Beer Can Baseball is the game you play while you watch any live baseball broadcast. Any number can play. The game comes with everything you need to enjoy a lifetime a fun.
WHAT’S THE ORIGIN OF “BEER CAN BASEBALL”
Two buddies – Tom Miller & Craig Fogel – were sitting around one evening enjoying a few beers, watching a baseball game. The game was a little slow, so they tried figuring out ways to make the game more exciting. They began trying to predict the outcome of each player’s at-bat.
“We’d just take turns ‘playing’ either the batter or the pitcher,” says Miller, “trying to accurately predict the outcome of each player’s at-bat. If I played the batter and the batter got a base hit, I scored. If that batter struck out, Craig scored. It was that simple.
“And it was exciting. Gave us bragging rights. Suddenly it didn’t really matter which TEAM won – what we cared about was who got the most predictions right. Which of us scored the most!”
SO WHERE DID THE NAME COME FROM?
“Well, we stumbled on this while we were enjoying a few beers,” says Tom. “And we immediately realized we were on to something. So the next night we invited some buddies over. We all sat around playing the game over a few more beers. It was a lot of wild screaming and hollering – everybody loved it. Someone asked what we called it. Craig just blurted it out: ‘Beer Can Baseball.’ Perfect.”
HOW DO YOU KEEP SCORE?
Each game contains chips for score-keeping. At the end of the game the player with the most chips wins.
