Notes and clarifications: 


Extra innings:.
There are no extra innings during the regular season.


Last minute replacements done at game time.
When an unplanned replacement player is needed at game time due to a last minute missing/late player it will be strictly done as whoever is available and the replacement will only be allowed to play catcher and cannot hit. The replacement will be allowed to catch foul balls, but they cannot cover home plate on plays. Just to clarify, this does not apply to replacement players set up before games. This does not apply to questionable replacements mentioned before the game, as in one manager is told that “a left fielder might not be able to make it which would put me under 10, and if that happens I am going have player X replace him.”


Injuries:
When there is a key injury, replacements will be allowed in specific cases even in the playoffs… those decisions will be made by the commissioner’s office.
