A strike is defined as a pitch that hits the mat at home plate. 3 strikes is an out. If a foul ball on 3rd strike, batter is out. 4 balls is a walk.

No bunting. No base stealing. No lead offs.  No sliding. If any of these occur, runner is out.

Homeruns hit over the fence, must always be within a two home run plus minus for each team. Each team cannot be more than two home runs ahead of the other team. A home run that exceeds this 2 rule, the batter is out, runners do not advance.

As many courtesy runners as is required.

A runner can overrun any base but must tag the base before continuing. For Safety, a double base will be used at first base.

Commitment Line: is a line of no return between 3rd and Home Plate, 20 ft from Home Plate.

Safe line: a line will be drawn in foul territory 10 ft from the 3rd base line. A runner attempting to reach Home Plate must do so by touching the ground in foul territory on or beyond the Safe line

Each game will be 7 innings.

A maximum of 7 runs per inning in all games.

MERCY RULE:  game over if after 5 innings any team is leading by 15 runs.

If game is called for any reason, only by the umpire, score reverts to last complete inning. If 5 have been played (4 1/2 if Home team is ahead), is considered a complete game. If 5 are not completed, is considered a tie game.

2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, 0 points for a loss
