For over 60 years, kids across the USA have been throwing jaw-dropping sinkers, knee-buckling curves, and other exploding Wiffle Balls pitches at each other. This weekend, the best wiffleball players in the world are grinding it out for The 2014 World Wiffle®Ball Championship. Join me next week as we tour the history of the American tradition of wiffleball - the backyard baseball game with a "twist." #history #baseball #summer
It all began when our grandfather was watching our father (who was 12 years old at the time) and a friend play a game in their backyard in Fairfield Connecticut, using a perforated plastic golf ball and a broomstick handle.
