I think "Piggy in the Middle" is the same game as Monkey in the Middle or as Keepaway.

Growing up, I always knew Monkey in the Middle and Keepaway as two different games - the first was a real game, where if the person in the middle caught the whatever-it-was they switched with whoever had missed catching it and the game went on; and the second was not a game at all but a form of bullying. But I've been told not everybody had the same conventions.
