What is Blitzball?
Blitzball was invented by a baseball toy inventor who sought a way to create a ball with significantly more curve and velocity. This was achieved with a a unique shape and surface texture which results in 40% greater distance than a normal baseball when hit.
A game of Blitzball is similar to baseball in structure, with one team hitting to score runs while the other plays defense and tries to prevent runs. The pitcher will throw balls which the batter must hit with a plastic bat. Upon contact, the ball is in play and the runner runs the bases similar to baseball, scoring when they return to home plate. Blitzball games last three innings.
