Does anyone have stories of how rules have formed around any odd one-off phenomena?
Example: Once, a few years ago when we were playing with the neighbours in my driveway, my dad was having a bat. He hit the ball over the driveway, over the street, over the house across the street and into their backyard swimming pool.
Everyone stood there in silence watching the ball sail away and broke out in rapturous cheering when we heard the splash.
After that happened, we formed a rule which stated that if you hit the ball further than 50 meters on the full you were awarded 20 runs. It was seen as an extenstion on the "in the gutter for 6" rule. However, it hasn't happened since, so we've never had to use the rule.
