It also counts against the one minute between innings. 5) There is a 5 run per inning limit with an unlimited run limit in the last inning of the game. If an over the fence home run causes more than the run limit, then all runs count and the inning is over. 6) There will not be any verbal walks issued. The pitcher must deliver 4 balls to the batter in order to walk them. 7) There is a 10 Run mercy rule in effect after 5 complete innings for all age groups. 8) Eight players are required to start a game.

Pitching 1) Pitchers are limited to 10 innings pitched per week. A pitcher cannot start two consecutive games in one week. 2) Pitchers can only pitch a maximum 4 innings per game. 3) The pitcher is allowed to walk two runners per inning. After the 3rd walk is issued, a coach from the team which is batting will take their place on the pitching rubber and will throw 3 pitches to the batter to who was pitched the four balls. The batter will only see three pitches and has the opportunity to either hit the ball successfully or make an out. This process will continue until the inning is over. This helps develop the pitcher while also allowing the game to progress.

3 8U Age Specific Rules Batting 1) On a batted ball, if the throw from the defense is made to 1st base, and the throw gets by the 1st baseman, the batter/runner may attempt to go to 2nd base at their own risk, unless the ball goes out of play. If that occurs, then all runners advance 1 base. If ball is just in fair or foul territory, the play is live and the runners can be put out at any base. 2) A. Each batter will receive a maximum of 5 pitches. B. A batter is put out either when there are 2 strikes and she swings and misses for the 3rd strike, or if the 3rd strike is foul tipped and caught by the catcher (regardless of how many times she might have fouled off the pitch), or if they do not swing at the 5th pitch. C. If the 5th pitch is fouled off by the batter, then the 5th pitch is to be repeated until the batter is either put out or gets a hit. 3) There is no infield fly rule and the batter cannot run on a dropped 3rd strike. Defense 4) The player playing pitcher s helper must have at least one foot in the circle and be behind the pitching machine (or coach) until the pitch is delivered. 5) Outfielders must start either in the outfield grass, or a minimum of 10 feet behind the base path, until the pitch is delivered. 6) Time will be called once the pitcher s helper has the ball in the circle, or the defense possesses the ball ahead of the lead runner, or if all runners have stopped advancing to the next available base. 7) Calling time is at the discretion of the umpires and may not be argued or protested. 8) The entire roster may play defense when their team is in the field. 8 players are required to start a game. The 9th batter s lineup spot will be an out until the team can get someone to fill that roster spot. 9) The defense is allowed to have a coach along each outfield foul line in order to help position players. The coach may not interfere with the play and also may not use his position in the field to argue calls with the umpire. General 9) Maximum game time is 1 hour 15 mins. 10) The Louisville Blue Flame pitching machine will be used in all tournament games per Babe Ruth. Coaches have the option to use the machine or Coach Pitch. 11) The machine (if used) shall be set at POWER-4 RELEASE BLOCK-3 MIRCOADJUST-3.

4 12) The coach from the team batting, or the umpire, shall operate the pitching machine. If the coach is pitching directly or operating the machine, they must remain in the pitching circle during live play to avoid interfering with the ball or a player. 13) If a batted ball strikes either the pitching machine, the operator, or the coach pitching, the ball is dead and the batter is awarded 1st base. All other runners move up one base if forced to do so. 14) If a thrown ball strikes either the pitching machine, the operator, or the coach pitching, the ball is live, unless the umpire determines that continued play creates an unsafe situation because the fielder has to reach into the machine to retrieve the ball. At that point, the ball is dead and all runners move up one base. 15) If either the machine operator or the coach pitching intentionally interferes with a batted ball, the ball is dead, the batter is out, and all runners return to the base last occupied. If it is a thrown ball, the ball is dead and all runners return to the last base touched at the time of the throw. 16) If the pitching machine breaks during the game, or is deemed unsafe, and no replacement is available, coach pitch shall be used to finish the game.

5 1) Defense has the option of a 4th outfielder. 10U Age specific rules 2) 8 players are required to start the game. The 9th batter in the lineup is an automatic out until a player fills that spot. 3) Unlimited substitutions and all players bat in the lineup. 4) No new inning started after 1 hour & 25 minutes. Drop dead time is 2 hours. 5) Runner from 3rd base may steal home although if there is a play at the plate, the runner must slide to avoid a collision with the catcher. If this does not happen, it is an automatic out. 6) No dropped 3rd strike or infield fly rule in effect. 7) The pitcher is allowed to walk two runners per inning. After the 3rd walk is issued, a coach from the team which is batting will take their place on the pitching rubber and will throw 3 pitches to the batter to who was pitched the four balls. The batter will only see three pitches and has the opportunity to either hit the ball successfully or make an out. This process will continue until the inning is over. This helps develop the pitcher while also allowing the game to progress. 8) Pitchers are limited to 10 innings per week. A pitcher cannot start two consecutive games in one week. 9) Pitchers can only pitch a maximum of 4 innings per game.
