Local Rule/District Rule

No inning shall start after 8:00 p.m. before June 1. After June 1, play may continue only with the permission of the Umpire and with mutual agreement by both team managers. Plan ahead with the other manager as to what will be the last inning. All play will be suspended at 8:30 p.m. regardless of score. If the game is suspended, the game will be rescheduled at a later date and will be continued at the same spot as it was suspended, all pitch counts will be continued. An inning starts the moment the third out is made completing the preceding inning.
Pitch count. At the end of each full inning, both teams should compare and confirm pitch counts.
Inappropriate behavior Managers are to encourage parental involvement in all league activities. Managers are, however, also responsible not only for their players’ behavior on the playing or practice field, they are also responsible for the behavior of the players’ parents, guardians, siblings, or other fans. Taunting, jeering, baiting the umpires, booing, heckling or any other inappropriate behavior from fans in attendance, for any reason whatsoever, may result in immediate forfeit of the game being played. Umpires and league officials have the right to deem a game forfeited in the event such misbehavior occurs.
Q –What are the minimum number of innings and at-bats required for each player to play?
A – The book rule is 2 innings in the field and 1 at bat. However, District 9’s rule is for 3 innings in the field and 1 at bat. This brings the question of how do you get a sub in, since the book says a player removed cannot re-enter the game until the sub has got his or her minimum innings in. In the case of subs, we revert to the book rule, where the removed player can return to the game once the sub has played 2 innings in the field. This will allow you to get players subbed in more liberally and there should be less players stuck on the bench for 3 consecutive innings, if the manager so chooses.
Please also remember, that Canastota LL has adopted a “One Third of the Season “Game Starting Rule. Each player must start in at least 4 regular season games.
The following rules are in effect immediately and append your new 2010 Rule Book.
Rules and Regulations Changes for 2010 as Enacted at the 25th Little League International Congress
Text in Italics indicates a change in the rule or regulation. The text in each “Summary and Implementation,” a short explanation of the new rule or regulation, will not appear in the Rule Books.
Regulation VI – PITCHERS in the Baseball Rule Book has been amended to read, in part:
(a) Any player on a regular season team may pitch. Exception: Any player, who has played the position of catcher in four (4) or more innings in a game, is not eligible to pitch on that calendar day.
(one pitch caught, constitutes one inning)
Summary and Implementation: Beginning immediately, this prohibits a player – who has played the position of catcher in any part of four innings in a game – from being used as a pitcher at any time on that calendar day. This applies to all baseball divisions, and will apply to the International Tournament as well.
Other than the above, all rules per the 2013 Baseball Official Regulations and Playing Rules are in effect.
