2019 Little League and Local Rules Resources

Know the rules. Little League rules are sometimes different than the MLB rules. You can pick up a 2019 Little League Rule Book at the snack bar for a few bucks. 

Also, Alameda Little League has some local rules that the Board of Directors has chosen to implement. Did you know that a pitcher in AA can pitch only 2 innings while a Majors pitcher can pitch an entire game (provide they stay below the daily maximum pitch count for their age)?  Press this link to read the 2019 Local Rules and Pitching Guidelines.
