e.        In the event of a tie score at the end of 5 innings or at the end of the last completed inning, each subsequent half-inning will begin with the batting team placing a runner on second base (the runner will always be the last batter to complete their turn from the previous inning) and two outs. Extra innings under these conditions, will be played until a winner is determined.

3.        Batting

f.        A batted ball that strikes the ceiling shall be considered fair or foul according to where the ball FIRST HITS the ground (NOT WHERE IT ROLLS)

c.        There must be a definite pause prior to beginning the pitching motion and delivery. Delivery must be made directly to home plate once the pitching motion begins. A stop or change of direction in the pitching motion will result in an illegal pitch.
d.        The pitcher may take only one step before releasing the ball and the pivot foot must remain in contact with the pitcher’s plate area for the duration of the pitch.
e.        There are no balks. Any deviation from pitching regulations shall result in an illegal pitch. A ball will automatically be called unless the batter swings. Should the batter swing, the illegal pitch call will be ignored and the result of the play will stand.

d.        Malicious contact by a base-runner with a fielder will result in an out and an automatic rejection.
e.        The runner or batter-runner will be out if the ball makes it to the base prior to the runner.
f.        The runner or batter-runner may be put out by being struck with a thrown ball below the player’s chest. Any thrown ball from a fielder which strikes the runner above this area shall be treated as an overthrow unless the runner caused this contact by altering their movement as to encourage being struck (interference). The fielder shall be ejected for any malicious attempt to injure a runner with a thrown ball or for striking a runner above the chest a second time in the same game. A warning will be issued following the first occurrence in addition to overthrow penalties.
g.        Interference is the act of an offensive player or team member which impedes or confuses a defensive player attempting to execute a play. Contact is not required. When this occurs, the ball is ruled dead and runners return to the last base touched and someone will be called out.
h.        Sliding is illegal and is a form of interference when it is an intentional act designed to avoid being put out and the runner’s hands and knees touch the ground.

b.        If the pitcher is removed from the pitching position, they may only return to this position one time. However, this player may remain in the game at another position.
c.        If a player leaves the game in favor of a substitute, that player may re-enter the game once, but only in the same batting position.
d.        If a substitute leaves the game, that player may not re-enter the game.
