MCNLL MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL LOCAL RULES

 

 

 

1.    Games begin at 6:30 PM on weekdays.  Game times for Saturday games are to be determined.  If a team does not have nine players at game time, the game may be delayed for up to 15 minutes.   If a team is still short of players after 15 minutes, the team with too few players shall forfeit.  

 

2.    The curfew for all games is 10:00 PM, as provided in the Little League playing rules.

 

 

3.   There is no per inning mercy rule.  The ten-run mercy rule provided in the Little League playing rules is in effect.

 

4.    Mandatory Pitch Counts:  The following pitch counts shall apply to all games and all pitchers, regardless of age:

 

                        Month                           Maximum Pitch Count

                        March                                       40

                        April                                          50

                        May-June                                  60

 

A pitcher must be removed when he reaches his pitch count.  However, if a pitcher reaches his pitch count during an “at bat,” that pitcher shall be permitted but is not required to complete the “at bat.”   The pitch count shall be enforced by the team managers, who are solely responsible for keeping the pitch count.  If a disagreement arises on the number of pitches, the pitch count of the pitcher’s manager shall be used.  Managers are strongly encouraged to consult between innings on the pitch count.  At no time will the umpires be used to enforce the pitch count policy.

 

This local rule (“Mandatory Pitch Counts”) cannot be waived by the mutual consent of the managers and coaches nor may it be waived by the umpires.  

 

1.     Under 12 pitching rule:  Each team must pitch 10 and/or 11 year old players a minimum of two (2) innings (6 defensive outs ), or twelve (12) batters per week.  A week shall begin on Sunday and conclude with Saturday’s games.

 

2.     Line-up card:  Each manager shall prepare a line-up card to be handed to the opposing manager no later than 15 minutes prior to the start of the game.  The line-up card shall contain the name of all 12 players on the team roster, regardless of attendance.  If a player is missing or absent, that fact shall be noted on the line-up card.  Failure to account for 12 players on a line-up card may subject a team to forfeit the game and may subject the manager to be disciplined pursuant to the league’s Code of Conduct.

 

3.     Score of game:  Each majors manager must email the majors director the score of each game and pitching affidavit details within 24 hours of the completion of the game.

 

4.     Mandatory Play:  Each player will participate in each game for a minimum of six (6) defensive outs and bat at least one (1) time.

 

9.   For all matters not addressed herein, the Little League playing rules shall govern.

 

 

 

 

 

All after game talks should be done outside of field
