BASEBALL RULES 2020
2020 BALL RULES
1. Every kid sits only 1 inning per game. That means each player has to set once before you can set your 1st kids that set.
for example if you have 14 kids on your team all 14 have to set before you can start the rotation again.
2. Every kid bats. Maximum of 9 kids on the field. Free substitution. Except Pitching Machine (All Can Play Defense)
Pitching Machine, will make a batting line up for the whole season.
You will use the same batting line up ALL SEASON. Example in game 1 if your 10th batter was your last out of game, on game 2 you start your 11th Batter as lead off. This way everyone gets equal batting time. When tournament starts go back to regular way of doing line up.
