Get Soused on the Diamond with Sloshball
Summer is nealy upon us, and it's about time to start thinking about how you're going to waste...errr, spend...those hot, lazy days. How about a sport that involves a keg, but also involves a little activity so your legs don't atrophy while you're pouring yourself beer after beer? As far as we can tell, that's what Sloshball is all about - a bastard hybrid of softball and drinking. We know what we're going to be doing with our summers now, with Sloshball during the day and beer pong at night. God bless America.
Here's a little more about the sport:
Established in Southern California in 1995, Sloshball.org is the world's only organization dedicated to the global expansion of the great game of Sloshball. Its humble beginnings date back to the early 1980's and the sun-drenched ballfields of Boulder, Colorado. Today, it's become more than just a game--it's a state of mind. With organized Sloshball events spreading south to San Diego, Houston and Tulsa and east all the way to Toronto, North Carolina and Philly, it's clear that Sloshball is here to stay.
We're not big softball players, but we like any game where runners are obliged to empty a keg cup at second base before they can continue to third, and where a player who hits a home run is immediately joined by his teammates for a social drink. If we could figure out how to combine this sport with wiffle ball without ending up in rehab, we'd be in heaven. Check out an overall list of Sloshball rules
