New Rules for Summer/Fall 2016

The following rules have been added or changed as a result of National, State or Burnsville Softball Council decisions:

1. In leagues that have the 1-up homerun rule, the HOME team cannot go 1-up in the 7th inning or beyond.  The HOME team may go 1-up anytime in innings 1 through 6.

2. Mixed leagues may now all use a snake line-up.  Double header leagues use 1 HR with 1-up and NO Courtesy, Recreational Mixed leagues have NO HR and a Courtesy Foul.


Note: There are some changes to the state/national rules that don't impact local rules for 2016.  The rules below were changes at the National level which impact state tournaments and qualifiers but do not impact league play.


1) Men's D Tournament Play - Any homerun hit over the fence after the limit has been reached will result in an inning     ending out.

2)  A team is allowed 1 pinch runner per inning
