New Rules (highlights)
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.
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.
If a player is listed but did not bat, please note that on the
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.
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.
Rule: Players must maintain the same spot in the batting order at all
times - they cannot be moved to another slot for any reason.
