Game Play

o Bunts: ball that does not cross the imaginary line between 1st
and 3rd bases OR at the ref’s discretion
• NO leading off bases, NO stealing
• Head first sliding is ALLOWED. Feet first sliding is NOT ALLOWED
• You CAN throw the ball at base runners but NO head shots
• ALL pitches MUST be thrown underhand and slow pitch (no
spin or bounce)
• 3 fouls is considered an out – NO STRIKES OR BALLS
• Batting order must be kept throughout the game. Every player
must bat once before returning to the top of the lineup.
• NO tagging up. Once a ball is caught, the player must return to the previous base safely
and then the play is over
• The losing team will ALWAYS bat first at the beginning of the LAST INNING (unlimited
runs) – this limits blowouts by the winning team. If the losing team ties the game or goes
ahead, the other team MUST be allowed to bat.

*Playoffs ONLY – At the beginning of each game, both teams MUST submit a written batting order to the ref*

**All teams make the playoffs at the end of the season (unless you forfeit 2x)**
