Softball Rules



Major League baseball has a new rule that has now been approved : You no longer have to throw a pitch to walk a batter the manager must notify the Umpire and the batter will be allowed to go to first base. This does not pertain to the Farm League. This is not a new Dizzy Dean rule but a new Major League Rule which Dizzy Dean will play by.


Farm League:
2:18 Pitcher must wear a facemask.

Sophomore, Junior and Senior League:
2:10 Metal Cleats will be allowed for participants (coaches and players) thirteen (13)
years and up.
