Recreational Leagues

All recreational league games, including playoffs, will have a 80 minute time limit in place, (no new inning will start after 80 minutes has elapsed), final score will be determined based on the last completed inning that was not tied. Umpires cannot "declare" last inning unless there are 10 minutes or less on the timer.  

In all age divisions, a minimum of 8 players are needed to start or continue a recreational league game. Should teams need to borrow players from one another in order to meet the minimum player requirement, they are allowed to do so. Whether or not the game is counted in league standings does not matter, play the game.
