  • Coach Pitch – New trial in 2016 – Coaches will pitch every other inning starting in the 2nd inning from the start of the season until June 12th. This will allow batters to learn to swing the bat and give time for coaches to develop more pitchers. Coaches will act like a pitching machine. Players can strike out but no walks will be granted. Umpires will still call balls and strikes while coach is pitching.
  •  Call-Up’s – If Rookie ball players are used as call-up’s they are not allowed to pitch.
  •  Last Inning -  The first inning to start 90min from the scheduled start time will be the last inning. Hard cap on game time is 2 hours from scheduled start time. If last inning is not completed resort back to score from last completed inning.
  •  Run Max – 7 run max/inning. Last inning is not unlimited. Final inning will be played regardless of score.
  •  Mosquito – 6 inning games. Mercy rule is 10 runs after 4 innings & 18 runs after 3 innings.
  •  Rain – Game will be considered official after 4 innings or 60 minutes in the case of a rainout. If teams did not complete 4 innings or 60 minutes the game will be rescheduled and played in full on another date.
