Inclement Weather Policy

In the event of rain, we will do everything within our power to make up games and stay as close to the original game schedule as possible. However, there may be circumstances in which we will need to deviate from the released schedule. If and when this occurs, we will use the following procedures as a guide:

If inclement weather or other scenarios forces a cancellation of game slots during pool play rounds; we may have to alter the brackets to complete the tournament. If an elimination game cannot be played, the team with the higher seed will advance.

Balls to be provided, however it is expected that all foul balls are returned to umpire. Please ensure your parents, fans etc… return all foul balls.


8u through 12u:  No new inning can start after 1 hour 45 min
13u – 18u:  No new inning can start after 2 hours.
Pool play games can end in a tie, single elimination games must have a winner.
Championship games have no time limit.
First pitch is the start of the time limit to last out of an inning.

If a game runs past scheduled start of next game, start time should be no longer than 10 minutes after previous game finishes.

A game is considered official after 3 complete innings for 8U-12U and 4 complete innings for 13U and older. If a game is suspended due to weather or other situations the game will be resumed as soon as possible. If the game is unable to be resumed the result will be based off of the last completed inning. If an inning is in progress the result will revert to the last completed inning, unless the home team is winning or took the lead in the bottom half of the inning when the game was called. There are circumstances during pool play that a game result may be determined prior to official inning count. Example: lightning delay in 2nd inning causes the game unable to be finished. Game may count as the result after 2 innings as decided by tournament officials.

If all three teams played each other use head-to-head results

If one team beat all of the other tied teams they will get the highest seed among the tied teams,

Teams will have the discretion to select one of the following options that must be declared prior to the start of the game. Further, this option must be utilized for the entire game.

Roster size is 14 players max.

Bat the entire lineup

Bat nine

Bat ten, utilizing an Extra Player (EP). You may only use one EP.

If you are batting the entire lineup, there is NO out taken if a player must leave the game providing the lineup does not go below nine players.


If a team does not bat the entire lineup and substitutes are available, we use the standard re-entry rule.  Starters may be re-entered once as long as the player occupies their original position in the batting order.  The sub is not eligible to re-enter the game once he is removed.

For ages 14U and older, defensive substitutions are allowed at any time regardless of what lineup you are batting meaning a player that is not in the batting lineup can enter the game defensively at any time.



11u/12u – 1 warning per pitcher. A balk warning is a dead ball.
13u – 18u – no warnings given
The fake to third, throw to first pick off move will NOT BE allowed.



8u – 2 innings max per pitcher. Other age groups do not have limits on innings pitched, however should follow pitch smart guidelines found here: https://www.mlb.com/pitch-smart/pitching-guidelines.

Team is allowed two mound visits per inning by coach, second visit and pitcher must be replaced. Mound visit must be less than one minute. Also once a pitcher is removed they cannot pitch again in the same game. BE SMART & RESPONSIBLE WITH YOUR PLAYERS ARMS.



With 2 outs, a courtesy is required for your catcher going into the game defensively the next half inning. The courtesy runner must be the last batted out. Please have a coach ready to warm up your pitcher between innings if your catcher is getting his gear on. If batting 9 or 10 with subs there is no courtesy runner.



Speed up rule – The pitcher or manager may inform the umpire their intention to walk the batter to first base. Pitches do not have to be thrown



No slash bunts/butcher boys at any age group. Batter is called out if this occurs.



Umpires discretion on malicious contact. Slide or veer if defensive player in possession of ball on a force play at 2B (direct into bases on slides). No blocking of a base by defensive players, both runner and defensive player should seek to avoid a collision. If, in the judgment of the umpire, contact is intentional and avoidable, player ejection may occur.
No headfirst slides 8U-10U except when going back to bag from less than half way to next base.
Head first slides accepted at 11U and up except at home, must be feet first. However, player can touch home with hand as long as it is a feet first slide. 13U and older head first is aloud, but not recommended at home.



These games are just that, GAMES. We checked with MLB and the NCAA, they aren’t sending scouts or coaches out. Inappropriate behavior from coaches, spectators and parents simply will not be tolerated. If any adult is ejected from a game, whether a coach or parent, that individual will be banned from the complex for the remainder of the tournament. There is no appeals process. The judgment of the umpires and the Washington Twp Tournament Committee as to what constitutes inappropriate behavior is final.



We will follow the 8u TSE playing rules for that age group. No straight steal attempts, 4 run max per inning, 5 attempted advances per inning on wild pitches/passed balls. Please review the TSE playing rules for 8u here –


All other rules not covered here will be based on Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth Baseball.
