  •   During the season, each player must play two (2) complete games defensively. 
  •   All players shall appear in the batting lineup. This means free substitution throughout the game (If a child starts the inning in the field, he must finish the inning in the field. This rule does not apply to injuries or pitchers) 
  •   Teams will have free defensive substitutions. However, NO player can be a defensive bench substitute for more than one (1) consecutive inning in any game. 


 No new inning may begin after 1 hour and 50 minutes of play. In the event of a tie, extra innings may be played if time limit has not been reached. 


 A courtesy runner may be used for the pitcher and catcher. This runner must be a player who is not currently in the game. If nine (9) or less players are present, the last batted out may be used. 


  •   11yr must pitch 1 complete inning or 3 consecutive outs per game (including playoffs). 
  •   Pitch count for the pitchers will be 75 pitches per game. (This will be strictly enforced)
