Equalizer rule question
We are playing in the Bobby Chapp Tournament in Lansing this weekend. We are a 55 AAA team. We play 2 preliminary games on Saturday. Even though there are 6 teams in our division (50/55 AA&AAA) we do not play any of them in the preliminaries. We play a 60 Major and a 60 Major plus team. My question is what is the equalizer here? I think when we play the 60 major team we play them even, and when we play the 60 Major+ team we get the 5 runs or fielder. We also play by our rules (AAA). Please let me know if I am correct.

If the equalizer rules are applied correctly, you will play those two preliminary games as follows:

vs. 60-Major+ = You receive the 5-Run OR 11-Defensive-Player equalizer AND the HR rule is 3 per team per game, Outs
vs. 60-Major = Play straight up defensively, no runs given/taken AND the HR Rule is 3 per team per game, Outs

Good luck!
