“Shore” as traditional pastoral game

Description

Banat “Shore” is a traditional pastoral game that was once played in Vojvodina and is still played today in Serbian part of Banat, in the village of Tomaševac. Whether because of the preservation of tradition or because of the passion for a game similar to American baseball, the Banat “Shore” resist. For 19 years, the “world championship” of this game has been regularly organized.

This ancient game or “running ball” was played in the mornings, during the breaks of keeping the herd, and in Tomaševac during the breaks of building houses.

The word “shora” comes from Banat slang: “zašorati” or “šornuti“, which means to hit the ball. Banat “Shore” are still played with a hand-made ball, which is hit with a wooden stick – reminiscent of baseball. The team consists of 10 players, played on a wide field, with the first line marked – BASE 1 (cold girl) and the second line – BASE 2. 9 players of team A stand in the field and catch the ball that the players of team B hit in a row, and the tenth player of team A throws it at his opponents. A point is scored when the player of the striking team, after the shot, run the distance from BASE 1 to BASE 2 and back. If a player who runs is hit with a ball, teams exchange the roles.

Banatske “Šore”

Intention

For me, as a gym teacher, games with a long tradition are always interesting and important. I am thrilled that “Shore” reveals imminence between distant nations. With this example I want to remind all of us of our similarities and contribute to the further preservation of the ancient game.

Opis

Drevna pastirska igra Šora ili “lopta na beganje” igrala se na utrinama, u pauzama čuvanja stada, a u Tomaševcu u pauzama izgradnji kuća nabijača. Reč  “šora” potiče iz banatskog slenga: zašorati ili šornuti što znači udariti lopticu. Banatske šore i danas se igraju sa ručno pravljenom lopticom, koja se udara drvenim štapom, što podseća na američku igru bejzbol.  Ekipu čini 10 igrača, igra se na širokom terenu, sa obeleženom prvom linijom – BAZA 1 (cura) i drugom linijom – BAZA 2.  9 igrača ekipe A stoji raspoređeno u polju i hvata (keča) loptu koju igrači ekipe B redom udaraju tj. šoraju (odakle i potiče naziv za ovu igru), a deseti igrač ekipe A je podbacuje protivnicima. Poen se ostvaruje tako što igrač ekipe koja udara, nakon udarca, treba da pretrči rastojanje od BAZE 1 do BAZE 2 i nazad. Ako igrač koji pretrčava bude pogođen, ekipa koja je bila u polju prelazi da šora, a ekipa koja je šorala prelazi u polje.

Namera

Za mene, kao nastavnika fizickog vaspitanja  uvek su interesnatne i važne igre sa dugom tradicijom, a kod Šora me oduševljava što otkriva bliskosti između udaljenih naroda. Ovim primerom želim da nas sve podsetim na naše sličnosti i doprinesem daljem očuvanju drevne igre.
