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.

Alternates
Any players not on the draft list (late entrants, or entrants beyond the limit) will be placed into an alternate player pool. If, at any point before the draft takes place, a player gets hurt or cannot attend the tournament, replacement players (alternates) will be assigned to the body of the draft according to their player status (male/female eddie, core) and in the order with which they signed up to play. If, at any point after the draft but before the tournament begins, a drafted roster player gets hurt or cannot attend the tournament, alternates will be assigned on a relatively random basis. Should a team need a replacement player after the draft is complete, a list of comparable players to the player being replaced will be formed and posted along with their 3-digit numbers. This list may contain players of marginally greater/lesser skills than the originally drafted player(s). Using the last 3 digits of the official attendance of a MLB game and comparing that to the alternate's 3-digit number, a replacement player will be determined. The alternate with the 3-digit number that comes closest to the last 3 digits of that game's attendance (+/-), will be assigned to that team. 000 will follow 999. Once tournament day arrives, all rosters are frozen and substitutions of any kind are strictly prohibited.
