Straight Ballin'

Adults revisiting schoolyard-game glory is serious business. Forget the team names that are a little too clever for their own good -- there are some ball-handling warriors who have poured blood, sweat, and tears into their climb to the top, including those ballers in the Great American Dodgeball Bash. The basics of the playground classic remain the same: assemble a team and toss a ball at the opposing team. Catch it and unleash your fury or get tagged with the projectile and hit the sidelines.
