Also, if you hit the ball over B. Rick Waller, you were out, and had to get it back, however if the nice old man next door was around, and threw it back, it's 4. If you managed to run the ball off the top bricks of the wall, it was an extra 2, but subject to the above rule. The wall was also admonished for dropping a catch. We were a bit looney.
If you hit the ball straight and over the far wall though, it was straight out. That old man wasn't so nice, and he had mean dog. This rule was more to discourage my cousin, who was tons better than any of us.
That used to be fun.
