Teams will field 10 players for the ballgame.
A team can score a maximum of five (5) runs per inning throughout the ball game.
Coaches: 4 coaches/adults are allowed within the confines of the field and dugout.
The Infield Fly Rule is in effect.
All runners must touch all bases unassisted. A coach may not assist (by touching) a player running the bases. Interpretation will be at the discretion of the umpire.
In the umpires’ judgment, if no runners are in a position to advance to the next base, time will be called.
Bases are closed. Base runners are not allowed to lead off. They can steal after the pitch has crossed the plate.
There will be one (1) warning per team on slinging a bat. The next time a batter on the same team slings a bat, an out will be called. The slinging of a bat is to be interpreted by the umpire.
Bats - See All League Rules for Bat Equipment Guidelines.
The manager must remove the pitcher when said pitcher reaches the limit as noted below:
