Batter Up!

If you are at a barbecue, beach hang, happy hour, tailgate, or simply partying with some friends, then it is time to play Dizzy Bat!

This guide to Dizzy Bat will give you all the rules, tips, tricks, and materials to play the Dizzy Bat drinking game this weekend.

Three strikes and you are out there playing a super fun drinking game with just a beer, bat, and your coordination. What could be better?!?!

What is Dizzy Bat?

Dizzy Bat is an outside drinking game that combines aspects of baseball and beer chugging to form a perfect balance of dizziness, athletic competition, and beer drinking. This game has been popularized at tailgates and barbecues since it requires a classic wife ball-style bat to play.

What do I need to play Dizzy Bat? [Materials]

To play Dizzy Bat you will need one wiffle ball bat and one beer.

A Wiffle ball is a plastic, hollow ball shaped around the size of a normal baseball. These practice baseball balls are perfect for baseball players learning to pitch, catch and hit since they model their harder cousins.

Dizzy Bat Ideas

There are a few different versions of Dizzy bat that you can choose to play. They are all fun, it’s more just about finding the game that suits you and your friends best.

Let’s break them down:

The Filled Bat

1. Take the yellow wiffle ball bat and cut a small hole in the barrel of the bat. This hole will be used to create air flow for the chugger. Then carefully remove the “butt” of the bat to produce a hole in the handle for drinking out of the bat. (This only has to be done the first time when you have a brand new bat)

2. Fill the bat full of one beer

3. Chug the beer as fast you can out of the bat

4. Once you have finished drinking the beer, place your forehead on the end of the bat with the handle facing towards your head.

5. Touch the bat to the ground (or as close to the ground as possible) and spin around in a circle making sure to keep the bat in the space place

6. After 10 spins around the bat, the player must stand up and get into their batting stance

7. The other player (the one who has not drunk the beer and has been watching their friend the last 30 seconds) must then take the crumpled up beer can that they used to fill the Dizzy Bat and toss the can in the strike zone

8. The beer drinker must try to hit the can with the wiffle ball bat

The Shotgun Approach

This variation is similar to the classic Dizzy Bat rules yet involves zero drinking out of a large yellow bat by substituting in a shotgun. This makes it easy to play a number of games in a row as you won’t have to be constantly refilling the bat to play each time.

The Home Run Derby

The team Dizzy Bat game where players enter and go one by one to see who can hit the can the furthest. You can also substitute the can for a classic wiffle ball to really get some fly balls going.
