Thursday Aug 22 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30 games postponed, all games canceled due to not enough players for some team(s).


Headlights

Please turn off your cars headlights when entering the parking lots. It helps prevent blindness/distraction in the players facing the parking lot and just might prevent a person from getting hit with a batted ball. If you car headlights "turn off automatically", then please park such that the lights don't shine onto the field. Thanks!

Please help keep the parks clean by picking up your trash before leaving the park (and be nice and pick up trash that others may have accidentally left behind).


2015 USSSA Rulebook

http://web.usssa.com/usssa/usssa-general/2015SPRulebook.pdf

 

PROTECTING THE PITCHER RULE:

If in the umpires opinion a batter/player talks about and/or hits a ball up the middle/box with the intention to harm the pitcher, each team will have a representative called out and be warned after the first incident. After a second incident a player is ejected. After a third incident the game will be forfeited. (Taunting or trash talking about hitting up the middle/box will be considered unsportsmanlike conduct and a violation of the second and third incidents.). "The middle is open" is taunting and will get you ejected.

Spring 2019 Rule Clarifications/Changes:

USSSA Rules: USSSA rules will apply including the bat and ball specifications unless otherwise changed by the league. Additional info in "Forms - Handouts"

Home Runs - Changed to 2 + 1. Each team may hit 2 home runs per game. An additional home run may be hit only if the opposing team has the same amount or 1 more home runs. Otherwise a third home run, or a home run going that would cause your team to be 2 more than the opposing team has will count as an out.  Example 1: Visitor team has 1 home run and home team has 2 home runs. Home team hits additional ball over the fence is an out as that would be more than 2 home runs and 2 more than the opposing team.  Example 2: Both teams have hit 2 home runs, home team hits a ball over the fence is a home run as they would claim the +1. However, if the home team hits another ball over the fence before the visitor team it would be an out as it would be +2. If the visitor team hits a home run to even the count at 3, then again either team hitting the ball over the fence would be a home run.

 

Run Rule:The game will be called by the run rule if one team is ahead of the other by:
               20 runs after any inning
               12 runs after the 3rd inning
               10 runs after the 4th inning
                 8 runs after the 5th inning
                 1 run after the 7th inning

Flip Flop rule: If beginning an inning in which the home team is losing by a margin that constitutes a run rule for that inning, then the home team will “flip/flop” and become the visiting team, and the original visiting team will become the home team. If the new visiting team does not score enough runs to reduce the run difference below the run rule, then the game is over. Example: Home team trails 19-10 after 4 innings. The run rule is 8 after 5, so the home team becomes the visiting team; they clear the bases and bat in the top of the 5th. If they don’t score at least 2 runs, the ball game is over


Substitute Runners: When coming up to bat if a player has a physical limitation that running bases would cause harm then before the first pitch of that at bat the player can inform the umpire that if reaching 1st base he will need a substitute runner. The player to be the runner will be the player farthest in the batting lineup not currently on a base. Example: If the #5 hole hitter is coming up to bat and informs the umpire of the need of a substitute runner, and the #4 hole hitter is on 3rd base, the #3 hole hitter is on 2nd base and the #2 hole hitter is on 1st base then upon reaching 1st base the #1 hole hitter would be the substitute runner.  This will prevent someone who reaches home on the last active play from having to immediately run again.  Basically, the substitute runner will be in the dugout during the time that the batter is hitting the ball and running to first.  Note: If an injury occurs to any player while running any base they can ask for a substitute runner. The intent of the rule is to avoid causing additional harm to a player with an injury. It is NOT to be used to exchange a slow runner with a faster runner.

 

Substitute Players: To avoid forfeits any player may be "picked up" by another team to make a 10 person roster. As a "gentleman's agreement" that substitute players must bat at the end of the lineup in order to give team members the most at bats and avoid picking up "ringers".  If your team has a full lineup, adding a additional substitute player is not appropriate. If the substitute player hasn't already signed an insurance release form for another team they must sign your team's release form before playing in the game.

 

Insurance Release Form - All players that play in any game for any team must sign an insurance release form (one form per player, not each team if substituting). Forms will be in the storage shed and should be signed at the first game. See "Forms - Handouts" for a copy of the 2019 Insurance Release form. 

 

Field Maintenance:  If at any time anyone would like to perform maintenance of the field to fill in low spots in the batter's box, around the bases, holes in the outfield, weed trimming behind the outfield fence etc. please feel free to do so at your own availability. Excess dirt is always available in the dugouts (bring your own flat blade shovel and bucket if storage shed is locked) and/or can be pushed off the field (back side of large rake works great - an old one is normally accessible in one of the dugouts). Filling in the holes before expected rain and or adding water from a bucket to loose dirt in the batters box AFTER all games have been played for a night will greatly help reduce the number of rain outs for a "moderate" rain fall.  The league is open to a "Vice President of Volunteer Field Maintenance" if anyone is interested in the position.


2018 Summer League

Faith Church wins the league with 16 wins and 2 losses.


NOTE: Sep 3 games are on Labor - considering moving to Sep 10th.

Each team needs to have every player fill out the 2018 YCAA Team Insurance Release Form. Make sure one time picked up players sign the form.

Click on the "Forms" then "Handouts" links above.

Pitchers/Catchers masks/shin guards are not required, but encouraged. Batters must avoid intentionally hitting the ball up the middle toward the pitcher.

Modified home run rule for this season - Now limited to 3 + 1 home runs. Each team can hit a maximum of 3 home runs, plus one more than the other team has hit. Example, if team A has 3 home runs and team B has 0, 1 or 2, then if team A hits a fourth home run it will be counted as an out.  If team A has 3 home runs and team B has three home runs then either team can hit their 4th home run and it count as a home run. After 3 home runs a team can only have one more home run than the other team. Any additional home runs will be counted as an out until the other team equals the count of home runs.

Players "borrowed" from other teams to avoid a forfeit or playing short handed must bat at the end of your lineup of your team players.

Standings tie breakers - 1) Head to Head results 2) Total season run differential (runs scored minus runs allowed) 3) head to head run differential of team tied with.

Also YCAA has a Facebook Page. It can be used to discuss league happenings and perhaps ask for a substitute player.

ALSO, Players with an injury/physical limitation needing a substitute runner must inform the umpire when coming up to bat before the first pitch of their at bat. The player farthest in the batting lineup not currently on a base will be the substitute runner if the batter reaches first base.  Those with the ability to run a double or triple probably won't need a substitute runner.
