T-Ball Rules

7/8 and 9/10 will use LAYAC Rules

Amendments to the Rules for Spring 2021 season only
9/10 Division—No attempt to steal home may be made. This includes passed balls and wild pitches. If a base runner is on third base when a pitch is made, the only way they can score is for a ball to be put in play or a walk/hit by pitch with bases loaded. A ball put in play shall be either a hit or an attempt to throw a baserunner out stealing second base.  Any runner attempting to steal home shall be sent back to third base and all other runners must return to their previous base.
7/8 Division—If a player is struggling to hit the ball the coach may move ahead of the 46ft pitching mark to pitch to the player. Attempts should be made to have all players hit pitches thrown from the 46ft pitching mark. Please keep sportsmanship in mind and only use this for less experienced players who may otherwise not get a hit this season. Please keep in mind this rule is due to the incredibly large numbers of new players and players that have moved up from T-Ball and should not be taken advantage of to ensure a team wins a game.
7/8 and 9/10 divisions—Normally 1 player is allowed to be picked up from another LAYAC team to allow a game to be played with 8 players. Due to potential for sickness this season, teams may pick up enough players to ensure 8 players will be on the field. These players must play in the outfield and shall be at the end of the batting order. Players can come from the same age division as well as 1 division below and must be in a current LAYAC team jersey. A player may be borrowed from the team that they are playing against and play as if they were a regular part of the team they were loaned to. Ex. Team A has 7 players and Team B has 11 players. To allow all kids to play Team B may lend Team A players and they will be allowed to play as normally allowed if they were assigned to Team A.

11/12, 13/14 and 15-17 will use MRD Rules
11/12 Bronco
13/14 Pony
15-17 Colt
