City Tournament MAJORS Rules Clarification

City Tournament rules and Green Book regular season rules apply in all games. Local Rules DO NOT APPLY.

1. Green Book 4.10 (e) mercy rule (10 runs after 4 innings or 3 ½ for home team) and (15 runs after 3
innings or 2 ½ for home team) will be in effect.

2. Games will NOT have any time limits. Play according to Green Book rules 4.10, 4.11 & 4.12. If a winner
cannot be determined (i.e. the game was tied before becoming a regulation game and must be
continued), then the game will continue the next day at 3:30pm to declare a winner. Saturday games
will continue until a winner is determined. Note, this may delay the start of any following game.

3. The winner's bracket and first round of games will have the home team determined by their seed. The
home team will be awarded to the team with the better seed.

4. The consolation bracket games will have the home team determined by the team that lost in the later
round in the winner’s bracket. If both teams lost in the same round of the winner’s bracket, the
consolation bracket games will have the home team determined by a coin flip.

5. Regular season rule of home team having field duty does not apply to tournament games. BOTH home
and visitor must provide at least one representative to assist with field duty.

6. Third place will be the loser of the last game in the consolation bracket.

7. Pool Player will not be utilized during the City Tournament.

8. A continuous batting order will be in effect.

9. The one-foot in batter’s box will not be in effect.

10. The dropped third strike rule will be in effect.

11. All play must end at 9:25pm and continued to the following day, if necessary.

A few reminders:

1. Pitch count rules remain in effect for tournament play. Be aware of Green book rules for pitchers.

2. Make sure you are familiar with the Green Book mercy rule as this was not in effect for the regular
season but will be in effect for tournament play.t

3. When managers meet with the umpire before the game, please be sure they know any revised rules
for the tournament.

4. Home team is official scorekeeper. Visitor is the official pitch counter. Either team controls the
scoreboard/pitch counter.

5. HOME team reports the score. Please do this the same day so the brackets can be updated.
Either/both team(s) can submit game highlights.

6. Please ask your parents to clean up after themselves and keep the stands and surrounding areas clean.
This seems to be an ongoing issue.

7. Remind parents of the CLL Code of Conduct. This does not just apply to parents, but to anyone in
attendance watching a game.

8. Rostered coaches must participate as bench coaches unless they are otherwise unavailable to attend
