Buckeye Donkey Ball is one of the pioneer promoters of the idea of playing various games from the backs of specially trained donkeys, for the funniest kind of wild wholesome entertainment. Donkey baseball is no exception.

  • All participants (12-15 per team)
    • Participants must be at least 16 years old. NO EXCEPTIONS.
    • All participants must turn in a waiver of liability on the day of the show (provided by Buckeye Donkey Ball). If the participant is 16 or 17 a parent or guardian must also sign the waiver.
    • All participants must attend a pre-game instructional meeting.  PARTICIPANTS MUST BE PRESENT IN ORDER TO PLAY.  NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • An MC (Master of Ceremonies)
    • This person should be comfortable speaking in public. Their job is to talk to the crowd during the game and run the scoreboard. Make sure they will have access to a sound system. The right person on this job can add much to the success of the show.
  • A suitable playing area
    • It is ideal to play donkey baseball on a baseball diamond. We will only use the infield area for the game.
    • If a baseball diamond is not available we can also set up on almost any soft surface (grass, sand, etc.).  We will not play on blacktop or concrete.
  • Umpire and donkeys
  • Equipment (ball, bases, bat)
  • Tickets
  • Advertising Materials (posters, flyers, etc.)
  • Insurance
  • Certificate of Award for all participants and a trophy for the winning team
  • Plan A (single show): The show will have one 6 inning game with a 15-20 minute intermission after the 3rd inning.
