]2019 Verona Little League Mid-Summer Classic Tournament Rules – 13U Division

No player will be 14 years old or older before April 30, 2019. Team rosters are limited to 15 players. Teams must provide birth certificates to the tournament director upon request. Failure to do so will result in disqualification with no refund.

This tournament is played on a fully regulation field of play: 60’6” pitching distance and 90’ base paths.

Bats must meet either the USA or BBCOR Bat Standards.

Games will be 7 innings or 1:40 time limit. No new inning may start if the time is later than 1:40 from the start time. Time limits apply to all games. Games are in 2-hour slots.

If the score is tied after 7 innings or at the time limit, the game will end in a tie.  The Championship Game will not end in a tie.  Mercy rule is 15 runs after 3 innings, 10 runs after 4 innings, and 8 runs after 5 innings.

Home team is official scorekeeper and visitors will operate the scoreboard.

WIAA rules apply with some exceptions.

  1. Bat entire lineup: bat the roster & have free subs in the field, batting order does not change.
  2. Use 9 players: starters can re-enter one time; a pitcher removed from the pitching position cannot return to the pitching position during a game, but can re-enter to any other position – starters must replace the same player who replaced them (and bat in the same position in the batting order where they were batting originally).  The player coming back out of the game then cannot play for the rest of the game.
  3. Outs will not be taken for a missed spot in the order for an injured player.
