Slow-Pitch Rules

In general, Friday Night Slow-Pitch will follow Slow-Pitch National rules for governing play. Below we have added some specific rules that largely focus on ensuring that we have safe play for everyone. But we must remember that our biggest rule is to ensure that everyone is having fun!!!
  1. Number of innings will be based upon time and light. In general, we will play for approximately a two hour period.
  2. Batters will be given seven pitches maximum. At the end of seven pitches they are either out or walked to the first base.
  3. When a batter makes a hit and runs for the first base, the batter shall drop the bat and not throw the bat.
  4. No bunting is allowed. Batter must hit the ball.
  5. To prevent collisions at first base, all runners will use the safety base at first base. In the event, there is no play at first base or the runner is progressing to second base, the first base player shall not stand over the base.
  6. Runners shall not lead off the base until the next batter has made contact with the ball.
  7. Fielding players are not stand on the baseline (aka the runners path), unless they are making a play.
  8. When running for home base, once you are past the commitment line, the runner must go to home and cannot return third.
  9. Runners going to home base must run behind home base and not touch it.
