Also, teams now have the option to bat more than 9 players with unlimited subs against all teams in the league, and not just the Twilite teams. Teams still have the option to start 9 players or use the designated hitter. The unlimited batting order and subs rule is only in effect for the regular season. The playoffs reverts to 9 man baseball with the option for a designated hitter
To speed up the games, the Parkland Umpires Association has requested that players must keep one foot in the batters box. If failure to comply, a strike will be called on the offending player.
All games sheets must be either texted or emailed to league webmaster Greg Andreychuk by the home team within 48 hours of game completion. Failure to comply will first result in a warning. A second offence will be a $25 fine. A third offence will be a $50 fine, and a fourth offence will be a forfeiture of the game.
