LINE UP RULE
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.
- Bat the entire lineup
- Bat nine
- Bat ten, utilizing an Extra Player (EP). You may only use one EP.
- If you are batting the order, 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.
There are no pitching limits for any age group.
With two outs a pinch runner should be used for your catcher. The player who made the last out will serve as the courtesy runner.
