The Pitcher/Catcher Eligibility Tracking Form must be signed by the official scorekeeper and initialed by both managers at the completion of the game and kept in the score booth for later reference.

Pre-Game Warmups:
Teams can warm up in the outfield of all fields.
There is a batting cage located by the main parking lot. Batting cages are available on a first-come first-serve basis.
Each team will have 10 minutes of infield warm-ups, with the visiting team going first.  If there is not enough time for both teams to have infield warm-ups, then there will be no infield taken by either team.

General Playing Rules:
District 57 Summer Tournament Policy All games will support District 57 Summer Tournament Policy.
Mandatory Play: Every player on the team roster must play six (6) defensive outs. No requirement for innings played in the infield.
Continuous batting will be used for all games.
Ten Run Rule If after 4 innings (3 ½ if the home team is ahead) one team has a lead of ten (10) or more runs, the team with the least number of runs shall concede victory to their opponent.
Uncaught 3rd Strike – (a) Rule1 6.05(b) states the general rule that “A batter is out when (1) a third strike is legally caught by the catcher; (2) a third strike is not caught by the catcher when first base is occupied before two are out.” (b) Rule 6.09(b) states that for Majors and above: “The batter becomes a runner when the third strike called by an umpire is not caught, providing (1) first base is unoccupied or (2) first base is occupied with two out.” 

Catcher / Pinch Runner Game Speed Rule:
Managers may use a pinch runner for any catcher that is on base with 2 outs, in order to allow the catcher to put on gear in preparation of next inning. The pinch runner is the player that was the most recent (last) out.

Pitching Rules (10-year old):
The pitching rules for the tournament will follow the 2018 Tournament Rules and Guidelines for Little League Baseball as found in the 2018 Little League Baseball Official Regulations and Playing Rules, as well as the D57 Policy Letter for tournament play. These are as follows:
No pitcher will be allowed to pitch in more than 1 game per day.
Up to 20 pitches…….no rest required/may pitch next day
21-35 pitches………..1 day of rest required
36-50 pitches………..2 days of rest required
50 pitch max………...No hard stop, pitcher may finish batter,
For all pitch limit thresholds (including the 50-pitch limit), a pitcher may finish the batter if the limit is reached before the AB is complete. Scorekeepers keeping the pitch count log must circle the limit pitch so that the tournament directors know what threshold was reached even if the pitcher goes over to complete the AB. No player may pitch in more than one game per day regardless of how many pitches they threw in the first game.

 
Catching Rules:
A pitcher who has pitched more than 40 pitches unable to catch that day, and a catcher who has caught over 3 innings is unable to pitch that day.
Managers may use a pinch runner for any catcher that is on base with 2 outs, in order to allow the catcher to put on gear in preparation of next inning. The pinch runner is the player that was the most recent (last) out.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF A PLAYER/TEAM VIOLATES THE PITCHING OR CATCHING RULES, THE MANAGER WILL BE EJECTED FROM THE GAME AND SUSPENDED FOR THE NEXT GAME. THERE WILL BE NO FURTHER PUNISHMENT ON THE PLAYER.
