rule books
Rule Books
  • There are two rule books that will be in play for the season - the 2011 MYO Rules Amendment and the 2011 LL Official Rule book
  • Why two? To allow for deviation from LL rules within the guidelines of our league and league charter. For example, LL does not allow any adult to warm-up a pitcher either on the field or in the “bull pen”. Our league rules allow adults to warm-up pitchers
