Rules:

  • Slow pitch
  • 3'-10' pitching arch
  • Because of the restricted equipment, and the 3-10 pitching arch, the league will play without an "up the middle rule".
  • Count will start at 1-1 to speed-up the game

  • The net down the left field line will be approximately 280'. A line will be woven 8' high on the net. Any ball hit over the line will be a home run. Any ball hit on or below the line will be played as a live ball. The 8' line will carry around the corner until a point that the distance to the net equals the distance at the left field line. Any ball hit to the right of that spot, including all the way to the right field line (~200') will be played off the net. A ball that goes above the nets, and below the roof will be an automatic double. Any ball that is hit over the nets in the home run zone will be a home run.
