Sandlot Ball, is an North Americanadolescent game that generally follows the basic rules of baseball. More specific rules can be set for games and may vary each time the game is played. These rules are usually agreed upon before the game begins by "teams" of young boys or girls usually from the same neighborhood. The word “sandlot” refers to the makeshift field, which could be nothing more than an empty piece of land in the area composed of grass, dirt, or sand that is big enough to facilitate the game. Objects used in playing the game can be improvised to take the place of bases, balls, or bats if they are unavailable.
Although a variation of baseball is usually associated being played on a sandlot, other sports could occupy the field such as kickball or flag football.
