One League Rule - Effective 2019 Season

 

The Dapper Dan League prohibits a player or coach in our league from participating in another local league (excluding weekend travel ball) at the same time.  The basis for this rule:

 

 (1.)  Pitcher’s Pitch Count: The most important reason is the safety of a pitcher. The pitch count of a particular player pitching in both leagues would be impossible to control.  It is not feasible to develop a count that would allow them to pitch in both leagues, nor is it fair to either league’s team to reduce a pitch count less than already established.

 

(2.)  Game Scheduling: Scheduling is nearly impossible where kids/parents would have to choose one league versus the other. There is no way to guarantee players would have games on different nights in each league the entire year. Asking them to choose one league over the other isn’t fair to the kids or the other players/coaches in the league. 

 

This rule applies to major and minor teams.
