Consequently, WIFFLE® ball can be enjoyed by a wide array of age categories without fear of injury to any participant or bystander, whether the playing area is in a backyard, picnic area or populated spaces. The game has enjoyed increasing popularity since its first patent sale of the patented product in 1959, and is now being enjoyed in competitive organized leagues . With the difficulty of coordinating 9 players per team, totaling 18, for each game, baseball and softball games have become increasingly challenging to coordinate during these social times to a designated time where all 18 players can attend. Therefore, WIFFLE® ball provides an alternative, offering the simulation of a baseball game in a more accessible format with fewer necessary players. Another demand on the market is to provide a practice pitching target and backstop that enables a pitching practice specifically for WIFFLE balls and other plastic baseballs.

The use of baseballs, softballs or tennis balls could cause damage to the board.
