Players who sign up for games but do not attend their game will not be allowed to sign up the following week. Players may play in as many games as they wish in a week. If a game does not have 20 registered participants 24 hours prior to game time, the game will be canceled.

Waiting List – Each game will also have a waiting list. If you’re interest in playing in that game and it’s full, sign up on the waiting list. The waiting list will help us determine if we need to add additional games the following week.

Fees - Parents must report to the concession stand prior to the game and sign in their player and pay the registration fee. The fee is $5 per player per game. There is no charge for Tball players.

Teams – The teams will be selected by drawing numbered rocks prior to the game. The players that draw the red rocks will be visitors in the first base dugout and the players that draw blue rocks will be the home team in the third base dugout. The number on the rock will indicate the position in the batting lineup.

Coaches – Each game will require at least two coaches per game – one in each dugout. After the teams have drawn rocks, the coaches will agree to the fairness of the teams and make sure each team has adequate pitchers and catchers. If necessary, pitchers and catchers may switch teams during the game.

Rules – All rules in the rule book still apply. All divisions will bat the lineup.  Pitch counts must be followed and mandatory days of rest observed.

Uniforms – No uniforms will be provided from the league. Players are encouraged to wear previous years uniforms.
