Rules

  • NCAA baseball rules are in effect for all games.
  • All NCAA games will be 9 innings.
  • All JV games will have a time limit of 2 hours. No inning will be started after 2 hours.
  • The home plate umpire will keep the official game line-ups and substitutions.
  • Division I:  All game baseballs will be furnished by the Home Team.
  • Division III:  Each team will provide 6 new baseballs to start the game. If additional Baseballs are required, teams will take turns providing baseballs.
  • Any Division I games played that Snowbird Baseball does not assign umpires to a fee of $1,000.00 will be charged to the home team for use of field, maintenance, lights and administrative costs.
  • Teams shall vacate the dugouts as soon as the game is over so that the next game’s teams can get ready to play. We ask that all teams clean up their respective dugouts before vacating them.
  • All games will be considered regulation games.
  • Protest: If a rules interpretation is questioned during the course of a game, the coach challenging the ruling should call time out and protest the game with the home plate umpire before the next pitch (protest cannot be heard if not made before the next pitch). The home plate umpire will stop the game to explain the ruling or the supervisor of umpires or tournament director shall be called via cell phone. If neither the supervisor of umpires nor the tournament director can be contacted, the umpires on the field should consult the NCAA rule book and make a final and binding ruling.
  • The grounds crew will get 30 minutes to prepare the field for the game.
