1-Pitch Tournament Rules and Regulations

Post by sixofdiamonds » Sun Nov 19, 2017 8:58 pm

Tournament play will abide by ASA and SBA league rules with the following exceptions...

The eddie walk rule will not be observed.
A 2nd foul ball courtesy for eddies will not be observed.
Managers are required to bat all able-bodied roster members in all games without exception.
Managers are required to field all able-bodied roster members at least 2 defensive innings per game unless it is the player's choice to not play the field.
If, to start a game, your opponent has less than 13 players in their line-up (for whatever reason), you will have the option to play the same number of players in your line-up.
A mandatory team out will be imposed in any game where an ejected or suspended player would have appeared.
Games may start as early as 15 minutes before the posted game time. A forfeit will ensue if your team is not ready, willing, and able to take the field at game time or 15 minutes prior if the situation presents itself.
Trade deadlines are midnight of the Friday before the tournament.

The 4-4-3 eddie rule will apply - 4 eddies must be in your line-up, 4 eddies must play the field, 3 of the eddies in the field and line-up must, at all times, be female.This may change depending upon the number of females entering the tourney.
