Pre-Ball Park Rules

The pre-ball division is all about fun and basic instruction. Score is not kept, there are no outs, and there are no umpires. All players get to hit, run the bases, and field.

It is recommended that pre-ball "games" follow these basic rules:

Batting

  • Game will last one or two innings based on size of the teams.
  • The hitting team will bat their entire lineup. All batters will hit off the tee and advance to first base when they put the ball in play. All baserunners will also advance one base.
  • The last hitter will hit a grand slam home run. It is recommended that coaches rotate their last batter so that all players have a chance to hit the grand slam over the course of the season.
  • The hitting team should have five coaches. One to help the batter hit, coaches on each of the bases, and a coach in the dugout.

Fielding
  • The fielding team will place one player on first base and one player near the pitchers mound. All other players line up behind the pitcher's area.
  • When the ball is hit, only the player who is on the pitcher's mound may field it. That player will then throw the ball to first base and the first baseman will retrieve the ball and step on first base. The play is now over. First baseman goes to the end of the line, and the pitcher now plays first base. This is the fielding rotation and will continue for as long as the opposing team is batting.
  • The fielding team should have one coach at first base, one coach at the pitchers mound, and multiple coaches behind the pitchers area to keep the line in order.
