Indoor League Session 2- Machine Pitch Rules

  1. 50 minute timed games, drop dead at the buzzer but finish the batter (Do not finish the inning). 

  2. After the game, please clear the dugout and get off the field.  Hold any team meeting at the batting cages not on the field after the game.

  3. No extra innings, games will end in a tie.

  4. Each team can use 1 cage only for an hour prior to each game.

  5. 5 run rule per inn max (not 4 like for the player pitch league) unless final batter hits an Automatic HR (Therefore 8 run max)

  6. There is no run rule per game.

  7. Balls can be caught off the ceiling for outs – balls are live off the ceiling unless umpire calls it a foul ball (Umpire Judgement)

  8. Balls cannot be caught for outs off the side nets.

  9. Catchers can't field balls unless they are in full catchers gear behind the plate. 

  10. Each batter gets 3 pitches MAX. If the batter takes or fouls off those 3 pitches they are OUT.

  11.  If the batter hits a pitch fair it is a live ball unless the umpire calls it a foul ball (umpire judgement). 

  12. Automatic single if a batted ball hits the machine or the screen in front of the machine. 

  13. Fouls balls are at the judgement of the umpire. 

  14. No Bunting – This is a hitting game!  We do not want the 3rd basemen to have to play up at all.  So, NO BUNTING allowed. 

  15.  HR’s are at the judgement of the umpire – generally for 10u-12u the ball must be hit off the boarded/glass wall or above the field dividing curtain and into the net hanging down.  The ball cannot hit the ceiling first.  For 13u and up – balls must go over the boarded/glass wall and/or over the imaginary line on the side nets. 

  16. If the game starts early, the time limit is still a 50 minute game.   If the game starts late, the game still must end 10 minutes prior the start of the next game to give plenty of time for teams to enter and exit the field. 

  17.  Any other rules not covered on this rule sheet are at the discretion of the umpire(s) on the field and or the league directors. 

  18. No Team huddles before or after innings (its too slow)

  19. Coaches- have a detailed line up and defensive sheet so they players know what they are doing each inning. Have a sheet you can post with all defense positions for at least 7 up to 10 innings.

  20. For 10-12u on field 1- if the ball hits past the SS and 3b into the net- its an automatic single ( this prevents cherry picking for outs). The cutoff for this is the white center line dividing the field. Anything that hits before that line is an automatic single. Anything hit past that line is live. 
     

NOTE:  The Indoor League is designed to be a fast paced- defended hitting league game. It is not intended to be a slow paced micro-managed game. The ultimate goals are for each kid to have fun and to practice what they are learning within their team practices.  Each player should get more reps than they would otherwise get in an actual game. THIS IS INDOOR LEAGUE- not an actual outside game.
