Pool Play Rule adjustment
I have heard from several teams with issues on Saturday with enough players due to school activities. FOR POOL PLAY ONLY – we will allow a team to start the game with 8, and take an out in the 9th spot in the line-up spot for the missing player. This is a special concession to help with POOL PLAY ONLY!

POOL GAMES' RULES
NFHS rules apply except for the following:
1. A Coin toss will be conducted at Home Plate to determine the Home/Visitor team.
2. Pool Games will be 80 minutes finish the inning, or 7 innings, whichever occurs first. The Game begins at the conclusion of the Pre-Game Conference. A Pool Game may end sooner than 80 minutes if the Run Ahead Rule is invoked (10 after 4, 8 after 5, 6 after 6). A Pool game may end in a Tie.
3. The Final Score will be verified by both Umpires and both Head Coaches before they leave the Field of Play.
4. Teams may bat 9 players, any number of players, or utilize a continuous batting order only during POOL PLAY. Bracket is straight 9 or DP/FLEX.

10. These games are NON Protest games. Umpires' decision on the field is final.
11. SEEDING: Pool play results determine seeding into the single elimination bracket. Teams will receive two points for a win, one point for a tie and no points for a loss. If pool play results in a tie, pool standing will be determined by: a) head to head results between tied teams. When more than two teams tie, head-to-head will be used only if one team has beaten all other tied teams or one team has lost to all other tied teams; b) run differential; c) fewest runs allowed in all pool games; d) a coin flip. When more than two teams tie, after a team is selected during any step, the tiebreaker reverts back to step a) to select the next highest seeded team.
