GENERAL SPORT RULES FOR BASEBALL

The official batting line up requires a minimum of nine (9) batters. Teams may bat through their entire order of rostered and available players or include any number between nine (9) and the maximum of twenty-four (24) batters, team limit. (All batters must be on the official team roster.) After a game has begun, a team may elect to add additional batters to their line up to increase the original number of batters (at the end of the 5th inning, no additional players may be added to the line-up. During medal play, there will be no additions to the bottom of the line-up during any inning. Should a team not list all their available players as batters they may substitute any of those players into any batting order position. That player must then bat in the inserted batting order position until substituted for; pinch hitters are considered substitute batters. Once a batter is replaced in the lineup batting order that player may not bat for the remainder of the game; the player is still eligible to participate on defense without penalty for substitution. Teams must complete the game with the same number of batters as on their official game batting lineup. Should a listed batting lineup position not have a batter available when that position comes to bat that position will receive an automatic out each time throughout the game. Open defensive substitution is permitted throughout the game. Players may change on field and bench positions at any time in each inning. Rostered and available players may play any one of the nine (9) defensive positions during an inning without a penalty for substitution. This will allow greater player participation.

SPORTSMANSHIP

Players, coaches, managers or other team members will not make disparaging or insulting remarks to or about opposing players, officials or spectators; or commit other acts that could be considered unsportsmanlike conduct. This includes behavior on and off the field at the venue site. The penalty for violations by a player is, at minimum, prompt ejection of the offender from the game. The offender must leave the field or spectator area immediately. If the offender refuses to leave, his/her team will forfeit that game. Penalties may also include suspension from following games. If a player is ejected from the last game of the tournament, the player may be suspended from future games in the following years. Severe offenses may result in being suspended temporarily or permanently from future Nevada Police and Fire Games.
