Norwich Days Project Prom Softball Tournament Rules

    1. Respect your umpires.
    2. Full game will be 7 innings.  (Due to popularity of this event and having only one diamond at this time, we reserve the right to limit the first two rounds of games to 5 innings and 45 minutes.  No elimination games will be shortened.  Determination will be made when the brackets are drawn after the registration deadline.  Changes to rules will be noted in parenthesis below.)
    3. 60 (50 for shortened games) minute time limit.  In order to stay on schedule and at the umpire’s discretion, the one pitch rule may be initiated.  The batter will get one pitch (no extra foul ball is rewarded).
    4. Next scheduled game starts 5 minutes after the previous game.  Starting times on the bracket are for reference only and are not official.  We will start early if we can.
    5. Run Rules:  15 after 3, 10 after 5
    6. Hardship substitution will be allowed with a player from an eliminated team, upon approval of the opposing team.
    7. Line-ups due 6th inning of previous game
    8. Batting lineup will alternate boy/girl.
    9. Lineup may substitute Girl in Boy’s position.  Boys cannot outnumber Girls in lineup.
    10. In the field:  number of Girls must be equal to or greater than the number of Boys, no restrictions on number of outfield/infield/etc for Girls/Boys.
    11. Boy drawing a walk will be awarded 2nd base, next Girl in the batting lineup will be awarded 1st base, if they desire.
    12. Coin toss will determine home team.
    13. 2 home runs per game per team.
    14. Batters start with 1-1 count. (unless after the 55 minute time limit)
    15. Only one third strike foul allowed per at bat.  Additional foul ball will result in an out.
    16. Home runs after team has hit their 2 per game limit will be an out.
    17. No metal spikes.
    18. No crash rule.  Runners have to slide.
    19. Outfielders have to remain behind the restraining line until the ball is hit.
    20. A strike mat shall be placed directly behind the home plate. Any legally delivered pitch with the proper arc requirement that makes contact with any part of the strike mat will be called a strike. Any pitch which makes contact with both the strike mat and home plate simultaneously shall also be called a strike. The catcher must allow the pitch to hit the mat or the ground before returning the ball to the pitcher. If the catcher catches the pitch before it hits the mat or in any way obstructs the umpire's view, the pitch shall be declared a ball. If the batter inhibits the ball from striking the mat (an obvious inside pitch that strikes the batter in the box is an obvious exception), the pitch shall be declared a strike.  Any pitch, declared illegal by the umpire (not in the arc limit of 5 to 12 feet), hit by the batter shall be a live ball.
    21. HAVE FUN and THANK YOU from Norwich Project Prom!
