Matching uniform shirts with visible and distinct numbers are highly recommended.
A maximum of 21 players will be allowed per roster.
The official game ball will be the RAWLINGS R100. Teams must provide two new game balls to the plate umpire before every game.
OFFICIAL RESULT SHEETS
Result sheets should be emailed right after the game to email@example.com. The home team keeps the official score (the team listed first on the league schedule is designated as the home team). The winning team is required to submit the game result sheet to Rec & Ed by email immediately after the game. However, in the event your game ends in a tie, the HOME TEAM is responsible for submitting the result sheet. If the results are not submitted, the game in question will be recorded as a double forfeit.
An award will be presented to the division and league champion. In divisions or leagues with 9 or more teams, awards will also be presented to the runner-up team.
