New Rules (highlights)

FALL TIME LIMIT - No inning can start after 50 minutes, but you can finish the inning you are in if you already started it.  There is no time limit for playoff games.

Regular season rainouts will not be made up, as was the case last fall.  We don't have the time.

Please read the rules link, especially the roster rules.  New rules are highlighted in yellow.  The only 2 rules that affect game play are the addition of a courtesy runner (not to be confused with a rabbit runner or pinch runner) - 1 per gender, per inning (per team).  The other rule is the result of what happens if a fielder plays in beyond the cones/bases (result is an illegal pitch).

Note that we now require pictures (close up of face - no sunglasses) in electronic form of every rostered player before they play.  You can e-mail or text those to George Gibson (see contact us link).  Please indicate whose picture you are sending in the text or e-mail.  Those can also be put on a CD or thumb drive and given to George Gibson.

Immediately upon completion of the game, scorebooks must be signed by the opposing team captain.  The opposing team captain may take a picture of the opposing team’s lineup, if they wish.

Each player's first name and last initial (or last name, if more than one person has the same first name and last initial) must be written clearly in the lineup.  Failure to do so will result in no game credit being awarded to that player.  Initials cannot be written in after the opposing captain has signed the book and may not be verbally (or otherwise) communicated to the league.  Nicknames will no longer be accepted.

If a player is listed but did not bat, please note that on the scoresheet.

To be eligible for the playoffs, players must play two games (for fall ball) - no exceptions (including injuries).  One at bat constitutes a game played.

Teams have until The Monday after the halfway point of the season (game 3) to add players
to their roster.  All roster changes must be submitted to the league.  Finalized rosters will be posted online prior to the resumption of the second half of the season.

ASA Rules: Only the (game-day) captain may question the umpire. Players other than the captain who question calls can be subject to ejection.  No one can question balls and strikes, including arc.

If it has rained the night before, all captains must bring a rake and arrive early to prepare the field

If a team forfeits twice in one season for any reason other than not reporting a score or as a result of an ejection your team will be out of the league with no refunds.

ASA Rule: After a player is ejected, a team may NOT continue to play shorthanded. If no substitutes are available, the game is a forfeit.

ASA Rule: If a player has to leave the game for any reason other than ejection or the ASA blood rule and if no substitutes are available, their spot in the batting order is an automatic out.  This actually happened in our A Division Championship game.  If a player leaving the game is a runner or batter (if there are no substitutes), the runner or batter shall be declared out. 

ASA Rule: Players must maintain the same spot in the batting order at all times - they cannot be moved to another slot for any reason.
