2020 Fall Junior/Senior Rules

Unless specified below, the 2020 Little League Rule Book applies for Junior and Senior League

9 Players minimum to start a game.

LOCAL RULE FOR FALL-2020:

  • District 3 will allow a team to bat all players present at a game (i.e., continuous batting order).  In doing so, the team will still ensure that all players present get 6 consecutive outs in the field.  All teams in District 3 may choose this option at the beginning of each game, but neither team may change their choice once a game has begun.  Also, if one team chooses to utilize a continuous batting, the other team may still bat a normal 9 player lineup. For post-season tournament play, all teams will play by the Little League Tournament Rules, which include roster limits (both Senior/Junior) and playing requirements (Juniors).

 

  • All players present and dressed must play - 6 outs consecutively and 1 at bat minimum.
  • 2 hour 15 minute time limit - cannot start a new inning after 2:15.
