14U & 12U Class D & Rec State

July 23, 2014 – 11:15 AM

  IMPORTANT INFORMATION:  Due to a lack of Rec teams registered for State the Rec and Class D have been combined.  On the 12U brackets HLWW was the winner of the Tier II qualifier and thus got a later game.  The Crow River teams listed in games 9, 11, 13, 8 are the Tier I teams and were given byes in the first round.  The playing rules will be the Tier I (Class D) playing rules for the tournament.  Tier II teams please be sure to work of those modifications this week in practice.  If you have any questions please let me know.


Brackets for the tournament this weekend in Buffalo are posted at when they become available. Good luck everyone!!!


Please remember there is a $100 per team gate fee payable during checkin.  This fee is the responsibility of each team or community.  The league does NOT cover this cost.

Rule Questions

June 12, 2014

As the season goes on I will add to this.  These are questions I have gotten so far this season.  I will list the questions and answer as they come in.

Q: 12U Tier II: Bases loaded with 2 outs.  Can the batter advance to 1st base on a dropped third strike?  Isn''t the runner from 3rd then stealing home?
A: The dropped third strike IS in effect.  The runner from 3rd is attempting to advance to home and is being forced by the runners behind her because of the ball being in play the same as if it were hit into play.

Q: I see that there is a 15 run rule in 3 innings.  Is there a 10 run rule in 4?
A: No.  Only 15 in 3 simply because we only play 5 innings.

Q: 12U Tier II: Runner on 2nd only.  Can the runner from 2nd steal 3rd on a walk to the batter?
A: Yes, baserunners may steal one base per pitch with the exception of home.

Q: Do teams take turns being home and away for double headers?
A: No.  The home team is the home team.

Q: Can a batter advance to 1st base on a dropped 3rd strike with 1st base occupied?
A: Only if there are two outs.  If 1st base is occupied with less than 2 outs she may not advance.

Q: Does a batter need to make an attempt to get out of the way of a pitch that may hit her?
A: Yes, however, that attempt is in the judgement of the umpire.  Also, if the pitch came in and the batter "froze" she is awarded 1st.
