Tournament Eligibility and Rosters

Coaches need to keep their online rosters updated, even if you're using a player for a single game or set of games.  Please have rosters updated 48 hours before scheduled game time.  If you had to adjust your roster closer to game time, please inform the other teams so they can download the game again and score properly.

Players must have played in at least HALF of the Sunday play games to be allowed to participate in the tournament.  

Fall 18 PITCHING Rule Modification and other tournament rules explanations


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.
