- This is an invitational 14U tournament and any rule not addressed specifically below will be covered by the most current version of the OHSSA/NFHS high school baseball rules of competition.
- 14U travel teams are also invited to participate in the tournament.
- Bat Restrictions: Drop -3 wood bats must be used in the tournament.
- A coin-flip is conducted to determine the home team for all games in pool play; the higher seed will be the home team after tournament seeding is complete.
- Teams will play seven-inning games (weather permitting).
- A two-hour time limit will be in effect for all games on Friday & Saturday of the tournament; the official time will be noted by the home plate umpire and start from the 1st pitch of the game (NOTE: It is the responsibility of both coaches to determine start time with the umpire). No new innings will start after 2 hours. If a game is tied when the two-hour time limit goes into effect the shootout rule applies: The visiting team puts the player that made the last out in the previous inning on second base. All new batters start with 3 balls & 2 strikes. Teams will begin the inning with 0 outs. After 2 extra innings are completed and the game remains tied, both teams will tie and be credited with 1/2 a point for seeding purposes. All teams should be at the field at least 30 minutes prior to their game time - the next game will start 15 minutes after the previous game.
- No time limit will be used in the championship round on Sunday.
- The Home team will be the official book for that particular game. Visiting coaches are encouraged to check with the home team coaches to make sure books are in sync.
- In the event of a forfeit, the winning team will be credited with a 1-0 victory for seeding purposes. If possible, the tournament committee will resolve forfeits by making scheduling changes. Forfeits will be used ONLY if schedule changes can not be made to accommodate teams.

A player removed from the pitching position (starting pitcher or subsequent relief pitcher) may not
return to the pitching position for the remainder of the game.

to legally pitch the next day.
A player may legally pitch a maximum of eight (8) innings in three (3) consecutive days. This is to be
interpreted as a player may legally pitch any combination of innings to equal eight (8) innings in two (2)
days as long as the player doesn’t pitch more than three (3) innings the first (1st) day. Similarly, as a
player may legally pitch any combination of innings to equal eight (8) innings in three (3) days as long as
