The following ruls are for CCLL hosted games in Rookies, Minors, and Majors. Intermediate and Juniors are based on D2 rules. We ask our coaches to only supplement D2 rules with mandatory play requirements.
In Rookies, Minors, and Majors games for CCLL host games, each team is limited to a max of 5 runs per inning. After the play that scores the 5th run ends, the score keeper should record 5 runs and move onto the next half inning just as if three outs were recorded.
This rule is to speed up pace of play to try to always get at least 4 innings completed as well as encouraging coaches to take risks putting players in positions where they are still learning. The worst thing that can happen is 5 runs are scored.
Rookies games are 1.5 hours
Minors and Majors games are limited to 2 hours
No new full inning should start if there is less than 10 minutes game time remaining. Time remaining is determined by the agreed upon official start time (discussed at the beginning of the game) in relation to when the third out was recorded.
For example, if the official game start time is 5:30 and the last out is recorded in the bottom of the 4th at 7:21, the 5th inning should not be started and the game is officially over
Games should be called at game time if the winner is not in balance once game time expires
If Team A trails by 6 runs in the bottom of the 5th with 1 out at 2 hrs game time, then the game is over as game time has expired and the winner is already determined due to the max 5 runs per inning
Use these rules when you cannot field a roster of 9 players for your game and you are borrowing substitute players from other teams in CCLL in your same division.
A non-rostered player can only be picked up if you have 9 players or less
A non-rostered player cannot play position of pitcher
A non-rostered player cannot play position of catcher
You cannot have any more than 2 non-rostered players
All non-rostered players must bat at end of line-up.
All non-rostered players must wear original uniform
A non-rostered player may never play more than any rostered player (if you have 10) meaning the non-rostered player(s) should sit the same amount of innings or more than every rostered player
The non-rostered player(s) should sit first in the field rotation
