PINTO THRU PONY BASIC RULES



THESE RULES SUPERSEDE THE LOCAL RULES AND HAVE SLIGHT ADJUSTMENTS



General Tournament Rules for All Divisions and extracted from our document.


a) Each player shall be required to play at least every other inning defensively. No player shall sit out two consecutive defensive innings.

The regular season minimum play rules do not apply for the tournament.

b) Home team shall occupy the third base dugout. Home team for Pinto is a coin toss. All other divsions are based upon the higher seed as determined by the end of season results. Managers are required to conduct their own coin toss before the game and before occupying the dugouts.

c) CA tiebreaker will be in effect when the game has completed their regulation innings of play or the time limit has been reached; whichever happens first. All single or double elimination tournaments will always have a winner and a loser (there is not a drop dead time in the tournament and only a no new inning rule).

d) CA tiebreaker is in effect for the “first overtime inning”; place the last out on 2nd base with no outs and play out the inning. Second and subsequent overtimes will require the offensive team to place the last two outs on 2nd and 3rd, and play out the inning until a winner is determined. Start the inning with no outs.

e) Unlimited number of runs per inning and the mercy rule are in effect for all divisions except Machine Pinto.

f) Umpires will submit the final score to the league.

g) Games can be played with 8-players but they will be subject to our 8-player local rule penalty.

h) One offensive time out per inning and 60 seconds in between innings.

i) Hustle players on and off the field.

j) Batters will be expected to keep one foot in the batters box when taking signs.

k) Home team is the official book.

l) Home team for 1st World Series game will be the winner of the Winner bracket. Thereafter, it is the winner of the previous game.

m) Time limit is not applicable in the World Series games only. Mercy rule is still in effect.

n) Unnecessary stalling of any team and that is in the judgment of the umpire, will be subject to adding additional minutes to the game time. The umpire will use his discretion to determine how many minutes will be added to the clock.

o) The pitcing rest rule will be in effect during tournament play.
