FALL SEASON LOCAL RULES



AAA RULES


Game & Time Limits

Tie games will be played until time limit expires.

Time limit for all games is 1:30 minutes during the weekday and 1:45 minutes on the weekend.

No new inning will start after 7:00pm sharp for AAA.

A new inning begins as soon as the last out is made of the prior inning. 

Home plate umpire is responsible for keeping time, but will announce the start time to the booth. 

Weekday games are Monday-Friday, and weekend games are Saturday and Sunday. 

If you start a weekday game after 5:30pm, no new inning starts after 7:00pm.

If you start a weekday game before 5:30pm, (let’s say 5:20pm), no new inning starts after 6:50pm due to time limit.

Game Play

Continuous Batting Order: Teams will bat all batters in a continuous lineup.

Players cannot sit for consecutive innings.

Players cannot sit twice until all players have sat once.......with the exception of the starting pitcher, provided he has not been substituted from the pitching position and he has not reached his pitch count limit for the day or week.

 

Once a manager takes the starting pitcher out of the pitching position, he must go directly to the bench and sit a complete inning, provided he is the only player that has not sat an inning or there is one player that has sat twice. A complete inning consists of the start of an inning before warm up pitches are thrown, until the 3rd out of that inning is made.

 

If the manager takes the starting pitcher out of the game in the middle of an inning, and he is the only player that has not sat once or with one other player sitting twice, that starting pitcher must sit the remainder of the inning he was taken out plus the next complete inning.

 

Coaching on Defense: Coaches can coach in an imaginary box that extends 4 ft in front of their own dugout or in the imaginary box right outside the entrance of the dugout.  These imaginary boxes will be illustrated in the coaching clinic and discussed by the coaching coordinator.

The first 3 innings will continue until the offense has scored 5 runs or the defense has recorded 3 outs.

The 4th inning and on will be played with unlimited runs or until the game reaches the designated time limit.

A complete game consists of 4 innings or 3 ½ innings with the home team ahead.

10 run rule is in effect from the 4th inning on

 

Pitch Count Rules

40 pitches max (with threshold)

Days of rest apply - GREEN BOOK (page 42)
