Claremont American Little League
City Tournament JUNIORS Rules Clarification

There may be changes from the regular season Local Rules. Green Book regular season rules still apply in all
games.


1. Green Book 4.10 (e) mercy rule (10 runs after 5 innings or 4 ½ for home team) and (15 runs after 4
innings or 3 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 (preferably more due to
short time period between games on Saturday due to the no drop dead time). Note: Teams cannot
take the field for warmups until they have provided at least one representative for field duty and that
representative is working on getting the field ready for the game.

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.

A few reminders:

1. Pitch count rules remain in effect for tournament play. Be aware of pitch limits for pitchers going to the
catcher’s position and for the limits on catcher going to pitcher. According to Green Book rules, only
the manager can ask the official pitch count person for the pitch count. Managers are responsible for
keeping their pitchers at their limit. Do not expect the pitch count person to give you warnings, it is not
their responsibility.

2. All Green Book rules will be in effect.

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. Visitor 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 (including those identified during the draft process) must participate as bench
coaches unless they are otherwise unavailable to attend games.
