Finnish Baseball (Pesäpallo)

In the early 20th century, a Finnish man named Lauri “Tahko” Pihkala sought to create a distinctive game that would resonate with his fellow Finns.

Drawing inspiration from American baseball, Pihkala devised the basis of Pesäpallo, a sport that would soon capture the hearts of the nation.

This is the field:

The pitcher stands next to the batter and throws the ball straight up.
If the batter hits it, he runs to his left to 1st base, then back to the right for 2nd.  Crossing back over, he will get to 3rd (which is a score).
If he runs home, that is an additional score.

Signature Tees!

Signature tees are great for graduates, class trips, sports teams, and more!   I have over 50 different template that  can be customized — in terms of colors, words, and clip art.  Pick the one you want and I will deliver the template with a Sharpie.  Get all your students, etc to sign the template.  When done, I will pick it up and convert it into a unique and memorable tee!

Kinda like this…
