Senior Topics – 1-up Run Limit

The following rules were discussed and added and/or edited in our league rules:

  • 53. Pick-up Players
    • 53.1 Teams may start or finish a game with as few as 8 players. Picking up players from another team constitutes a forfeit.
  • 19. Tournaments
    • 19.2 The 1st and 2nd place game and 3rd and 4th place game will be a full 7-innings with no time limit for all leagues.
  • 50. Run Limit
    • 50.1 Senior teams will only be allowed to score 5 runs per inning. If a team is behind they will be allowed to catch up to the lead team.
    • 50.2 The final inning will be “Open” and teams will be allowed unlimited runs. If the 7th inning has not been started when 12 minutes remain in the game the umpire will call for the “Open” inning.
    • 50.3 If no winner is declared by the end of the “Open” inning, the game will end in a tie.
  • 33. Minimum Number of Players
    • 33.3 For rules about adding late players refer to rule 22.

Agreement that we will try 12 minutes for the “Open” inning announcement but if we find that it isn’t enough time or it’s too much time it will be amended during the season.
