A Generous Advantage?

Blaster Ball is a deep-space competition in which two teams of astronauts use blaster guns loaded with harmless sticky blobs to knock a ball toward the opposite end of a pitch.

Blaster Ball pitches are always located out of the range of friction, air resistance, or significant amounts of gravity, which is more convenient for Blaster Ball strategists than for traveling fans. The trick for each team is to transfer as much momentum to the ball as possible with a limited number of shots that must be fired before the game clock runs down.
