Rules Supplement

MBT RULES                     RYBA RULE SUPPLEMENT

Tournament Rules

  • Tournament Rules: MBT qualifier rules are the standard, except where our rule supplement applies. 
     
    • NOTE: There is no "must slide" rule within this standard.  
       
  • RYBA Rule Supplement: In addition to the standard set of MBT rules, we have our one-page rule supplement. In summary, the most important additions are:
     
    • No extra innings in pool play even if there is time remaining.
       
    • No protests are allowed, unless overruled before continuation of play by the Tournament Directors.  Umpires will only make decisions on BASEBALL RULES, not tournament rules or policies.
       
    • Teams must keep track of opposing pitchers by inning and sign each other's score books at the conclusion of the game. Failure to do so may presume an assumption in favor of the opposing party.
