Once a team takes the field for its first game of an event, players may not be added to their team roster - no exceptions.

3 3 Illegal Players: Important: If your team roster is challenged and you do not have in your possession a birth record for each player it will be difficult to validate a player's eligibility. In addition to this, you will need a current report card for scholastic division 13U-18U for any player meeting the grade exception. To avoid potential forfeit or removal from the event PLEASE have these documents with you at all times and make sure your online and printed rosters are up to date. If you have reason to believe that a team is using an illegal player you must make it known to the tournament staff immediately. We cannot assist you with any challenge once the event is completed. If it is discovered that a team is using an illegal player(s), the team shall be subject to discipline ranging from; manager and player ejection, forfeiting a game, or, ejection from the tournament..if it is discovered that a player who meets the age limit standard is not listed on the team roster he/she shall be disqualified for the remainder of the event. Unless the team has a legal substitute for this player an automatic out would be charged for each missed at bat. Team Insurance All teams must provide team insurance with Impact Baseball, PO Box 47, Sedalia, NC & EC NATIONS - Top Notch Tournaments 3002 Graham Drive Kinston NC listed as additional insured.

Any outs recorded during a game once it is ruled a forfeit count toward the pitcher s recorded outs. A violation of the pitching limitation is determined when the pitcher has delivered a pitch to the next batter after reaching his pitching limit. If the limit is reached at the end of an inning, it shall be a violation if the pitcher toes the rubber to begin a new inning. If the

6 6 pitcher is protested after reaching their limitation after delivering a pitch to the next batter after reaching his pitching limit and prior to recording an additional out exceeding their pitching limit, the pitcher shall be ejected from the game.

All players on the roster shall bat before returning to the top of the batting order. F. Each batter is allowed six (6) pitches or three (3) strikes.

In the 6th inning or any additional innings thereafter teams may score unlimited runs. H. A fair batted ball hitting a coach pitcher is declared a foul ball if the umpire rules that the coach pitcher s contact with the ball was unintentional.
