BlastBall is an ideal way to introduce your youngster to the wonderful game of baseball. In BlastBall, the name of the game is HAVING FUN!! Team sizes are kept small which ensures lots of repetitions for the players (which improves development), as well as fast-paced action (for those short attention spans). The structure of the game is very simple, and can be picked up very quickly by the children. The players will find immediate success, which will result in enthusiasm for the sport, and ultimately enjoyment for the players. Foam bats and balls are used as the primary objective is to have fun and be safe, get used to catching, hitting and running.
BlastBall introduces all five of the basic fundamentals of baseball (& many other sports) :
- Gloves/mitts not required, but can be introduced.
- Batting helmets are not required, but for optimum safety, they are recommended
- Athletic supports are not needed.
- Shorts can be worn, but long pants are recommended.
- Uniforms & hats are provided.
