Unless specified, playing rules for this tournament will be in accordance with the NFHS rules that PIAA schools use for their games.
Since many players may not be familiar with all of the NFHS rules, this tournament will incorporate these rule exceptions for the October 15-17th games.
1. Unlimited batters
A team may list 9 or more batters in the team’s batting order. The team must declare the number of batters prior to the game. Once a game starts, a team may add additional players to the end of the batting order. However, a team may not remove batters unless the player sustains an injury.
2. Defensive Substitutions
Unlimited defensive substitutions
Each pitcher will receive one balk warning along with an explanation of the infraction.
4. Pitch Count
All PIAA pitch count rules will be suspended for the entirety of the tournament; with just one exception. A pitcher will be limited to 75 pitches/day. If the pitch count limit is reached during an at-bat, the pitcher will be allowed to complete the at-bat before being removed as a pitcher.
5. Intentional Walks
A team may intentionally walk a batter by notifying the home plate umpire. Only the pitches thrown prior to notifying the plate umpire of the intentional walk will count towards the pitcher’s pitch count limit.
6. Hit Batters
A pitcher that hits 3 batters in any one inning will not be able to pitch for the remainder of the game.
7. Time Limit
There will be a 2 hour time limit for each contest. No new inning can start after the 90 minute mark.
