Rules of the Game

HRDX is a derby with defense. The rules are simple. A single game takes about 30 minutes. 3 players per team. Each player gets 1 at bat of 2 ½ minutes. During an at bat the opposing team is in the outfield to catch the ball. Teams earn offensive points for home runs and defensive points for catches. At the end of the game, the team with the most points wins.

Bonus points are earned by hitting home runs through a centerfield target. During each at bat, batters can call for a hot streak of 5 swings where everything counts double. In the final minute of an at bat, batters can tag in a teammate to finish with a flourish.
