Kickball can help you in other sports

Do you like sports? Do you like running and playing outside? If you do, you should play kickball. Do you know kickball helps you in other sports? Kickball could help you in soccer, football and baseball. It helps you in soccer because it helps you kick harder and run faster. Kickball helps you in baseball because it helps your mind learn to run faster. Kickball helps you in football because it helps you dodge people. Kickball is similar to baseball. You have to touch all the bases and come back home. A kickball field has four bases, which makes a diamond, and you have to kick a ball instead of hitting it with a bat.

Here is some history I found out about kickball. Kickball was invented in the early 1900s by Nicholas C. Seuss in Ohio. World War II correspondent Ernie Pyle reported U.S. soldiers playing kickball during the Tunisia Campaign (1942-1943). Kickball is currently a playground and recreational game primarily played in North America. It is also a favorite game of youth in South Korea.
