Most of us have heard of extreme sports, there are television stations devoted to extreme sports such as snowboarding and skateboarding and dirt bike racing, even the XFL tried presenting extreme football in front of a national audience. That only lasted a short time, but now we have extreme baseball.

Orlando has a team; they're called the Dragons. Recently they hosted the Miami Pythons. Baseball evolved is one way to put it, there are two catchers on the field at the same time, two sets of bases, and two separate sets of defenses. One team runs one way, while the other runs the opposite. Sometimes the players forget which way to run.

Miami gets on the board the unconventional way - clockwise around the bases. The game also focuses on efficiency. Instead of taking three hours to typically finish a major league game, these games are usually under two hours. They are a bunch of new concepts all rolled into one production.
