Similarly to dodgeball, it is traditionally played with a red rubber ball, but any kickable object is accepted. Traditional rules are similar to that of baseball (an infinitely inferior game, even if it is more popular). The chief difference is that in kickball you kick a ball, instead of, slightly homoerotically, swing at balls with your (wood) bat. Kickball also involves the fielders attempting to get out the runners by tagging them, or (for those with skill) pegging them. Knocking them over is a plus, but, unless otherwise agreed upon, offers no actual advantage. Other rules are followed if agreed upon.
A good kickball player will rule his/her respective playground or park. Or LEAGUE!
There are kickball leagues you can join. Just google it.

My 4th grade son loves football but plays kickball during PE because the teacher forces him.
