Tournament Qualifications



World Series Qualification: All teams must play in one qualifying tournament.

Recreational World Series Qualification: All recreation teams must present an official USGF Roster, signed by the commissioner or president of their league, verifying that each player on the roster was registered and played in their league. All recreational team's players have to be 100% from their own local league. The only exception is if there are adjacent cities or communities that do not have enough teams to create a competitive multi-team age division and they participate in an inter-league schedule. Players from these adjacent cities or communities that inter-league together can be included in a league's all-star team roster selection. 

***Note: in past years there have been teams who choose to play in the world series but, the league does not recognize them as their official all-star team. This unofficial team is allowed to participate in the USGF Recreational World Series, I understand in these particular situations that often times there are some hard feeling. However, the only qualification is that all the players on the team either played in their league or an inter-leaguing team within their league. An administrative board cannot stop players whose parents enrolled them in the league.

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.

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.
