Questions & Answers

What are the basics of how Double Diamond Baseball is played?

The new and Improved Double Diamond Baseball format is played on two interlocking baseball diamonds. The 1st batter in the lineup utilizes the traditional baseball diamond and runs the traditional counter clockwise direction. After the 1st bat is completed  the next batter then runs the opposite directions utilizing the added double diamond layout. The batters alternate directions after each at bat. The format creates intense multi directional base running situations which requires more concentration from the fielders. This version compliments traditional baseball very well at the same time increases the games excitement factor. This version will be utilized for the leagues 2010 season. See General Rules

This version is also very exciting to watch however the NXBL changed its format during it last year of operation using its simplified Double Diamond Format.
