at 19th and Paseo in Kansas City. Bob Reymond showed me this field and it was so much fun to play on.

Below is an impromptu Sunday morning game before Sunday School began. This picture almost feels like something from the late 1800s of people playing outside a church.

AM Wiffle before SS #wiffleball #wiffle

Here is a neighborhood game with Ron, Dillion, Gwen, Gavin and Ezra as Sadie Piper continued her pursuit of riding without training wheels. Also Laura, Katie and Tammy giving commentary in the background.

This is from a Sunday night at the Redeemer Barn Field.  Sam beaned Laura, Caleb went yard and Meredith and Emily danced.

Here Sam Basham gets a game going in his cabin at RiverRanch at bedtime. A light switch was busted, but Tim replaced that for less than a dollar.

Wiffle in the cabin. #wiffleball #wiffle

Here is another shot of the barn field from this summer, we even had foul poles, no idea how we failed to get a good picture of this.

While waiting for Baxter to show up for Oasis this game broke out. New Hope actually makes a pretty good field with a big stained glass monster wall in right field. Sam is pitching to Lenin in this shot.

Rico and Sam get a game going during the Hanging of the Greens Chili Supper (never really hit the ball here, just for fun photo)

Before Sunday night cookouts began we had this field which made for a fun game when people stood on the balcony to watch Homerun derby.

 A second shot of Becks and I playing on this downtown KC field. This spring I want to take a group to go play on this. The building to the right is the Paseo YMCA. The players are all Kansas City Monarchs.

 Even Sadie Piper likes to play a little Wiffle. If she hits a ball she runs the bases while I throw extra wiffle balls at her.

 Laura at RiverRanch getting pretty serious.

 Beckham using the tee early in the summer.

Playing in the cement bayou in Houston.

Ubuntu vs Chloe last summer.

and the switch.

 Joy was always one of the most enthusiastic Wiffleballers at RiverRanch, she and Sam formed a team called “The No Buntus” They forbid Ubuntu from being on their team and also forbid bunting in general. Don’t let that stance fool you, girl can hit.
