USSSA Rules will be followed with a few exceptions.
Teams must supply 2 new baseballs per game. Please mark all balls with team name as discreetly as possible as to not take away from the white contrast of the baseball. This is for safety of the players, so they can see the ball clearly. All used balls will be returned to teams as possible at the end of the day. New baseballs will be sold at the concession stand as well on gameday.
USSSA baseball pitching rules are encouraged but not enforced.
The home team is the official book for the game. The home team is responsible for running the scoreboard as well.

All games will be 90 minutes long. No inning will be started with less than 1 minute on the clock.
Run Rule: 15 after 3, 8 after 4.
Games tied at the end of regulation will end in a tie.
Pool Play Tiebreaker: Head to Head. Least Runs Allowed. Run Differential. Most Runs Scored.
