OFFICIALS: The host team will provide officials certified by NCISAA approved booking agents. These officials will be paid directly from gate receipts. A three man crew will be used for semi- finals and finals.

GAME BALLS: Game balls when not furnished by a sponsor should be

1A/2A/3A RULES: First and second round games will be played at the site of the higher seeded team. In all games, the higher seeded team is the home team. Rained out games must be played on the next available playing date and will be resumed at the point of interruption. No player may pitch more than 10 innings during any consecutive three-day period. One pitch constitutes an inning pitched or an appearance. All games will be single elimination play-offs except for the championship which will be a 2 out of 3 series in which the higher seed will be the home team in the first and third games. The ten run rule should be employed after five innings.

National High School Federation rules will apply to all cases not specifically covered by these regulations. Any member school must play a minimum of 4 contests on 4 separate dates to be eligible to participate in state play-off competition.

SUSPENDED GAMES. A game called for any reason, where a winner cannot be determined will be treated as a suspended game. If the game is to be completed it will be continued from the point of suspension, with the lineup and batting order of each team the same as the lineup and batting order at the moment of suspension, subject to the rules of the game. If more than 4 ½ innings have been played and a winner can be determined, the game is over (including play off games). After 5 innings, if the visiting team scores a tying or go ahead run in their top half of the inning and the home team does not have an opportunity to bat or complete its time at bat, the game is treated as a suspended game. If a game is called prior to the completion of a full inning after the fifth inning, the game becomes a suspended game in the following situation: The visiting team has scored one or more runs to tie the score or to take the lead, and the home team has not tied the score or retaken the lead. PLAY – The sixth inning begins with score H-6, V-5. Visitors score two runs in their half of the inning. Game is called because of rain with (a) two outs in the bottom of the sixth and the score H-6, V-7 or (b) following the completion of the home team’s turn at bat with the score H-6, V-7. RULING: In (a) the game is suspended and resumed on the next possible date at the point of interruption. In (b) the game is official, with the final score H-6, V-7. A suspended game does not count against the weekly limitations in the week in which it is completed.
