Yeah, so, just Wiffle ball wasn’t cutting it anymore (or, we had enough requests), so we finally did a Blitzball review. I must tell you that it’s seriously impressive. After giving it a go, we’re certain that both Wiffle and Blitzball can co-exist peacefully in the world of backyard bat and ball sports. Blitzball affords those with a little more baseball background (or in Jason’s case, pedigree) a bit more creativity. The Blitzball moves like a baseball, and is easier to control. We actually found that moving our mound back to 45 feet from 40 provided the best combination of hitting and pitching.
Another serious reason to take a good look at the Blitzball is this, you can buy a bat/ball starter combo for $22 (bat, 2 blitzballs, instructional DVD). The thing is, the bat is the exact bat you get from buying a Ken Griffey bat, but in blue. So, to summarize, for $1 less, you get the same bat as the Louisville C271, two new Blitzballs AND an instructional DVD. It’s my new favorite recommendation for the question, “I have twenty bucks for bat/ball sports gear, what should I buy?” In my opinion, this purchase is a no-brainer if you want a great bat, because it gives you the opportunity to expand your game.
Blitzball is here to stay, the company is growing quickly and I believe that it’s going to build itself into a long time player in the backyard of America. Check out the article in Wiffler’s Digest that examines the Blitzball through an interview with the owner/founder.
