    • ANY dispute of the rules shall be handled by the coaches only during the game (NO PARENTS OR SPECTATORS SHALL SUBMIT A DISPUTE)

    • ALL head coaches MUST report their teams scores. We expect to receive score from both teams. Any games without scores reported will go down as a 7-7 tie.

    • Home team is official scorer, please validate score between innings with other teams scorekeeper. ANY and ALL disputes shall be directed to the umpire crew at the time of the score challenge.

  • Batting (section 2)

    • Pool Play Games - The following batting line-ups are allowed.

      • Straight 9 and/or DP/Flex - Teams may bat 9 players with or without the DP/Flex.

      • Continuous Order - When batting “up to” all roster players, any additional batter(s) shall be listed as an EP and may be listed anywhere in the batting order and may play defense as any position.

        • Example - A team may choose to bat 11 players and list one additional player as a substitute. A team is NOT required to bat all 12 players.

    • Elimination Games

      • Teams may use “straight 9” or DP/Flex. Both lines may use only one EP in their lineup (a max batting order of 10 players).

  • Tiebreakers - Single elimination seeded brackets will be set using the following:

  1. Rank teams by winning percentage

    • If two teams are tied, compare head to head win-loss. If more than 2 teams are tied, skip this step

  2. If teams are tied, rank based on fewest runs allowed per game

  3. If teams are tied, rank based on most runs scored per game

  4. If teams are tied, a coin toss is used
