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 (8 runs after 5 innings or 4 1⁄2 for home team,10 runs after 4 innings or 3 1⁄2 for home team and 15 runs after 3 innings or 2 1⁄2 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 5pm 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 first three rounds of games in the winner's bracket (Games 1-4 & 7) will have the home team determined by their seed. The home team will be the team with the better seed. The championship game(s) (Games 10-11) will have the home team determined by a coin flip.

  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. Per Green Book Rule 4.16 (a), teams with

    only 11 rostered players may start a game with eight (8) players.

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

    for the tournament.

  3. Home team is official scorekeeper. Visitor is the official pitch counter. Either team controls the

    scoreboard/pitch counter.

  4. 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.

  5. Please ask your parents to clean up after themselves and keep the stands and surrounding areas clean.

    This seems to be an ongoing issue.

  6. Remind parents of the CLL Code of Conduct. This does not just apply to parents, but to anyone in

    attendance watching a game.

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