Now Kids as Young as 3 Years Old Can Be A Part of The PAL Astros Experience

BlastBall!®      or as we like to call it  at PAL- BLASTROS Ball !!

 

Baseball is still America’s pastime, with over 47.5 million kids under 18 years of age participating in organized youth leagues across America.

BlastBall!®provides an ideal entry level of play for the youngster who will go on to other advanced levels of the game.   

It is designed to generate fast-paced action, provide recreation and exercise, create enthusiasm and generate excitement for the game of baseball for the youth participants in the game.

 

BlastBall!® teaches all five basic fundamentals of baseball and softball…hitting, throwing, catching, running and fielding. It is also just a ton of fun with fast and continuous action and simple rules.

 

BlastBall!® is played with a maximum of 5 players per team. A smaller number, such as 2-3 players per team works equally well.

The defensive players take an infield or outfield position. A BlastBall is placed on the BlastTee and the first batter hits the ball and runs to the BlastBase. If the batter reaches the Base (the only base used) before a defensive player either catches the BlastBall in the air (an automatic out) or fields it and yells "BLAST ", he scores a run. If the ball is caught or fielded and "BLAST " is yelled before the runner gets to the BlastBase, then the runner is out. It’s just that simple!

 

You may end the (half) inning by batting once around the line-up or making 3 outs. For younger players it is recommended that everyone bat, every inning and you may not even want to keep score.
 

The BlastBase is audible, emitting a loud "H O N K " that the kids love whenever the runner stomps on the base. When fielded, the defensive player can simply throw the BlastBall back to another player or an adult/coach  Gloves can be used but are not needed because of the softness and size of the Ball. The fear factor of being hit is eliminated from the game all together. While batting helmets are not needed because the BlastBall is not being pitched or thrown to make the out, for optimum safety helmets can be used.

 

The cost is only $60 and sign up is done completely online. There are no practices and games are held Saturday mornings at PAL Park. Sign up today and tell everybody that PAL is the place to be for all of the fun that is... PAL  BLASTROS Ball!
