A1.2-Reading-Test 26

Read the following passage and choose the best answers.


Stickball is a fun sport that can be played on city streets. It is like a special version of baseball. Because it is so simple, kids of all ages can play it.

A lot of space is needed to play baseball. However, stickball can be played in small areas in the city. You can even play it between two apartment buildings or on narrow streets. Manhole covers or sacks of dirt are often used as the bases.

Stickball has almost the same rules as baseball, but you need less equipment to play it. To play baseball, you need gloves, bats, balls, helmets, and more. However, common objects can be used to play stickball. For example, a pink rubber ball called a Spaldeen is used instead of a baseball. A mop handle or stick replaces the bat. This is how the game got its name, stickball!

Next time you’re bored, don’t turn on a video game. Find some everyday objects and play stickball with your friends!
