2019 LEAGUE RULES

  • NO UNIFORM RULE. YOU MAY NOT WEAR STEEL CLEATS. MUST WEAR SHOES AT ALL TIMES.
  • BALLS MUST BE PURCHASED FROM D-BAT AND HAVE D-BAT STAMP. MEN'S & COED LOWER AND REC WILL USE HOT DOTS, UPPER MAY USE EXTREMES, WOMEN CAN HIT THE SAME BALL AS THE MEN, THEY WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO HIT GREEN DOTS, BUT THEY WILL BE AVAILABLE. IF AN ILLEGAL BALL IS THROWN IN, IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PITCHER TO MAKE SURE IT IS LEGAL BEFORE THE PITCH IS THROWN, IF YOU ARE UNSURE, ASK YOUR UMPIRE ON THE FIELD. KICKBALL PROVIDES THEIR OWN BALL, NORMALLY THE LARGER RED BALL OR THE SMALLER YELLOW BALL, YOU MAY ALTERNATE BALLS WITH EACH KICKER AND BALLS CAN BE PURCHASED AT ANY SPORTING GOODS STORE.
  • BATS MUST BE LEGAL USSSA OR ASA/USA BATS WITH TRADEMARK. NO ULTRAS, NO SENIORS.  IF YOU HAVE A QUESTIONABLE BAT PLEASE BRING IT TO YOUR UMPIRE AND THEY WILL CONTACT TOMMY.
  • RAINOUTS WILL BE POSTED NO LATER THAN 4:00 ON GAME DAY AND WILL BE POSTED ON THE D-BAT FACEBOOK PAGE AS SOON AS THE INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE.  LIKE US ON FACEBOOK @DBATOKCITY! PLEASE UNDERSTAND WE TRY AND WAIT AS CLOSE TO 4 TO CALL IT SO EMAILING US AND CALLING ALL DAY DOESN’T HELP.  WHEN ANTICIPATING SEVERE WEATHER, WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WAIT IT OUT AT TIMES AND NOT BE AFFECTED. ALSO PLEASE KEEP IN MIND DURING THE DAY THAT WE WORK OUR OTHER JOBS AND ARE NOT ALWAYS ABLE TO ANSWER CALLS, TEXTS, OR EMAILS.  WE SEND THE INFORMATION OUT AS SOON AS IT IS AVAILABLE.                         
  • 6:30 GAMES WILL START ON TIME. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A COIN TOSS FOR HOME.
  • NO OUTSIDE FOOD AND DRINKS ARE ALLOWED IN THE BALLPARK INCLUDING BEER. ALL BAGS ARE SUBJECT TO BEING CHECKED UPON ARRIVAL AND DURING THE NIGHT.  PLEASE DO NOT BRING OUTSIDE BEER INTO THE COMPLEX, NO GLASS. REPEAT OFFENDERS ARE SUBJECT TO EJECTION FROM THE PARK.
  • ANYONE ON THE FIELD DURING AN ACTIVE GAME UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST WEAR A HELMET. THIS INCLUDES BATBOYS/BATGIRLS, COACHES, AND PLAYERS.
  • NO DRINKING OR SMOKING ON THE FIELDS.
  • ALL BATTERS START WITH 1-1 COUNT, NO COURTESY FOULS. KICKBALL WILL START WITH A 0-0 COUNT.
  • HOME RUN LIMITS ARE AS FOLLOWS AND THERE IS NO 1 UP RULE: 
    • MEN'S UPPER- UNLIMITED, UNLESS PLAYING A LOWER TEAM AND THEY WILL HAVE 6 HR.
    • MEN’S LOWER 6
    • MEN’S REC 3
    • COED 2 PER GENDER
  • FLAGRANT CUSSING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED, THE OFFENDER WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE GAME, IF IT CONTINUES, IT WILL RESULT IN AN EJECTION. THIS INCLUDES TOWARDS YOUR OWN TEAM, THE STANDS, THE UMPIRES(IMMEDIATE EJECTION), AND THE OTHER TEAM.
  • ONE COURTESY RUNNER PER INNING. THIS DOES NOT MEAN ONE PER GENDER IN COED, IT IS ONE PER INNING. IF THAT PERSON COMES TO BAT WHILE ON BASE THEY WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE BASE, CALLED OUT, AND ASSUME THE BATTING POSITION.
  • RUN RULES WILL BE 12/3, 10/4, 8/5, AND 20 AT ANYTIME. IF THE VISITING TEAM SCORES 20 RUNS IN THE FIRST INNING, THAT ENDS THE GAME AND THE HOME TEAM DOES NOT BAT. THE 20 RUN RULE DOES NOT APPLY IN UPPER LEAGUES, UNLESS THEY ARE PLAYING A LOWER TEAM.
  • YOU CAN BAT ALL OF YOUR PLAYERS AND AS LONG AS THEY ARE BATTING THEY CAN ROTATE IN AND OUT OF THE FIELD THROUGHOUT THE GAME.
    • COED MAY BE: ANY COMBINATION OF MALE/FEMALE AS LONG AS THERE ARE 3 FEMALES. MAXIMUM OF 10 PLAYERS ON THE FIELD. YOUR BATTING LINE UP WILL ALWAYS ALTERNATE MALE-FEMALE. YOU MUST PLAY 5/5 IF YOU HAVE 5 GIRLS, YOU CAN NOT PLAY 7/3 AND SIT 2 GIRLS.  WE ALLOW 7/3 TO AVOID A FORFEIT AND STILL BE ABLE TO PLAY.  IF YOUR GIRLS ARE BATTING, THEY MUST PLAY IN THE FIELD.
