UNDER 8 CHANGES TO TBAWA RULES USING THE FOLLOWING BY-LAWS

24th February 2009

Objective

These rule changes are designed around the principal of children being introduced to diamond sports and is to encourage participation without encroaching too much on the true fundamentals of the game.

Additional Rules

  1. Scores – Scores are not to be kept or advised at the end of the game.

It is still a requirement that the game is scored to ensure the correct batting line up and as practice for parents and helpers in the future. No score tally is to be placed in the bottom of the score books or discussed / indicated at the end of the game.

  1. 5 strikes for the first 5 games – Players batting will be allowed to attempt to hit the ball off the tee for up to 5 times during the first 5 weeks of the season. After the fifth week, all games will revert to the 3 strikes rule.

  2. Plays to First Base – a player (batter) shall only be given out going to first base by a throw made to first base and the base touched in a legal manner. OR the player on first base making a legal tag on the batter.

Rule 3 is designed to prevent the ‘run down plays’ usually by the pitcher or catcher & is designed to improve the ‘throw out’ fundamental which will be required for later years.

These rules have been ratified and approved by the 2008-09 RTBC Committee.
