Once a pitcher has reach 41 pitches or more, they can not go to the catcher position. Once a catcher has caught 4 innings or more, they can not go to the pitcher position. 1 pitch thrown or caught in an inning will count as an inning pitched or caught. Warm Ups for the Pitcher: Prior to start of the game a pitcher may have 8 warm up pitches unless bad weather, then it is up to the umpires to allow more pitches. Between innings, 5 warm up pitches or 1 minute time limit whatever comes first. Relief pitchers will be allowed 7 warm up pitches. Pitchers who are ambidextrous, must declare what side they will pitch to a batter and continue to do so until batter reaches base or is put out. You may switch from batter to batter or inning to inning. Pitchers may switch to a defensive position and return to the mound once each inning. 10) The pitching distance is 46' from the front point of the pitching rubber to the back of Home Plate. 11) BATS: Bats may have a barrel of only 2-1/4 " in diameter. Bats can't be longer than 33". Non wood bats must be labeled with a BPF (bat performance factor) of 1.15 or less. Wooden bats must have a handle of at least 15/16" in diameter if more than 30" in length and of 7/8" in diameter if 30" or less in length.

Key words "play being made" If the ball is thrown over the head of the catcher or draws the catcher out of the box, a play is not being made and the runner does not have to slide However, it is the base runners responsibility to avoid contact. If contact is initiated by the batter/runner, both the runner and batter could be called out because of interference. If sliding to a base, it must be feet first. Once you have passed a base and are returning, you may slide head.first. Flagrant contact could be cause for ejection, if coached, the coach also could be ejected. Teaching players to slide at all times, will usually eliminate any extra problems at home plate or any other base for that matter. 17) Obstruction: Coaches, please take the time to teach this. Players must have ball in possession in order to block passage to any base. If offensive player has to go around the defensive player in order to reach a base and that player is put out because of the obstruction, the runner would and should be called safe. Umpires are encouraged to award base or bases to obstructed runner had obstruction not happened. 18) Offensive players may not interfere with a defensive players chance to make a play either physically or verbally. This would be called interference and the runner would be called out and potentially the batter as well. Offensive players may not run through or over defensive players. This would be considered "Malicious" behavior. Malicious behavior will result in player ejection. If malicious behavior happens, that penalty supersedes the penalty for obstruction. For example, if malicious behavior happens by the runner at home plate and the runner not been put out, Runner would be ejected, the run would count. The above rules are Jackson Little League Adaptations. Official rules other than the above exceptions will be as stated in the Little League Rule Book for "Little League Play". ZERO TOLLERANCE ENFORCED FOR ALL COACHES, PLAYERS AND FANS!!! Bad sportsmanship will be cause for removal from coaching position for 2 weeks or possibly the season.

But they still get their last time at bat.

5 14) Base runners must slide at home if a play is being made on them. Key words are "Play being Made" If the throw causes the catcher to be out of the box, no play is being made at the plate. Teach your kids how to slide, then you won't have problems at Home plate or any other base for that matter. Players do not have to slide at any other base, however, runner should avoid contact. If contact is made, interference could be called and both the runner and batter could be called out. When sliding at a base it must be feet first on the way to a base, but once passed, a player may slide back head first. Defense must allow access to the base if they do not have possession of the ball. 15) Obstruction: Teach your players proper defensive positioning. If they do not have the ball, they can not block the plate or any baseline to any other base. Remember, if obstruction is called, a player called out may be ruled safe because of obstruction at another base. Base runners have a right to get to the base freely. Base runners can't run over or through defensive players. Malicious contact would be cause for player ejection. Umpires must call player obstruction if the defensive player does not have the ball and is blocking access to a base. Malicious contact would have precedent over obstruction. So player would be ejected and run would count for obstruction at home plate. If malicious contact happens at another base, player is ejected and a new runner would be asked to replace ejected player at the obstructed base awarded by umpire. ZERO TOLERANCE RULE for coaches this year. Coaches are expected to behave in an appropriate manner. Any coach put to task for poor behavior, will be suspended for 2 games.

