Math Baseball Instructions
First, you need to cut out the cards and game pieces. Specialty cards such as “You’re Out” cards, “Strike” cards, and "Homerun" cards get shuffled in with the rest of the cards). After shuffling the cards, player 1 takes the game board labeled "Player 1" and the answers for “Player 2” and player 2 takes the game board labeled "Player 2" and the answers for “Player 1". (Each player will be checking the other player's answers).
Players each draw a card from the pile and follow the directions on the card. If the card has a problem number on it, the player locates and completes that problem on their problem sheet. A point is earned for each run (crossing home plate). Players check each other’s answers and keep score recording runs, strikes, outs, and innings on their copy of the score sheet. When a player gets 3 outs, he/she begins a new inning. (3 strikes = 1 out just like in real baseball.) Because each player is considered a separate team, their innings may not end at the same time. However, scores are compared after each player has played the same number of innings.
The player with the higher score (the most runs) is the winner.
The game ends after each player completes 9 innings or a set number of innings if time does not permit 9 innings.
Remember: Scores are compared after both players complete the same number of innings. Because of "outs," players will not necessarily be on the same inning at exactly the same time.
