It has been a while since I have seen this, so I thought I'd explain the rules again for those of you who are not familiar with them:


You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.

Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in.

When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out.

Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out.

Depending on the weather and the light, the umpires can send everybod in, no matter if they're in or out.

When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

SIMPLE !

Awww.. I was actually looking forward for a explanation of the
game in laymens terms

But my initial dissapointment, I have to admit that your explanation
is funny.
