New league rules passed and notes from this last meeting:
8 teams this year so we voted on a 21 game season.
games will be played mostly, MOSTLY, on Mondays and Wednesdays. Some games will be splattered in on some Thursdays and Tuesdays,
Playoffs will be top 4 teams in A bracket and bottom 4 in B bracket.
Best of 5 series for both rounds, both brackets.
A pass used by a team will be given back to that team if it rains on the day they used their pass for. For example, If Legion uses their pass for Wednesday and it winds up being canceled due to rain, they get their pass back to use again,
NEW HR RULE: 2 then 1 up..each team MUST hit 2, then it goes to a 1 up rule, home team can hit their 3rd, then can't hit another until away team hits either 1 or 2 to go 1 up on home team.
There will be a pitching safety screen up in front of the pitcher, if the pitcher chooses to use it. It's a 4'x 7' tall screen to keep pitchers from getting hit. If a batted ball hits the screen, ground ball or line drive, it's a dead ball out. A thrown ball from a fielder hits the screen and the ball will be live and in play. It will be umpire's discretion on a ball either hitting the screen or not. No arguing umpire's call, his call will be final.
Practices can start Monday, May 1st.
Practices will be open to any teams or players that wish to come up and use fields at night. If 3 teams show up on a given night, it's first come, first serve, share the fields with them and use it together,
DO NOT GO UP FRIDAYS FOR PRACTICE! We still will NOT be using fields on Fridays,
