we have unlimited HR's in our league and we made up a protected batter rule so the big hitters are not walked every at bat..
9. Protected Batter (PB):
a. Each team is allowed to “protect” two players on their lineup sheet.
b. Protected players must be designated on the lineup sheet prior to the start of a game and changes are not allowed as the game progresses.
c. All protected batters may be walked one time during a game without penalty to the defensive team.
d. Upon receiving a second walk, the protected batter must proceed to second base. NOTE: Bases must be touched in order.
e. The second walk penalty shall not be in effect if a strike is thrown to the protected batter during the second or subsequent plate appearance if the protected batter walked in a preceding plate appearance.
f. The protected batter receiving a second walk shall be credited with a double in the scorebook and all results of such action (RBIs) will count.
g. The protected batter rule will be in effect the entire game.

Our Senior league does not have a home run limit and has never been a problem with taking up time or causing big scoring.
There was a HR hit about 3 years ago.
Yes, this is ment to be funny, however, it is the truth.

We are Dallas metroplex C league for over 65 year old players.
We also use a very restricted flight ball.
Defense really comes into play. You have to place your hits to score.
