Blazeballis very similar to baseball, but it is played at a much faster pace. Players are given multiple opportunities in the field and at the plate during each game. Blazeball was created to give kids who enjoy baseball the opportunity to play a full game in half the time. The game is played on a traditional Little League infield with the traditional infield positions (1B, 2B, 3B, SS and P). The biggest difference is there are NO outfield positions played. There is NO kid pitch in this league to ensure a fast pace. Teams are comprised of 6-7 players per team. The season will start on 9/25 and end on 11/13 with the last two weeks being playoff or consolation games. All games are on Sundays between 8 AM -1 PM. There are two divisions, 7/8 and 9/10/11 (determined by their previous spring Little League age). The games are 50 minutes each. Every team makes the playoffs, which will wrap the last 2 weeks of the Fall Season.
Little League International has changed the way ages are calculated for little league purposes. This change impacts only some players. For players born on or after September 1, 2005, the age determination date has been moved from April 30 to August 31. For players born on or before August 31, 2005, there is no change to the Little League age rules – these players will continue to use the April 30 age determination date.
This age change impacts all little leagues, not just Del Mar American.
