The tournament will be the week of July 9th.  We will not know till that week how the brackets will be set-up.  Be prepared, we may have to play 2 games on one night.  It’s a double elimination tournament with trophey’s awarded at the end for 1st and 2nd places.

There’s a note in my packet that asks me to tell parents NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR BEVERAGE is allowed into the park.  The only things allowed are sippy/squeezy style bottles.  We can bring the traditional style water cooler filled with water that must be kept in the dugout.  I will provide the traditional style water cooler filled with water each game. 

The person in charge of treats will be asked to have treats in their car.  After the game, the team will head towards the main parking lot (if you come in by the 4 way stop) and meet together to talk about how the game went, talk about the next practice / game and then to get the treats.

No PETS allowed in the park.

Reminder that each girl needs to wear black shorts for games and have their own glove and batting helmet.  Optional items they may have are batting gloves, bat, black visors, long single line black striped socks, etc. 

I do require the girls to be at the field 20 minutes before the game starts.  If they are late, someone who is on time may start in field in their place.  So, I suggest being there 30 minutes early so none of us are late.

Each team may have one coach and up to three assistant coaches in the dugout for a game.  I will always be at 3rd base.  I would like to have a parent that has helped out at practice covering 1st base.  And then I need at least one more parent in the dougout helping the girls line up, getting them water, making sure the girls are cheering for the other players,etc.  Also, I need a parent to volunteer to keep the scorebook for me each game.  You are not required to sit in the dugout for this role.

A couple of important rule changes to note:

  • No inning shall start after one hour and five minutes of play. 
  • Each half inning will be limited to three (3) outs or five (5) runs, whichever comes first.
  • Coaches will bat their roster.
  • A walk will be awarded after six balls if the pitch uses a windmill motion or after four balls if the pitcher uses a slingshot motion.  The pitcher may not change the style of delivery until the batter has completed the turn at bat. A pitcher can not walk a run in… If the bases are loaded, the coach will pitch from within the pitching circle (maximum of five (5) pitches). If the ball is hit into fair territory play will resume as normal. If after five (5) pitches by the coach the ball has not been hit into fair territory the next batter in the batting order is brought up and play will resume as normal. No out is recorded.
  • The batter/runner may not run on a dropped third strike.
  • First base will be awarded only if the batter is hit while the ball is in the air.  If the ball hits the ground first it will be called a ball and no base will be Awarded
  • There is no infield fly rule in the 3rd, 4th, grade division.
