Xtreme Baseball (Double Diamond Baseball) is a patented (USPTO) game that was created in 2006 and introduced to the public in 2007 through a series of exhibition games that were held in the central Florida area. In  2008 the  leagues Florida South Division's had its official inaugural season with four teams competing and continued its second season in 2009.  Both seasons  proved to be successful among the players and fans involved validating this new sports as an exciting legitimate way to play baseball.

In 2010, the NXBL began its 4th season.  The league  utilized a new variation of the original extreme Format for its 2010 season called "Double Diamond" The newer format has proven to be the most accepted version among the players and fans. This format maintains the integrity of traditional baseball at the same time enhancing the games excitement level by creating more base running and fielding scenarios. The 2011 season marks the 5th season which may  include expansion teams/divisions in the NE and other US regions.  The long-term goal of the NXBL is to have World-Wide recognition of the sport,  television coverage in the United States and Abroad, and team ownership in major cities in which teams will compete on a Regional and National level.

Field Layout and General Rules


To modify an ordinary baseball field to play Double Diamond Baseball  is very easy to set up. We utilize field tested applications in order to transform an ordinary baseball field easily to the modifications necessary to play this format. These modifications can be done in approx. 30 minutes  which  do not alter or cover any of the pre existing grass areas of the field and also does not require any changes made to the existing pitchers mound or home plate. (new revised field set up) Furthermore, none of the modifications made cause any damage to the pre exiting field in any way and can easily be brought back to its original state in approx. 30min. The simplicity of the general field setup can be compared to how fields are switched from baseball to softball modifications and dimensions. 


The game was created by Phil Weidner who has played baseball for over 30 years. His love for the game of baseball began when he was just three years old as he watched his father play Semi-Professional ball in his hometown of Alexandria, VA. After the Weidner family moved south to Omrond Beach, Florida in 1967, Phil followed in the tradition of most boys his age by playing little league. From that time forward, he has been hooked on the game. The love of the sport as a child, developed into a dream to someday become a professional baseball player. The passion remained with Phil as he continued to play through high school and into adulthood in a local, men's amateur baseball league. In 2006, he created Xtreme Baseball. One of his main motivations for creating the game was to even the playing field for left handers. With the new game format, left handers can  play the same positions as right handers. Finally, in 2007, the National Xtreme Baseball League was created and introduced to fans of all ages. Phil respects traditional baseball full heartily with the  intent  to compliment traditional baseball by providing an alternative way to play and watch the game.

The NXBL uses the Servant-Leadership method which  is a practical philosophy which supports people who choose to serve first, and then lead as a way of expanding service to individuals and institutions. Servant-leaders may or may not hold formal leadership positions. Servant-leadership encourages collaboration, trust, foresight, listening, and the ethical use of power and empowerment. Robert Greenleaf, the man who coined the phrase, described servant-leadership in this way. “The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. He or she is sharply different from the person who is leader first, perhaps because of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions. For such it will be a later choice to serve – after leadership is established. The leader-first and the servant-first are two extreme types. Between them there are shadings and blends that are part of the infinite variety of human nature. The difference manifest itself in the care taken by the servant-first to make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served. The best test, and difficult to administer , is: do those served grow as persons; do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged in society; will they benefit, or, at least, will they not be further deprived?”
