What are Striking and Fielding Games


Players on the batting team strike an object and attempt to run between two points before the fielding team can recuperate the object. The teams exchange roles after a certain amount of hits or after a certain amount of players have been retired from the game. Tactical problems related to striking and fielding games include striking the object to an open space, reducing space on defence, scoring points and retiring players from the game. Examples of striking and fielding games include baseball, cricket, softball and kickball.
