TOURNAMENT RULES ARE LISTED BELOW:
Tournament Format: 4 game guarantee; 2 hour time limit or 7 innings, whichever comes first; games can end in a tie.
The mercy rules for the tournament - 15 runs after 4 innings / 10 runs after 5 innings / 8 runs after 6 innings.
National Federation Rules will govern play except where otherwise provided in these rules.
Major League Baseball rules govern pitching visits and changes (pitcher will be replaced on the second visit in any inning).
A player may pitch a maximum of 7 innings over the course of the entire tournament. A game card will be kept by the umpires for each game.
Teams provide all game balls (At least 2 new and 1 used ball).
Coin flip will determine home team for every game.
Teams may utilize a DH, an EH and/or XH for lineups. Teams may also bat all players in a game. If a team elects the DH/EH/XH, they must use a roster substitute as courtesy runners. If a team elects to bat their entire lineup, they will use the last batted out as courtesy runners.
In the event of inclement weather, the Tournament Director reserves the right to modify any aspect of the tournament / game format.
If a coach is ejected from a game and leaves the field immediately and without incident, then they will be able to coach in the team’s next scheduled game. If a coach is ejected from a game and fails to immediately leave the field and/or causes an incident, then they will not be permitted to participate in any of the remaining games of the team for the remainder of the tournament. All decisions are at the discretion of the umpires officiating the game in which the ejection occurred and the Tournament Director.
A team may file a protest on rules violations or player eligibility only. Protests will not be accepted regarding any judgment calls made by umpires. Only the head coach of the team will be permitted to file a protest. To file a protest, a one hundred dollar ($100.00) cash payment will be made to the Tournament Director, along with an explanation of the rule violation in question immediately upon presumed violation occurring. Upon filing of the protest, the final ruling will be rendered as quickly as all facts can be determined. If the final decision supports the team filing the protest, the $100.00 protest fee will be returned to the team and the appropriate sanction will be invoked. If the final decision does not support the team filing the protest, then the protest fee will be forfeited.
