B.     Games consist of 7 innings unless time limit is reached.

C.     Time Limit: No new inning will start after 1 hour 15 minutes.  It is a good idea to have the managers and umpires agree on the actual time when the game starts.  Game can end in a tie.

G.     A legally pitched ball must, in the judgment of the umpire, reach a minimum arc of six (6) feet and shall not exceed a maximum height of twelve (12) feet from the ground. Any ball that, in the umpireâ??s judgment does not meet these requirements will be a delayed dead ball. The umpire will make a visual and/or verbally signal to indicate an illegal pitch. A batter may choose to swing at the ball and in doing so negates the dead ball. In which all results of the play are valid. If the batter chooses not to swing, the pitch will be called a "ball". No fake pitches are allowed whether while on the pitching rubber or not. Pitcher must come to a complete stop prior to pitching the ball. (No walking starts or quick pitches)

PLAYERS CONDUCT

A.     Fielders must leave access to all bases and home plate. Failure to allow a runner clear access to any base will result in the runner being awarded that base. In addition, it is the runnerâ??s responsibility to avoid contact with the defensive player at all bases. If, in the opinion of the umpire, any contact outside of incidental, the runner will be called out and will be ejected from the game. A runner who initiates contact in an effort to dislodge the ball from the fielder's grip will be declared out, and may be subject to the penalties of the next rule. 

B.     

At the discretion of the umpire, any person who instigates a fight, provokes a physical confrontation, or attempts to maliciously injure another player, will be ejected from the game immediately.  Pride Sports League officials reserve the right to ban the player from all future League activities.

C.     

At no time will players, teams or spectators be allowed to threaten, harass, berate, belittle, make loud obnoxious remarks, â??trash talkâ??, or make obscene remarks or gestures about other players, teams, spectators, or umpires. Any verbal abuse will be considered unsportsmanlike conduct and will not be tolerated. Unsportsmanlike conduct will be left to the discretion of the umpire and failure to observe these rules will mean ejection from the game and a one game suspension. Offender(s) will be subject to ejection from the league, without prior warning, pending further investigation.

D.     

Players are expected to conduct themselves in a proper manner displaying good sportsmanship at all times. A â??Sportsmanship Outâ?? may be administered by the umpire for any cussing by players, coaches or bench personnel. If the team is up to bat, the out will be immediate. If the team is in the field the out/outs will be subtracted when they come up to bat. More than one sportsmanship out may be assessed. A playerâ??s action may require ejection and they will not be allowed to participate in the next scheduled game.

E.     The umpires decisions are final.

F.     Pride Sports Leagues reserves the right to ban any players from future games and league events for bad behavior.
