- 12-13 Softball Schedule
- Each team must pay $10 for game balls. This is so we have the same type of ball for every game. We will use 12inch yellow cover Gray-Dot balls for games.
- All games will consist of seven (7) innings or a time limit of 50 minutes. (No inning shall begin after the 50-minute point.)
- There are run rules, which could affect the number of innings played. The run-rule structure is as follows:
- 31 after four (4) complete innings
- 21 after five (5) complete innings
- 11 after six (6) complete innings
- (There is a 10-run limit per half inning)
- Batting team supplies own pitcher. Batter has three pitches to hit a fair ball. A foul on a third pitch is an out. (Teams should have at least two pitchers ready at spaced intervals in the batting lineup so those switches can be made quickly to keep the game moving.)
- The offensive pitcher must make every effort to avoid a batted ball. An obstruction call, at the discretion of the umpire, could result in the out of the batter-in, which cases no runners, may advance.Â A ball hitting the offensive pitcher is a dead ball. A pitcher may take three (3) warm-up pitches between innings-but none if relieving during an inning.
- A full team is 10 players. Teams may play with 9 players without penalty. Teams playing with 8 players will be given a forfeit for that game. With 9 or 10 players on the field, one player must be positioned with at least one foot inside the pitcher’s circle until the ball is pitched.
- You may not step over the plate to hit the ball
- Pitches must have an arch and go above the batters head.
- Any pitch called as an illegal pitch is considered a dead ball and is one of the 3 pitches. If the ball is hit on an illegal pitch and is caught off of the bat from the fielding team it is an out, but runners can not advance. If it is hit and the ball hits the ground it is just considered a dead ball and is one of the 3 pitches. If it is the 3rd pitch than it is an out.
- There are no plays at home plate( no contact, and the catcher may not block the plate)
- (There will be a chalk line placed at 20ft from the home base. Once the player has passed this line if the catcher gets the ball at home plate it will be a forced out. Any where before this line the runner has the ability to turn back and try to make it back to 3rd base.)
- Each team can bat as many people as they would like as long as each player fields at least once and stays in the same batting order. (This is so everyone has the opportunity to play)
- Bases are at 60 ft; Pitcher’s rubber at 50 ft.
- The infield fly rule is when there are less than two outs, runners on first and second, or bases loaded.Â The batter hits a pop up that an infielder can easily catch. As soon as the umpire sees that it can be easily caught, he yells "infield fly, batter is out."
- Absolutely no tobacco use or steel cleats!
