FALL RULES – 4/5YO and 6YO Division:

In the event of lightning, any field usage is to stop (everyone off the field, seek shelter) and must wait 20 minutes for all clear. At Crockett Park, a lightning detection system is in place to detect lightning across a 3-mile radius. The system will notify by intercom that lightning has been detected and to seek shelter. If you are at Crockett, these are the requirements to follow – off the field until the 20 minutes have expired. In the event of lightning strikes continuing to be detected, the park will be closed. At all other parks where a detection system is not in place, visual observation is used.

Any game started that is stopped due to weather will not be rescheduled.

Before the Game

1. Games will be cancelled due to weather on the decision of the league.
2. Teams are to warm up in the outfield prior to the game with no use of the infield – fair or foul territory – before the game. We do this to preserve the game prep that occurs to the field.
3. Teams are to be in the dugout area ready to start the game five minutes prior to the scheduled game start.

Field & Game Limits
1. Time limits are 60 minutes from scheduled start time. If you start late, the game end time is still one hour from the scheduled start time. Coaches may end games early.
2. In 4/5YO play, teams will use a tee to start the season. As the season progresses, a coach may attempt to pitch to each batter from a short distance and usually from one knee. If the batter is unsuccessful at five pitches, a tee is used.
2. In 6YO play, a coach will attempt to pitch to each batter from a short distance and usually from one knee. If the batter is unsuccessful at five pitches, a tee is used. Batters may immediately use a tee if desired.
3.  In 4/5YO play, runners do not advance past a single base during an at bat.
4.  In 6YO play, a player hitting the ball to the outfield may advance another base as can the runners in front of the batter.
5.  Outs in the 6YO division result in the player returning to the dugout while we keep players on bases in the 4/5YO division. 
6. Teams bat no more than 8 players per inning. The last batter is to run around the bases to home plate.

1. All bats must have the "USA Baseball Stamp" to be used. All other bats are illegal and cannot be used. There are no exceptions.

Player Participation
1. Teams must bat all players and use free substitution.
2. If you have more than 9 players, no player is to sit two consecutive innings on defense.
3. Players arriving after game time will be placed last in the batting lineup order.

Score keeping
1. We do not keep score.

Player Positioning
1. All players are to be placed in one of the following 9 positions – 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, P, RF, RCF, LCF, LF. If you have more than 10 players, additional players may be placed in the outfield. We suggest one of the assistants or parents take the more than 5 outfielders to the corner of right field and practice grounders, short toss, etc.
2. The pitcher must wear a helmet but must only be their helmet.
3. The outfielders must be in the outfield grass. The outfielders must be positioned behind the start of the outfield grass until the ball is hit.
