The Game

‘It's Anybody’s game’

The rules are innovative and designed to ensure the game is fast-paced and exciting. Last Man Stands was named after the Founders’ favourite rule! LMS aims to attract a new audience to the game - the Double Play and Steal rules narrow the gap between baseball and cricket. Although the games only last 2 hours all 8 players are promised maximum participation and a good workout.

We aim to give a professional experience to amateur players of all abilities. We also aim to take the pain out of social sport for team organisers - we organize the umpires, balls, pitches, scoring. All teams have to do is turn up!
