See interlock rules under the Manager/Coach tab above for more rules
- The base paths will be 60 feet in length and the pitcher’s mound will be 46 feet from the home plate.
- A regulation game is six innings long.
- Each team will have 3 outs or a maximum or 3 runs per at bat per inning.
- A tie game will not continue after six complete innings in a regularly scheduled game.
- No inning can start after 7:45pm until the May long weekend. After then it will be up to the umpires to determine the length of play due to darkness etc.
- All players should be playing infield and outfield equally.
- Every player on a team roster will participate in each game for a minimum of 6 defensive outs and bat at least 1 time. It is recommended that starting player be substituted with spares as soon as possible. Once spares have met mandatory play the starting players may re-enter the lineup in any of the defensive line-up positions. Spares may not re-enter.
- Batting – Every player bats whether they are on the field for defence, or not. To make sure that everyone gets their fair number of times at bat, you must either rotate the line-up so a different player bats first, or better yet, use a continuous loop so that the batter after the last batter of each game, becomes the first batter of the next game.
- Each team must follow the pitching rules as outlined in the Little League rule book (a copy of which has been included in your manual) and complete the pitching record that is kept in a binder upstairs in the clubhouse. The scorekeeper must enter the pitching information into the binder at the end of each game.
- At the end of the season, there will be a playoff championship. The winning team of the playoffs will go to the City Minor Championships to represent our park.
