Rule Standards

New Rule:  4.Sec.19. Intentional Walk: The coach or catcher of the defensive team can make a request to the umpire for the batter to intentionally walk to first base.

Batters: each team can bat up to 12 batters for pool and tournament games.

Unique rule to USGF: is the courtesy runner: A courtesy runner can be used at any time once per inning. A courtesy runner does not burn your sub. However, if your courtesy runner is on base and has to come up to bat she must take an out at bat. So, be aware of where your courtesy runner is in the lineup.

The Official Game Time: begins at the flip and the plate umpire is the keeper of the time.

Pool Play Guidelines: Time limit will be 55minutes, finish the inning. "Drop dead" will only be applied if weather conditions force an adjustment to the schedule or announced in the format. The game can end in a tie. In the case of a tie, both teams are awarded one-half (.5) a win and one-half (.5) a loss in the seeding stats.  Home team is considered the official scorebook for each game. Parents/fans are welcome to keep scoreboards. If there are game-time adjustments they will be posted at the top of the division schedules.

Tournament Play Guidelines: Time limit will be 70 minutes, finish the inning. No "drop dead." International tiebreaker rules apply for all elimination games. Home team is considered the official scorebook for each game. Parents/fans are welcome to keep scoreboards. If there are game-time adjustments they will be posted at the top of the division schedules.


A.
