Enhancement 1 - Make baseballs fly across the screen.

To make baseballs fly across the screen. You only need one sprite to make many baseballs if you use the cloning function. First, just try cloning the baseball at random time intervals. 

Hint: You will not see the clone yet, it is pasted exactly over the original sprite. In the next step you will assign a movement to the baseball clone.

Enhancement 3- Make it a Game.  

Make "Game Over" when the baseball touches the Quizzy sprite. You can do this by sensing a "touching color" block and changing the background.

When choosing a color to make the animations stop, use the eyedropper feature to select your color from the Quizzy sprite.
