All teams must turn in a roster before the first game. If a roster is not turned in and a team protest you about a player or players. Since no roster was turned in you team will be disqualified from the tournament. 

Mercy Rule:

12 after 3 innings

Birth Certificates:

Coaches, its your responsibility to have them handy in case one of your players gets protested.  If you don't have it to show during a protest you will forfeit.  

Protest Fee:

Protest fee is $100 Protesting coach must let tournament director which player he or she is protesting.  If its more than one player its an additional $100 and $100 for every player you want to protest.  This rule is set for teams that suspect but aren't sure.  Some kids are big but it doesn't mean they're too old. My suggestion is to be absolutely sure if you're protesting a player. 

If protesting coach wins his protest he gets his money back and wins the game.  Protest must be made before the game is over.

Rain out Policy:

Zero games played, 100% registration fee refund.

1 game played, 50% registration fee refund.

2 games played*, NO REFUND.

*If 2nd game has been started and gets canceled due to rain, no refund.
