Our playing rules are modified to enhance the experience for our players. Rules are based on a hierarchy of publications in the following order:
1. Babe Ruth Playing rules
These can be found in your rule books
2. State or Regional rules
These can be found in the Document Center of www.FLBabeRuth.com. We have included them below.
3. COBRA Bylaws and Rules
Included below and downloadable
Players must have played in at least HALF of the Sunday play games to be allowed to participate in the tournament.
PITCHING LIMITS and RE-ENTRY are MODIFIED to:
allow re-entry as long as the pitcher did not throw more than 25 pitches. Pitchers may only re-enter once. To explain further:
Pitchers may re-enter that game OR the next game
If removed by rule (2nd visit in an inning), the pitcher still may NOT re-enter that game.
The 25 pitch re-entry is for all divisions, including 13U and 15U.
3. We've modified all formats to make sure no team plays more than 2 games in a day.
6 & 8. Time limits will remain for the entire first round of the tournament (Oct 28) and possibly throughout the tournament.
10. Pitching is modified as described above
