7/8 Game Rules

The first game will not start any earlier than 15 minutes after the visiting bus arrives so that the visiting team has an adequate time to warm-up.

7th grade will play first, unless noted

Each game (7th and 8th) will be 5 innings or 1 hour and 30 minutes in length, whichever comes first.  If the length of the game is changed, it must be mutually agreed upon by both coaches.  The inning can be completed if it is started before the end of the playing time, but no new inning can start if the hour and 30 minute time limit is up.

Pitchers mound is 55 feet

Bases are 75 feet apart

Double headers are encouraged for each grade when possible.   Each game of the double header would be one hour and 15 minutes (2011) in length.  The inning can be completed if it is started before the end of the playing time.

Besides these particular rules set up, follow the MSHSL rules.
