These baseball party games, crafts and activities are mainly intended for a kid's birthday. That said, one or two—such as the photo stand-in or the sign a baseball—could be adapted for an adult birthday party.
Incorporate a quiz into your baseball party games by having guests try to guess which city each team represents. For kid's you could do this with visual clues, so you show them an object and they guess the corresponding city. Some examples might be:
You could probably adapt this game into a quiz for adults by making the clues a bit more cryptic. For example:
If you've prepared a selection of items for the game above, you can use the same objects to play another one of these baseball party games which is perfect for kids. Just arrange all the objects onto a tray for everyone to memorize, then take away one item and see if anyone can identify what's missing. You can also trick them once or twice by not taking anything away and see how long it takes them to realize.
Treasure hunts always go down well at kid's parties, and you can create a simple one as part of these baseball party games by hiding cheap baseball cards (see supplier 3) all around the house and garden. Every ten baseball cards collected could be exchanged for a prize at the end of the game.
You could also mix in a few hidden baseballs which could be more valuable and allow the finder to exchange for a prize.
These inflatable baseball bats and balls are really handy for younger kids so they can still have a bit of a play too. Alternatively, you can pick up one of these cheap kits (below right) which also includes a stand. Both are available from supplier 3.
You can also get larger 14 - 16" inflatable baseballs (supplier 3) which you can use to play a game of dodgeball with a baseball theme.
If you want to make a game of baseball a bit more fun for younger kids, try playing crazy baseball. Each batter could be given a different handicap when it's their turn to bat. Some examples might be:
Set up a baseball obstacle course filled with different challenges, then split everyone into pairs to play. Some ideas are:
Award these certificates, below left, that come with baseball shaped holders for everyone that completes the baseball obstacle course above (see supplier 3). Alternatively, use these printable ones from supplier 4.
Pick up this cheap variation of the traditional 'Pin the Tail On' to go with these baseball party games. Available from supplier 3.
A great souvenir for the birthday boy or girl is to have all the guests sign either a baseball, bat or shirt (all from supplier 3).
Alternatively, you can have get everyone to sign one of these personalized baseball bats (availabe from supplier 3).
There are a couple of baseball party games available that are perfect for younger kids such as this inflatable ball toss game (below left, supplier 3) and this baseball themed bean bag toss one (below right, supplier 5). See here for both.
Finish off your baseball party games with a pinata. You can get these shaped like baseballs or jerseys (lots of teams available). Both available from supplier 1 or 3).
