It was a competition in skill and good humor on Saturday at the World Whiffleball Championship.
It was the 7th annual for the competition where 50 teams compete for the title and raised money for the children's campus -- a Mishawaka facility for traumatized children.
Players swung their plastic bats and tried to tap into to childhood memories for inspiration.
Some teams have been playing together for years and said that the tournament serves as a reunion each year.
“Just being with my friends getting out of the house, catching up … stuff like that,” shared Cory Boyd, who played in the championship. “When I first started we just would play in the street and now you come out here and it’s like wow this many people are really playing?”
Players came in from throughout Indiana as well states like Georgia, Texas and Illinois just to be a part of today's championship.
