Local Rules & Other Rule Info



Spring season (February through June) info:

All local rules are in the document below.  It also contains by-laws and other important documents pertaining to the league.  If you need just pieces of this document, print just the pages you would like.


By-Laws and Local Rules (approved 2/16/2018) (note: on 3/5/2018, a typo was found where the JV drop dead time was inconsistently noted in two different places.  An updated version was uploaded to reflect the 2hr drop dead time in JV consistently. note: on 3/17, a misinterpretation was found with majors rules that implied that a 5 run rule exists in majors when it does not.  An updated version was uploaded to remove the reference so as to be clear that there is no 5 run rule in majors)
