Force Play Slide Rule - This is a safety rule as well as an interference rule.

10U-16U Divisions have three batting line-up options:

(1) Bat 9 players.

(2) Bat 10-12 players using Extra Hitter designations. An EH is considered a defensive player and may switch in and out defensively during the game.

(3) Bat entire roster – Free defensive substitution. If a player is injured or ejected, that spot in the batting order will be an automatic out the first time around and then compress.

NOTE: No Designated Hitter is allowed at any time. Starters may reenter one time only in their original batting order.

Courtesy runners will be allowed for the pitcher or catcher at any time in this order :

1) the courtesy runner must be a player who has not been in the game (substitute)

2) if there are no substitutes available the last batted out can be used as a courtesy runnerSame runner cannot run for both the pitcher and catcher in the same inning.

To intentionally walk a batter, pitches must be thrown.

Missed bases require an appeal play.

League Game Time Limits: Divisions 9-12 will play 6 innings time limits range between 1:30 to 1:45. The 13U-14U divisions will play 7 innings …  time limits range between 1:50 to 2:00.

In league play a tie stands and will not be played out.

For 1st & 2nd place league ending games ties will be played out in extra innings using the California Tie Breaker. A runner will start at second base. Runner cannot be a player who is or was in the game, even if they are a starter with reentry remaining. If a team has no substitution, then last batted out will be the runner. Game will be played until a winner is determined.

For seeding purposes, the value of a win is 1 point, the value of a tie is a 1/2 point, the value of a loss is 0 points.   

Run Rules: No run rule … so everyone gets in a full game. A game can be halted early if the managers of both teams agree to do so due to a one sided game or lack of players due to injuries.

Two new baseballs (Diamond, Wilson, Rawlings, etc.) will be provided by each team prior to the start of each game.

Any player, manager, coach or parent ejected from the game or after a game is concluded may carry an additional game suspension to be served at next scheduled game upon discretion of the tournament director and umpire in chief. Ejected managers, coaches or fans must leave the immediate area of the ball fields. They may remain in the parking lot. Managers are responsible for the conduct of his coaches, players and fans.

Player ejections that results in a team having less then 9 players, game will continue if the team has 8 eligible players, however an out will be taken when the ejected player is due to bat in the line-up. Teams falling short of 8 players due to player ejections will forfeit that game.

There will be a gate charge at Victory Lane Sports Park for adults and children age 13 and up. Hand stamps are needed to re-enter those parks during the day. The ball players and 2 coaches from each team will not be charged at the gate during the tournament.
