Try to hit this.....
I remember playing half-rubber. Split a baseball sized rubber ball in half. Bat with a broom. I sucked.
I bring a set on our summer beach vacation trip, with 10 wiffle balls. We just play homerun derby. Me, 2 other dads, 4 strapping teenage boys, and my 2 girls. It's one of the most looked forward to events during that week. I have never been beaten. I never thought of playing cork ball (to be honest, I havent thought of cork ball in 25 years). Zero chance any of them could hit it. But I'll make one up this year. I wonder how a champagne cork would work?
My knuckle ball is weak compared to these guys! Who the hell can hit this? Wile E Coyote???
Cork ball was a blast. Taped a penny to the end of a wine cork with adhesive tape and used a standard broomstick for the bat. Used to play with my best friend, dad and the firefighter next door. We dominated those old fckers.
Wouldn't you know some crackerjack comes along and takes all the fun out of it.
I was probably an MLB pitcher if not for wiffle ball - I ruined my elbow trying to throw curves and screwballs, and chased elbow problems my entire HS career. Totally worth it though. I had an unhittable dropball, and learned to throw a real knuckleball with a whiffle ball. My real knuckleball would knuckle about 30% of the time, but one night playing American Legion ball, I couldn’t miss. I was Phil f*cking Neikro. I don’t think I ever had as much fun on the mound, because a good moving knuckleball makes hitters look stupid, and I, my team, and the umpire were all laughing our asses off. I was never able to repeat that night again.
Did one look like this?
My roommates and I used to play back in the 80s while living in the Hawaiian Village Apts, if you hit it over the building it was a home run. I don’t know how many balls we hit that landed on the roof and never came down, they’re probably still up there.
Definitely not after the last few hurricane seasons.
