Game Times and Nights of Play
Nights of Play are Monday and Wednesday.
All games are to a maximum of 7 innings, if time and weather permits. A game stopped due to weather will be considered complete if 3 innings have been finished. Keep warm-ups to a minimum to get innings in.
Any game where a team has less than 7 players at the diamond 15 minutes past the designated start of the game, it will result in the team forfeiting their right to win, teams will balance players and game play will start. If there are not enough players to balance teams the game will be called and players can leave the diamond.
When playing with 7 players the 8th and 9th place in the batting order are not automatic outs.
Coaches are responsible for arranging for the makeup of a rainout.
Note that once a rainout is called, the game should be rescheduled within one week and played as soon as possible.
