Spikeball gaining popularity

Ever hear of the sport Spikeball? Not too many people have but it is growing in popularity around the country thanks in large part to the efforts of a young Chicago entrepreneur. Think the old school yard games of foursquare or volleyball without the net, and instead - a mini trampoline. it was a game that Chris Ruder bought at a Toys R Us store years ago and now the game has teams across the country and a National Championship. We talk with Ruder about the origins of the game and his winning investment on the TV show Shark Tank. (Flickr/Elvert Barnes)
