  2. Games will be 7 innings unless extra innings are needed.
  3. Eight run rule applies after 5 innings.
  4. The time limit for each game is 2 hours and 15 minutes. Time will officially start with the first pitch of the game. In the case of a tie after the 2 hours and 15 minute limit, teams will go into a tie-breaker scenario. Each team will start the next inning with a runner on 2nd base and no outs. The runner will be the last batter from the previous inning. There will be no time limit or tie-breaker scenario in the championship game.  The official score keeper will keep track of time.
  5. Home team will be the team occupying the 3B dugout.  Dugout assignments will be listed on the schedule.
  6. Infield/outfield will only be allowed if time permits to keep the tournament on schedule.
  7. Ground rules will be explained during the pre-game coaches meeting.
  8. Courtesy runners are optional for the pitcher and catcher only.
  9. Teams will be seeded on Sunday for a 10th- 9th, 7th-8th game, 5th-6th game, 3rd-4th game, and the championship (1st-2nd).  The seeding criteria is as follows:
    • Overall record
    • Head to head record
    • Least runs allowed (total, not per inning)
    • Most runs scored (total, not per inning)
    • Coin flip if still tied
  10. The higher seed in Sunday games will be the home team, but the Reps will always occupy the 3rd base dugout.
