Rules Of Scorekeeping

Below is an overview of basic score keeping rules applicable to the game of baseball/softball. A simple once-over will give you a relatively good understanding of how the game is scored.

Re: Men's / Coed League Sub Scenarios / Effects

The sub rules are complicated. They are also a necessary evil. Without rules and regulations governing what short-handed teams can and can't do with their rosters, unscrupulous managers would consistently gain unfair advantages over full roster teams.
