All of our games will be played on Saturdays at different High School fields. Complete schedule will be posted on the Chain Fall League web site www.chainbaseball.com where you will be able to print your schedule. League starts September 14th and ends October 26TH. . We will play double headers with a two hour time limit. Each team will be responsible for a $100 admin/league fee , 50% of the officials and two baseballs per game. It is suggested that you pay the officials prior to the start of the game. Once the final schedule is posted, it will be the responsibility of the coaches to communicate any changes. Failure to communicate changes with reasonable notice may result in paying officials for a cancelled game. The cost for officials (per team/game) will be around $45-$50. We will also make available a release form that you can use for your team. Host teams can contact Mike Alvarez to post rain-outs on the Chain website. This may save your players a long drive to a wet field. Note: We will not make up rain-outs. Rules: GHSA with the following exceptions:
Speed up rule if game ends in a tie. Each team will start with the player that made the last out on second. If game still tied after the extra inning, the game will end in a tie.
Baseball and equipment: BBCOR OR WOOD
EH and DH is allowed. Teams can bat entire roster. An injured player will not result in an out if batting entire roster. Free substitution, but can’t bat out of order. A pitcher once removed can’t return to the mound.
We hope that you will use the fall league as instruction to help prepare your players for their school season. We all want to win our fair share of games, but we would like to see the emphasis on developing baseball players. We strongly suggest that you utilize a strict pitch count for your pitchers. We really don’t want to see pitchers go more than 3-4 innings in a game and not pitch in consecutive games.