  • FORFEITS WILL RESULT IN A LOSS AND UMPIRE FEES WILL NOT BE REFUNDED TO ANY TEAMS, OUR UMPIRES STILL SHOW UP TO DO A JOB AND WILL BE PAID, DUE TO MANY ISSUES WITH TEAMS REFUSING TO PAY UMPIRE FEES LAST YEAR, ESPECIALLY TOWARDS THE END OF THE SEASONS, THE UMPIRE FEES WILL BE DUE IN FULL AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON.
  • DRINKING IN THE PARKING LOT: WE KNOW IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT PLEASE BE COURTEOUS ENOUGH TO DISPOSE OF YOUR TRASH PROPERLY. WE HAVE TRASH CANS NEAR THE GATE, A DUMPSTER AS YOU EXIT THE PARKING LOT. ALSO, IF YOU ASK FOR A TRASH BAG AT THE CONCESSION STAND THEY WILL GIVE YOU ONE.
  • PITCHING WILL BE ONE PASS BY THE HIP AND RELEASE, NO PUMP FAKE, NO BEHIND THE BACK, OR BETWEEN THE LEGS.  IT WILL BE FROM THE RUBBER OR UP TO 6 FEET FROM BEHIND THE RUBBER.  OUR ULTIMATE GOAL WITH THIS RULE IS TO KEEP ALL OF OUR PITCHERS SAFE! WE WILL NOT REQUIRE FACE MASKS OR SHIN GUARDS FOR PITCHERS, BUT FEEL FREE TO PROTECT YOURSELF, THERE WILL BE NO SCREEN ON THE FIELD.
  • KEEP YOUR BATS IN THE DUGOUT, DO NOT LINE THEM UP OUTSIDE OF THE FENCE.  ALSO, BASE COACH AND ON DECK BATTER ONLY, WE HAVE DUGOUTS FOR A REASON.  THIS WILL HELP US AVOID ANY INJURIES OR DEAD BALL SITUATIONS.
  • IF YOU HAVE LESS THAN 10 PLAYERS, YOU WILL TAKE AUTOMATIC OUTS, EACH TIME THEY COME UP TO BAT, NOT JUST ONCE THROUGH THE GAME. THIS IS NOT UP FOR NEGOTIATION, IT DOESN’T CHANGE IF THE OTHER TEAM IS OKAY WITH IT, YOU ALWAYS TAKE THE OUTS. IF YOU DO NOT WANT AN AUTOMATIC OUT, HAVE 10 PLAYERS.  WE ALLOW YOU TO PICK UP PLAYERS FROM OTHER TEAMS IF NEEDED, THE EXCEPTION IS THAT A REC TEAM CAN ONLY PICK UP REC PLAYERS, LOWER CAN ONLY PICK UP LOWER OR REC, AND UPPER TEAMS CAN PICK UP ANYONE. 
  • DO NOT THROW YOUR BATS.  THIS IS AN EJECTION FROM THE GAME, WE ARE HERE TO HAVE FUN, AND NOT GET PEOPLE HURT.
  • SCHEDULE CHANGES DO HAPPEN, EITHER DUE TO WEATHER OR TEAMS NOT SHOWING UP, I DO MY ABSOLUTE BEST TO ENSURE THAT EVERYONE GETS 2 GAMES EACH NIGHT, AND SOMETIMES THAT REQUIRES A LAST MINUTE CHANGE, TRUST ME, NO ONE ENJOYS IT LESS THAN I DO.
  • KICKBALL—WHEN KICKING YOU MUST REMAIN BEHIND THE HALF CIRCLE WHEN MAKING CONTACT WITH THE BALL, THE BALL ALSO MUST CROSS THE HALF CIRCLE TO BE CONSIDERED A FAIR BALL.  THERE ARE LINES ON THE FOUL LINE, THE INFIELDERS MUST STAY BEHIND UNTIL THE KICKER HAS MADE CONTACT WITH THE BALL.  THE SPEED AND BOUNCE OF THE BALL WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE UMPIRE AS TO WHETHER IT IS A BALL OR STRIKE.  THE RUNNER WILL BE SAFE IF STRUCK IN THE HEAD BY THE BALL, IF THEY ARE DUCKING WHEN STRUCK BY THE BALL IN THE HEAD, THEY WILL BE RULED OUT.
  • GIRLS CAN HIT WHICHEVER BALL THE GUY IS HITTING, THEY WILL NO LONGER BE REQUIRED TO HIT THE GREEN DOTS, THEY ARE STILL AVAILABLE AND MAY BE USED IF ANY OF THEM WOMEN WOULD LIKE TO HIT THEM. IF YOU ARE PLAYING UPPER YOU MAY HIT EXTREMES.

 I AM SENDING THESE OUT AHEAD OF THE COACHES MEETING TO ALLOW ALL COACHES AND PLAYERS TO GO OVER THEM AND BRING ANY CONCERNS, QUESTIONS, OR SUGGESTIONS TO THE MEETING.  THESE ARE NOT SET IN STONE AND I WILL CHANGE THEM IF WE FIND A BETTER SOLUTION OR ADDITION TO ANY RULE WE HAVE OR DON’T HAVE THAT WE BELIEVE WILL IMPROVE OUR LEAGUE AND KEEP OUR PLAYERS HAPPY.
