[gjcuivdx] Simplified baseball

Batter hits, then sprints along a straight line track.  Fielders field the ball and throw it to the catcher as quickly as possible, who must have a foot on home plate, like a force out.

The distance the batter has run along the track by the time the catcher catches the ball is the offense produced in that play.  This may be best measured electronically.  Simplest is for the score to be the sum of the distances, but more complicated combining functions could be invented, perhaps involving distances of consecutive plays.
