Lower Bucks County Various Rules

1. EXTRA HITTER:

-EH can be used, doesn't have to be. 
If it is, it must be noted on the lineup card that is submitted at start of play.

-EH can never play defensively.

-Can sub out from bench for another EH, using all regular sub rules, but they must go into that lineup spot.

-The EH can bat anywhere in the lineup.

-If a team elects to use an EH – that spot in the lineup must remain the EH for the rest of the game.

2. lineup changes *must* go through the umpires.  Players not listed on the lineup card may not play in that game, and also may not play in any make-up/continuation of that game if they were never on the card submitted.  Jersey numbers listed on the lineup card must be accurate or teams could face "batting out of order".

3. Teams must have 9 players to play.  If you fall below 9, you forfeit.  This includes if a player is ejected or injured.  A team that falls below 9 will forfeit that game.

4. Players who are ejected must leave the ball park and are automatically suspended for the next game as well.

5. We do not use the courtesy runner rule in Bucks County.
