The play-offs are set to begin in full force this Saturday, May 18. The brackets are locked, so please do not ask for any more schedule changes.
We want to make sure all teams are aware of a few things some of which are play-off specific and some of which we have seen a notable amount of violations of throughout the season:
1) Game time is forfeit time. If either team does not have at least eight players present, suited up, and ready to play by the scheduled game start time…they forfeit the game.
2) The higher seeded team is always the home team throughout the play-offs.
3) There are no ties in post-season play. Games will be played until there is a winner.
4) Time limits are in effect. This means the inning the game is in at the 2hr mark for Mustang and 2hr 15min mark for Bronco and Pony is the final inning. The only exception is if the game is a tie (see 3 above)
5) Coaches are allowed to visit the pitchers mound once per inning. Upon a second visit, the pitcher must be withdrawn from the position.
6) In the Mustang division, three innings is the maximum a pitcher is allowed to pitch. There is no pitching maximum in the Bronco and Pony divisions, but we hope coaches use good judgment.
7) Mustang only: the Mustang stealing rule modification remains intact: a) there is no stealing home (except on a passed ball) and b) a team must stop stealing any time they have a 10-run lead.
8) COACHES: PLEASE REPORT GAME SCORES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE UPON COMPLETION OF YOUR GAME
