No bat, no problem. No ball, no problem. It’s amazing what you can do with a frying pan and a ball of rolled-up socks!

The challenges

There are three key skills of MLB60 catching, pitching and batting. You have 60 seconds to show us what you can do.

  • Catching – Using a ball or items in your house, ask a friend or family member to pitch or throw balls to you at different degrees of difficulty. How many can you catch in 60 seconds?
  • Pitching – Create your own target to pitch into, make sure that it’s between your shoulder and waist height. How many times can your pitches hit the target in 60 seconds?
  • Batting – Using any ball or items in your house, select 3 targets and give them each a score of 1, 2, or 5 points based on difficulty. Hit the targets to score as many points as possible in 60 seconds.
  • Home Run Derby – Set your target distance. Get someone to pitch at you and try to hit the ball beyond that target. How many home runs can you get in 3 minutes?
