Double Elimination Play
Teams will flip for home team 15 minutes prior to the game at the Board Member’s table or on the field after the previous game has concluded.
The top two teams that have moved into double elimination play will flip for the first game. The team that was designated as home team for the first game will be visitor the second game. If a third game has to played, a coin toss will determine home for that game.
- Coaches may combine for the purpose of coaching a team if no more than four players are involved and if all players register together at walk-in registration. The group of four players can contain no more than a total of 2 players that are designated as a pitcher or catcher. (Max per group = 1 pitcher & 1 catcher, or 2 – pitchers, or 2 – catchers.) The Board must verify all four-player requests (including coach combination requests) each season.
Time limit/Drop Dead Rule
- T-Ball games are 55 minutes. 8u and Slow Pitch games are 65 minutes. All remaining age groups are 75 minutes or seven innings whichever occurs first (except for tied games during tournament play). The inning in progress when time expires will be completed with the exception of 10U which will have a 90 minute drop dead time at which time, the score will revert back to the last completed inning. If a game is called for weather or circumstances beyond the control of the Board, a legal game shall be 5 innings (or 4 1/2 innings if the home team is ahead).
