notes:

 

1.         OBA line-up cards and score sheets will be used. The home team will be the official

               scorekeeper. Lineups should be

            exchanged at least 10 minutes before game time.

 

2.         All teams are required to provide their Team’s Roster Number & Call-up Team’s Roster

            Number, as assigned by Baseball Ontario. Failure to do so will result in a fine by Baseball

            Ontario. Have a copy of your roster on hand in case a player’s eligibility comes into

               question.

 

3.         In case of rain and/or other delays the tournament schedule may be revised at the

            convenor’s discretion.

 

4.         Games will be 7 innings in length (6.5 innings if the home team is winning). No new

            inning will start after 1 hour and 45 minutes have elapsed from the time of the first

            pitch. The umpire should notify both teams and the scorekeeper of the time of the first

            pitch. If the home team is winning and is at bat when the time limit is reached, the

            game will be stopped. The score at the time of the stoppage will be recorded as the

            play. There is no time limit in any semi-final or championship game.

            traveled the farthest making the call.
