When there's more to the game than "Safe" or "Out"

ASK AN UMP!
Once ENLL's children are a bit beyond Tee Ball where 'no one makes an out' and 'everyone scores', it's important for them - and YOU! - to understand the rules of the game.

THIS IS THE PLACE! where you can go to broadly review some of Little League's key rules and ask a question if need be. Keep in mind that the rules cited here in the 'Rules of the Game' section are only excerpts from "Little League® Regulations and Rules for Baseball Divisions - 2017" and its 208 pages. If you can't find the answer to your rules question in 'Rules of the Game', click ASK AN UMP! under the umpire on the right to email your query to a District 22 umpire (feel free to start your email with "What the heck's a District 22 umpire?!?") that's been in baseball for more than 35 years.
