      • Machine speed must be sent to 4 for games
      • Length of games: Each game will be 5 complete innings or 90 minutes long, whichever comes first.
      • A new inning cannot be started after 90 minutes; but a game can not last longer than 1 hour and 45 minutes.
      • If the visiting team is up to bat when the game reaches the 1 hour and 45 minute mark, the score reverts back to the last complete inning and the game is over.
      • The game time will start when the first pitch is thrown
      • If there is an overthrow at first base, base runners can advance one base at their own risk.
      • The first four innings of each game are capped at 5 runs. The fifth inning has unlimited runs.
      • There is a 10 run rule after the completion of 3 1/2 innings if home team is winning by 10 or more runs, the game is over. If the visiting team is winning by 10 or more runs after 4 innings, the game ends
      • Home team is in charge of chalking, scorebook, setting up the machine and providing balls.
      • An infielder can only play the infield for two consecutive innings. Positions may alternate between outfield and infield every inning. We strongly suggest a regular rotation that gives all players an opportunity to play both infield and outfield, taking into consideration skill level and safety concerns. Here is a rotation example:
        • Players are divided into 3 groups of 4. 1st inning group 1 plays the infield( 1st, 2nd,ss,3rd). Group 2 plays the outfield and group 3 plays pitcher and catcher with 2 kids on the bench. 2nd inning group 1 moves to outfield, group 2 to pitcher and catcher and group 3 to the infield. Each inning the coach should rotate the groups.
      • Each batter will get five hittable pitches.
      • When there is a bad pitch and the batter does not swing, the coach manning the machine raises his hand and calls no pitch. If the batter swings at the bad pitch the play will continue using normal baseball rules.
      • If there is a dispute, the coach who is running the machine is the umpire for that half inning and they make the out calls.
      • If there is a dispute during the game that cannot be worked out during the game, continue play, make clear that you will protest and then contact player rep after game.
      • Games will be played using a continuous batting order.
      • There will be unlimited substitutions, except for pitchers, as long as each player gets 6 consecutive outs in the field
      • If a player plays 4 defensive innings at catcher, that player cannot pitch.
      • Length of games: Games will last 6 innings or 1 hour and 45 minutes and they will have a drop dead time of 2 hours.
      • The first 4 innings of each game are capped at 5 runs. There are unlimited runs in the 5th and 6th innings
      • The pitcher is done pitching once they are removed from the mound during the game.
      • Male catchers must wear a protective supporter and cup at all times.
      • The home team is responsible for chalking the field, setting up the scorer’s box, turning on the score board, assigning an adult to operate the score board, keeping the game scorebook and getting 3 game balls from the concession stand and giving them to the umpire.
      • The visiting team is responsible for getting the pitch count form from the concession stand, maintaining the pitch count and turning it back to the concession stand at the end of the game.
      • If there is a dispute during the game that cannot be worked out during the game, continue play, make clear that you will protest and then contact player rep after game.
