2017 Tournament Rule Difference
Please feel free to open and print the Baseball and/or Softball rule difference charts on this site, when they become available, for the current season. This was at the request of the sites webmaster. Please make sure that your managers get and use a copy of each. This will help with their usefulness during tournaments.
But, in no way, do these difference preclude the reading and understanding of the published rule books.
Have a great tournament season.
