t. Any runner stealing or going into home plate must slide if there is a play at the plate to avoid/minimize contact.  This rule is to help minimize collision's and protect players from injury.  If there is contact between the runner and defender that the umpire deems to be excessive, the runner will be called out.  
u. A base on balls is considered a dead ball and the batter is allowed first base only. Base runners can advance only if forced.

d. A maximum of 5 outfielders will be allowed during tournament games. Additional players will remain in the dugout. No player will be allowed to sit out a second inning until all players have sat out 1 inning. (Having 5 outfielders is 11 total players and is consistent with regular season rule)
e. The three-inning rule is in effect for pitchers in tournament games regardless of the number of innings played. (see rule 5-j)



Wallen Executive Board and its governing boards of baseball and softball make the decision on the position of umpires in the division that umpires are needed. Wallen evaluates on a regular basis if positioning needs adjusted, from behind the mound to if more than 1 umpire is needed.

Rules are subject to change due to any extraordinary situation. Any rule changes will be determined and approved by the Executive Board of Wallen.
