ADVERSE WEATHER


§10.1(2) • TOURNAMENT TERMINATED [Rulebook page 56]

There is no guarantee of any refund. Participants must realize that nobody can control weather or other Acts of God.

Discussion: Opinions on being called out of the batters box

Here's an "English as a Second Language" version for you, Wayne ... Page 41 in the Rule Book ... You are likely the ONLY person unable to comprehend this very simple and clear concept ...
__________

§7.3 • BATTING POSITION
A. The batter must have at least some portion of both feet on or inside the lines of the batter's box at the start of the pitch. A batter who steps out of the batter’s box at any time during the pitch and then hits the ball, fair or foul, shall be called out. Steps out means touching the ground completely outside of the lines of the batter’s box. (See §1.5)

Discussion: 60 Ratings

This one can't get any more simple ... Cardot/Madalena Construction will be playing in the upcoming Original T.O.C. in February as a 60-Major team, their rating at the time they earned their bid to that event ... At the conclusion of that event, they will be upgraded to 60-Major+ for the balance of the 2020 Season (without appeal rights for a move-down) as the 2019 World Masters Champions in 60-Major ... There are a few other teams similarly situated in other age groups/ratings, ALL of whom will be re-rated in mid-February ...

CHANGES AT ROSE MOFFORD FOR SESSION #1 • The first DRAFT schedule set for the Men's 80/85-Gold division inadvertently omitted an entire round of games for the 80-AAA, resulting in a 4-game rather than 5-game guarantee for those teams ... We have identified the person responsible for that error (I found him in my mirror!) and have made the changes, which are available online ... They affected both the 80/85-Gold and 65-AAA group on both Tuesday and Wednesday ... I apologize for the error! ... Good luck everyone! ...
