End of Season League Tournament Rules
During the regular season our local rules allowed free defensive substitions in order to maximize playing time for all the kids.
Our end of the season double-elimination league tournament will be played under standard PONY baseball rules which include a 9-player batting order and only players in the starting lineup may re-enter the game and must re-enter in the same spot in the batting order. Our only local rule will be minimum required playing time which is at least 3 innings defensively and 1 at bat. Bottom line is that for a team with 12 players, as an example, 6 players will play the whole game and 6 players will play more or less half of the game.