You can only go home on a batted ball or course of action caused by batter/runner. To keep game moving along, a base runner will be able to only steal 1 base per batter. So once a base is stolen no other attempt can be made until another batter comes to the plate. 18) Players may not lead off base until the pitch is swung at, hits the dirt or crosses home plate. 1st offense (team warning), 2nd offense - player is out. 19) Players must slide at HOME PLATE if a play is being made on them.

Players can still strike out during coach pitch NEW THIS SEASON: Players pitching will be allowed to walk up to 2 batters per inning. If a 3rd batter gets a ball 4 count, the coach will come out and pitch to that batter. The batter will still have the pitch count she had prior to coach coming out to pitch. Player can only get on base by an error or a hit. The player/coach pitch situation will continue for that pitcher until she has reached 3 outs or 5 runs have been scored for that inning. During player pitch, if a batter is hit by a pitch, they will have a choice of taking 1st base or staying at bat. This should be discussed by coaches prior to the start of the game. (If pitcher is ambidextrous, they must commit to one side only to a batter until batter is out or reaches base.) Pitchers warming up will get 8 pitches before the first inning and 5 pitches between innings. Pitchers have re-entry rights like all other players. Pitchers may pitch up to 4 innings per game. 12) No on deck batters circles, or areas for on deck swinging on or off the field. Safety concerns!!

YOU CAN NEVER STEAL HOME. If you are stealing a base, you will get the base you are going to ONLY. Even if the throw goes into the outfield or over the fence, you only get the base you were going to. A player can only advance to home on the action of a batted ball or action caused by batter/runner (bases loaded walk). A base runner will be allowed to steal only 1 base per batter. So once a base is stolen, no other attempt can be made until another batter comes to the plate. No stealing of bases while coaches are pitching.

KEY WORDS "Play being made on them." If a ball thrown to the catcher takes them up the line or away from the plate, the runner does not have to slide as a play is not being made on them. However, if you have your players slide all of the time, there shouldn't be a problem. 20) Coaches, teach your players about obstruction. All base runners and batter/runners have the right to get to a base freely if the defense doesn't have the ball in their possession. So players must move out of the way if the do not have the ball. By being a spectator to the play, the defensive player could obstruct a runner from getting to a base. If a runner is called out and If obstruction is called, the base runner would be safe and awarded the base or bases they would have reached had their been no obstruction. 21) Interference can be physical or verbal. Offensive players can not yell at or distract a defensive player from making a catch or a play on a batted or thrown ball. Like wise they can make contact with a defensive player trying to make a play on a batted or thrown ball. If interference is called, both the runner and or batter/runner could be called out because of the interference call. 22) Malicious contact is cause for player ejection. If an offensive or defensive player runs over or through a player trying to score or make a play and malicious contact occurs, that player is ejected.

12 The pitching distance for 90' bases = 60 feet 6" from back of home plate to front of pitching rubber. 11) 2 Sets of Rules for 2017 Season: 70' - 75' Bases, No leading off base until ball leaves pitchers hand. 1st offense for leading off early "warning", 2nd offense - player is out 90' Bases High School Federation Rules will apply for the 90' bases. Coaches take the time to go over the balk rules with your pitchers. All coaches should show some patience with umpires in learning the rules. It will take time and there is no Trophy for 1st Place, so relax, teach and have fun. Remember, this is just a game. Stealing bases are allowed as long as you are using it with the correct pitching restrictions. If 75' or less bases, runner can't steal until pitch has left the pitchers hand. With 90' bases, base running is WIAA rules enforced. Players may advance on a dropped 3rd strike whether called or swung at, if 1st base is open at the time of the pitch or if there are 2 outs. 12) 10 run rule is in effect after 5 innings if a 7 inning game is scheduled and 4 innings if it is a 5 inning game. 13) Team warning for throwing equipment or showing unsportsmanlike behavior for the 1st offense. The 2nd such incident, will result in the offender being ejected, whether being a player or coach. 14) On Deck batters are allowed if field has room for them. They must be near their own dug-out side of home plate. The above rules are Jackson Little League Adaptations. Official rules other than the above exceptions will be as stated in the Little League Rule Book under the "Jr./Sr./Big League" divisions of play or Babe Ruth League. ZERO TOLERANCE RULE IN EFFECT: Bad sportsmanship from coaches will result in a 2 week suspension from league play and possibly for the season.
