GENERAL

2. The count begins at 0 ball, 0 strike.
3. There is no strikeout. Three foul balls is a out. The pitcher may move in closer so ball may be smoothly delivered. The kicker may not charge the ball more than 3 feet in front of home plate.
4. The play ends once the pitcher has the ball in control and is near the mound.
5. Outs are attained by catching a fly ball, 3 fouls by a kicker, hitting base runners between bases with the ball below the shoulders. You may throw the ball to a base in a force out situation or tag a runner. 

KICKING
1. All kicks must be taken at or behind the home plate. If the ball is kicked outside of 3 feet in front of home plate, the play will be called dead (This call must be made immediately), and the result will be a called foul ball.
2. No bunting is allowed 

RUNNING 

1. Runners must stay within the base line. Runners may not leave base, until ball is kicked. A runner off of his/her base when the ball is kicked is an out. A runner may not leave base, until ball is kicked. Leaving base Early is an out. Run doesn't count if 3rd out of the inning is a force out.
2. Runners must tag up on pop-flys (similar to baseball). 
3. Base Running on Overthrows; a. an overthrow is a ball thrown, kicked, or deflected into foul territory while making a defensive play toward a player or base; b. a runner may advance only one base beyond the base the runner is on or running toward when the ball travels into foul territory; c. one base on an overthrow is a restriction on the runner and not an automatic right for the runner to advance; d. if any fielder attempts to make an out prior to returning the ball to the pitcher, runners may commence base running.
