Tournament Rules of Play
- Teams must have a minimum of 10 players and a maximum of 14 players.
- “One Up Rule” is in effect for homeruns. Any ball hit over the fence is a homerun. Teams may only hit a maximum of +1 homeruns relative to their opponent’s home run totals. Any batter that hits a homerun for a team that is already +1 in homeruns will immediately be declared out. Runners cannot advance. If a team is -1 in home runs relative to their opponent, that team may hit two consecutive home runs, moving them from -1, to even, to +1.
