Theses rules are intended to promote a safe and fun, yet fair, opportunity for young children to participate in and to learn the game of baseball. Since winning is not of prime importance, informality and leniency is desirable. However, parents and coaches philosophies sometimes differ in this regard. Certain rules must be established so the equitable judgment can be made.
