Blitzballs are made of high-quality polyurethane material that is soft and durable. They come in a variety of colors and styles, so there's one out there for every player. The ball has a special coating on it that makes it fly farther and better. It is recommended for play between 100 and 120 miles per hour.
Where do you get them? You can find blitzballs at most major retailers that carry baseballs such as Walmart, Target, K-Mart, etc. They also sell them online at places like Amazon and eBay.
Are they legal? In most states yes, they are legal because they weigh less than 3 ounces.

Why should I use a blitzball instead of a regular baseball? With a normal baseball, the harder you throw it, the farther it will go.
Say it with me: PauseBlitzball is the New Wiffle Ball. Blitzball is ideal for baseball players who wish to practice hitting curve balls for both professional and recreational purposes. When playing a game of Blitzball, parental supervision is suggested, as it is with other games involving balls and bats.
Here at Baseball America we know there are many different types of ball games played throughout the world. In fact, there are more than 300 distinct ball games played worldwide. The most popular in the United States is probably baseball, but there are also hockey, soccer, softball, and frisbee golf. Here in the United States, baseball is known as "America's Pastime." But even though it has been around for over 100 years, it continues to grow in popularity.
Like any other sport, baseball requires some type of ball to be played. There are two main types of baseballs used in the United States: cork and latex. Latex balls are more durable and tend to last longer between uses. Cork balls are softer and slightly lighter. They get flattened out under heavy use like in football or rugby games where they don't feel like a real ball anymore. But they can be refilled with new rubber and used again and again.
Cork balls were originally made from the skin of pigs, but now are mostly made from milk products.
Bluizball takes the concept of Wiffleball and makes it a little more intense. It's essentially the same game with the same rules. The bat and ball combination, on the other hand, is intended to provide more curving motion, speed, and home run distance than the Wiffle ball. On average, the ball will go 50% farther than a wiffle ball. One downside to bluizball is that it can be harder to keep in play; because there is no rubber band to hold the ball in place, it's easier for it to get lost under foot.
Bluizball was created in 2002 by two brothers who were frustrated by the limited range and lack of power of wiffle balls. They decided to create their own version which would have greater distance and carry. They named the new ball after the Japanese sword brand that sponsors their team.
Wiffle ball is now owned by the North American Wiffle League (NAWL). The NAWL was founded in 1948 by Joe Hoerner as a way for small towns to have a chance at winning baseball games. There are currently more than 70 teams in five states: Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and Florida.
During World War II, ball games came to a halt because all the players and coaches wanted to help with the war effort so they could go to military training camps or serve in the armed forces themselves.
This plastic ball and bat set's patent-pending design provides maximum curve, speed, and distance. Blitzballs are safe for regular usage and are created in the United States.
The initial game's ball wasn't really a ball at all; it was a boxing glove twisted into a more spherical form and whacked with a broomstick. The rules got more defined as the game progressed, and the game was transferred outside. In addition to the 16-inch softball favoured for the Chicago style, softballs with 11- and 12-inch circumferences are now utilized. These balls are hit with a bat designed for use with a ball of that size.
As early as 1869, patents were being issued for inventions related to the modern baseball. One such invention was an iron ball covered with leather for durability and comfort. This was later replaced by a rubber ball. Softball as we know it today originated in the mid-19th century when women began playing baseball on men's teams in Illinois and Wisconsin. The women's play attracted attention from local politicians who outlawed the sport because they believed boys would be distracted from their studies if forced to focus on something other than school work. As a result, many communities stopped holding girls' baseball tournaments - until someone came up with an idea that would change the game forever.
That person was William A. Lunt, who had a vision one day while watching his seven daughters play baseball. He imagined what would happen if a girl could throw a ball harder than anyone else on the field. The next day he took out some rubber balloons and had his wife sew some holes in them for air circulation. He then had his children help him inflate the balls by blowing into them.
Dodgeball is now played with various rules modifications, including the form and size of the court and the number of balls utilized. Rubber balls and other non-lethal projectiles are, thankfully, employed exclusively. These balls are commonly inflated by blowguns and guns similar to air rifles.
The original game of dodgeball was played on a lawn or athletic field using a ball made from wool or cotton stuffed with feathers. This ball was hard to hit hard enough to cause injury with, which is why people often asked if it was rubber when they saw players with them on the court. The answer is no, it's not rubber; it's just a soft ball that doesn't break like glass does.
In 1879, Charles Morrill invented a new type of ball called "Bocce" that is still used today in some countries. This ball is much smaller than a volleyball and is designed for use on clay courts. It is also used in tennis ball competitions known as "Battleship Doubles".
In 1912, William F. Nims invented the modern dodgeball as we know it today. He called his version "Mass Ball Dodgeball" and it was played on a soccer field with 15 balls per side. The object was to get one's opponent out by throwing or hitting the ball at him/her.
