If a player tosses a ball inadvertently or on purpose and it hits an opponent player in the head, the person who threw the ball is out. If a player ducks or falls to the ground and gets struck in the head, the player who was struck will be called out. Throwing balls must be done below the shoulders.
Thus, no, you cannot hit someone in the head with a ball thrown at high speed by another player.
However, if a player bends down or falls into a protective position because he/she knows that they are going to be hit with a ball, then they have violated some rule and can be called out themselves. For example, if a player charges the field with their head down looking for a ball, they could be out.
So in conclusion, yes, you can hit someone in the head with a ball thrown at high speed by another player.
This is prohibited, and the ball will be given over to the opposite team. 3. Headshots: To keep things simple, all headshots count. A player is not out until the thrown ball makes contact with another item or surface. This could be a helmet, chest protector, knee pads, etc.
There are two ways that a headshot can be scored in Dodgeball - automatically and manually. In both cases, once a headshot has been made, it cannot be reversed. The only way out for a player is if someone else commits a foul first.
In automatic headshots, the computer-controlled opposing team will automatically receive the point after a certain number of heads have been shot. For example, if there are six players on each team, then each team will get one point automatically if five or more heads are shot at once.
In manual headshots, the opposing team needs to choose who gets the point by saying "out" or "in". If no one says "out", then the player stays in and another player can take their place. But if someone does say "out", then that player has gone too and a replacement can't come from anywhere else. They must be replaced.
Only two people can be removed in one game.
If a player throws a ball that is captured by the other team, they are out. They are struck by a ball fired by the other side. (If the ball bounces off an opposing player and is caught, the thrower is out.) A player is out if they leave the playing field for any reason except for injury. If a player is out, one of their teammates must take their place.
There are several ways a player can be removed from a game of Dodgeball including injuries, exhaustion, and forfeits. In some cases, a player may be able to remove themselves from the game by throwing the ball back at their opponents. However, once the ball is in play, it cannot be intercepted by a teammate (unless the player who threw it out attempts to do so again). Instead, the player who caught it can choose to return it to play or not. If they do not, then they will have to stand in line for another turn at bat.
Injuries should never be used as a reason for removal from a game of dodgeball. If a player is injured and tells their coach, they should remain on the field until they are no longer hurt. It is possible that they might continue to get hit with balls until they are replaced by another player.
Forfeits are situations where a player is removed from the game for reasons other than injury or inability to continue.
The runner is out if he or she gets hit in the head while ducking, diving, or sliding (attempting to evade the ball). There is no tagging up; if the ball is caught, the person on base must return to their original base. A head-first dive for example, would be considered as getting hit by the ball.
In addition to being out, the runner also runs the risk of suffering from long-term effects if severe trauma occurs. For example, someone who is kicked in the head may experience symptoms such as confusion, dizziness, loss of consciousness, and seizure like episodes after the injury. The victim should seek medical attention immediately after an incident like this occurs.
