Work at a hospital that had some above a courtyard to keep the birds out of the tree, got rid of the trees and the netting is no longer needed.
The strike zone also helps to make the game more challenging and exciting by forcing players to hit specific targets. Further in fully-assembled form, the collapsible and coilable frame member and backstop is semi-elliptical and semi-rectangular in shape in a size suitable to serve as a backstop and strikezone for WIFFLE® ball games. In describing a preferred embodiment of the invention illustrated in the drawings, a plain description will be employed for the sake of clarity. When WiffleNet is collapsed, the coilable member forms overlapping loops over itself to minimize its shape for portability purposes. The coilable member has two ends to form a closed loop , which is enclosed in a cylindrical shell containing the coilable member which permits it to axially rotate.
The batter shall take his position in the batter’s box promptly when it is his turn to bat. The batter’s legal position shall be with both feet completely within the batter’s box.

If the proper batter is called out because he failed to bat in turn, the next batter shall be the batter whose name follows that of the proper batter in the batting order. A batter shall be called out, on appeal, when he fails to bat in his proper turn, and another batter completes a time at bat in his place.
Other materials which may be employed to form the frame include plastic materials having relatively high bending moduli which are in the shape of a flat strip or an oval tube. Round and square shaped tubing or solid stock can also be employed as material for forming the frame. The frame member is attached to the backstop fabric by sewing a fabric strap over the frame member to the perimeter of the backstop. While its height from above the ground should be 15 inches , you should also place the Wiffle ball strike zone 3 feet behind the batter’s box.
All BALLS and STRIKES are designated by the “hole” in the backstop. If the ball goes through the hole, it is considered a strike, even if it hits the side of the hole first. If the ball does not go through the hole, and is not swung at by the batter, it is considered a ball.
