SB Junior Minors Rules


  • 1st inning- bat continuous batting order; do not count outs
    • If the batter is thrown out, she returns to the dugout; she does not remain on base
  • All subsequent innings: play continues until 3 outs are made OR the entire team has  an at bat
  • There will be a 10 pitch limit per player; if the batter cannot make contact after 10 pitches, it will be counted as an out (in the 2nd or 3rd inning), and the player will return to the dugout; at no time will a “tee” be used instead of coach pitch
    • a coach assisting a batter who is struggling will be acceptable
  • Each batter shall take only 1 base per at-bat (even if it rolls out to the parking lot
     (Home Run Exception -if the batter hits it over the fence-she may take all 4  bases)
  • games shall be no longer than 90 mins in duration
  • No score shall be kept
  • Face masks are not required, but highly recommended.  They are required at the uplevels and it is good for players to get used to playing with them.
  • The position of catcher will be filled by a player
  • No minimum number of players is required to start the game
  • At the end of the season(last 2 games), kid-pitch will be allowed at the coaches’ discretion
