Wiffle HouseThis is the kind of thing I'd be all over if someone did it around here:
Despite the sandlot rules and the tiny, plastic snap of the bat, Wiffle ball is serious stuff . . .

Got really into wiffle in college. Really into it. Owned an aluminum wiffle bat, in addition to a standard yellow, as well as a taped yellow. Played in leagues. That kept stats. Learned to bat lefthanded to account for when the wind was blowing to right field. Of course, we believed in baserunning, so none of this “hit it here, get a double” nonsense. Nope—we played three on three,(sometimes 4 vs 4), and you better hit it where they ain’t.
