Rules

Prep Baseball Report Tournament Playing Rules

 

Prep Baseball Report and the on-site tournament director reserves the right to amend these rules at any time for specific tournament play. NFHS rules will be enforced with the following exceptions. All teams and coaches need to review their event rules prior to the start of each tournament.

 

Age Restrictions: Your age is determined by the May 1st date of that year or your high school graduation year.

  • If the team is found with an illegal player, that team will be KICKED OUT of the tournament and will forfeit all games with a score, 7-0.


Mercy Rules:

15 runs after 3 innings

10 Runs after 4 innings

8 Runs after 5 innings


Coin Flip: In Pool Play home team is determined by a coin flip. The home team will be the official book and will record game start time when announced by umpire. All teams need to be prepared to start 15 minutes prior to their official start time.

 

Field Dimensions and Time Limits

13U: Games will be played on 54’x80’ or 60’x90’ fields depending on the tournament listing with a time limit of 2 hours.

14U-18U: All games will be played on 60’x90’ fields with a time limit of 2 hours.

 

Pool Play games will be played with a strict 2-hour time limit with no new inning starting after two hours. Time will be announced and kept by the home plate umpire and/or the PBRT field manager. If a pool play game ends in a tie after 7 innings OR the 2-hour time limit, the game will be recorded as a tie. In the case of a tie, each team will receive ½ a loss and ½ a win.

 

Playoff games will continue to follow the 2-hour time limits, except for the Semi-Final and Championship games. Rule is subject to change. The higher seed is the home team throughout the ENTIRE playoffs. If a playoff game (excluding Semi-Finals and Championship) are tied after 7 innings or 2 hours, the following rules will go into effect:

  • Last hitter from previous inning @ 2nd base

  • Normal substitution rules apply

  • The hitting team starts 1 out and every hitter has a 1-1 count

  • Play continues until one team is ahead at the end of the inning

 

Semi-Final and Championship will be played and completed with regular extra innings. There is no time limit in the Championship game but run rules will stay in effect.

 

Complete Games and Extra Innings: In the event of inclement weather, all rainout games may not be made up due to time constraints and/or field availability. If rain or weather suspends a game in a 6 inning contest, 4 innings (3 1/2 innings if home team is winning) could be considered a complete game. If rain or weather suspends a game in a 7 inning contest, 5 innings (4 1/2 innings if home team is winning) could be considered a complete. The host facility and tournament director will make the final decision on all complete games.

 

If a game is tied after the final inning AND TIME REMAINS, you will be allowed to play one extra inning. After that one extra inning, if the game still remains in a tie, it will end in a tie even if time remains on the clock.

 

Number of Players/Forfeits: A game can start with either 8 or 9 players. However, if a team drops to seven or less, the game will become an automatic forfeit.  The tournament director and committee reserves the right to look at and rule on all forfeits. A forfeit score will be the average runs scored for the winning team to 0 for the losing team.

 

Injuries: If a team is hitting a continuous lineup and a player gets injured and can not continue to play, his spot in the batting order will be skipped with no penalty. Once a player’s spot in the batting order is skipped, the player is out for the remainder of the game and can not come back into play.

 

Pre-Game Infield/Batting Practice: No pre-game infield or batting practice on the field will be allowed during any tournaments unless noted by the tournament director.

 

Intentional Walks: Head Coach needs to inform the umpire of the intentional walk and the hitter will be awarded 1st Base. No pitches need to be thrown.

 

Courtesy Runner: Courtesy runner is optional for pitcher/catcher at anytime. The courtesy runner must be a legal sub or the last batted out if you are batting a continuous lineup.  The courtesy runner will never be mandatory.

Protests: A protest is only available for a violation or misapplication of a rule, not for coach/fan/player disagreement with an umpire’s judgement call (ie. ball and strikes, out and safe). Pitching limitations are not eligible for protest. Protests must be filed and ruled on before the next pitch if during a game, or before umpires leave field if after a game. The team protesting must make cash payment of $100 at the time of protest and the protest will only be heard and ruled upon by the tournament committee. If the protest is ruled in the protesting team’s favor, the $100 will be refunded to the team.


Sportsmanship: It is required that all teams, coaches, and fans comply with all tournament and facility rules. Team managers/head coaches MUST have full control of their players and parents at all times. This means “on” and “off” the field. Tournament directors and hosts have the authority to eject a player, fans or team anytime during the tournament for threatening with physical harm, physical attack, abusive language, destruction of property, or failure to pay. The tournament committee reserves the right to eject any person from the site for unruly or unsportsmanlike behavior. Any physical altercation between two teams before, during, or after a contest could result in the removal of both teams from the remainder of the event and future events.


Ejections: Any player, coach, manager, spectator and fan that is ejected from a game shall be suspended and removed for the remainder of that game only. Any individual ejected must leave the complex and exit to the parking lot. *If a team is hitting a continuous lineup, the ejected player’s spot in the lineup will remain and his team is forced to take an out. Any player or coach that acts maliciously or performs an act with intent to injure, the tournament committee has the final say in the penalty for that individual(s). Any individual that gets ejected for a second time in a tournament shall be removed and eliminated from participating in the remainder of that tournament.

 

Hitting Lineups: All coaches/teams must turn in a lineup card to the umpire at the plate meeting prior to the start of each game. Once the first pitch has been thrown, the number of batters must stay the same for the entire game and the lineup is locked in.

You will have three lineup options:


1.Hit 9 hitters with a DH or no DH. We will honor the High School DH Rule. (14 and under).

15u and up will play by a modified College DH rule where the pitcher can be P/DH. (This means that once you pull the pitcher out of the game he can remain in the batting order as the DH.) (Can DH for anyone, not limited to the pitcher)

2. Use one EH and hit 10 with or without a DH

3. Hit a continuous lineup with free substitution. See ejections and injuries rules to see what happens when losing a player.

*In the situations 1 and 2, you will have to follow high school substitution rules.*


Rosters: All rosters should be submitted prior to the start of the tournament. A player may not be listed on more than one roster. No player can appear in a tournament game for more than one team. Each manager is responsible for all aspects of his roster and must carry photocopies of birth certificates and/or high school transcripts to provide proof. An illegal player may be suspended until documentation is provided or removed from the entire tournament if proven illegal.
