Volleybat Defined

vol·ley ·bat  \ˈvä-lē bat\

noun, often attributive


Perhaps the best game ever invented, as made famous at Camp Menorah. Played primarily in Upper Field by two teams who try to score runs by hitting a volley ball with a bat and then running around the bases without being called out. If the volley ball is hit over the fence, it’s a home run. If it touches the trees, it’s a foul. If it’s caught, it’s an out.
