Game play specifics
Jr Rookie:
3 outs or 7 total batters per half inning. Last batter has to be out by making the play, or getting the ball to home plate, or 3rd out has to take place. 
One total base per batter can be taken at the players discretion on an overthrow. 
Example: batted ball is fielded. Ball is thrown over first. The runner may try to advance to 2nd base. The ball is thrown passed 2nd base....no advancement after the overthrow. We want to promote trying to make the play NOT promoting taking advantage of young players trying to make the play.
