If a POOL PLAY game ends in a tie with TIME REMAINING, only 1 EXTRA INNING will be played. If the game remains tied after that extra inning is played, the game will end in a tie. In the case of a tie, each team will receive ½ a loss and ½ a win.
  • Playoff games will continue to follow the 2-hour time limits, except for the Semi-Final and Championship games. Rule is subject to change.

Protests: 

  • A protest is only available for a violation or misapplication of a rule, not for coach/fan/player disagreement with an umpire’s judgement call (ie. ball and strikes, out and safe). Pitching limitations are not eligible for protest. Protests must be filed and ruled on before the next pitch if during a game, or before umpires leave field if after a game. The team protesting must make cash payment of $100 at the time of protest and the protest will only be heard and ruled upon by the tournament committee.

Any physical altercation between two teams before, during, or after a contest could result in the removal of both teams from the remainder of the event and future events.

Ejections: 

  • Any player, coach, manager, spectator and fan that is ejected from a game shall be suspended and removed for the remainder of that game only. Any individual ejected must leave the complex and exit to the parking lot. *If a team is hitting a continuous lineup, the ejected player’s spot in the lineup will remain and his team is forced to take an out. Any player or coach that acts maliciously or performs an act with intent to injure, the tournament committee has the final say in the penalty for that individual(s). Any individual that gets ejected for a second time in a tournament shall be removed and eliminated from participating in the remainder of that tournament.

 

Hitting Lineups: 

  • All coaches/teams must turn in a lineup card to the umpire at the plate meeting prior to the start of each game. Once the first pitch has been thrown, the number of batters must stay the same for the entire game and the lineup is locked in.

  1. Hit 9 hitters with a DH or no DH. We will honor the High School DH Rule.
  2. Use one EH and hit 10 with or without a DH
  3. Use one EH and XH and hit 11 with or without a DH.
15u and up will play by a modified College DH rule where the pitcher can be P/DH. (This means that once you pull the pitcher out of the game he can remain in the batting order as the DH.) (Can DH for anyone, not limited to the pitcher)  

            *In the situations 1 and 2, you will have to follow high school substitution rules.*

If a team has multiple non rostered players participate, this will result in a forfeit. Once a player plays in the event,  Each manager is responsible for all aspects of his roster and must carry photocopies of birth certificates and/or high school transcripts to provide proof.
