There is a 5-run rule per inning except the last inning. Both teams have to declare the last inning with the umpire. If no last inning is declared, the run rule still is in effect.
A catcher is not eligible to pitch if he catches four innings. (One pitch in the fourth inning counts as an inning.)
Any runner is called out when running more than three feet away from the baseline to avoid being tagged, unless such action is to avoid interference with a fielder fielding a batted ball. A runner’s baseline is established when the tag attempt occurs and is a straight line from the runner to the base to which he or she is attempting to reach. It is important to note that in order to enforce this rule, the defense must attempt to tag the runner.
Little League does not have a “Must Slide” rule for a runner sliding into home or any other base. However, any runner is out when the runner does not slide or attempt to get around a fielder who has the ball and is waiting to make the tag. HOUSE RULE THE PLAYER MUST SLIDE OR AVOID CONTACT.

EACH Coach is responsible for parent’s code of conduct and the SLL covid waiver form. A player cannot play if SLL does have these signed formed and also all financial balances must be paid in full prior to the season. If any of these are not handled, the player should be notified of their inability to participate in that particular activity.
It is anticipated that all managers will act in a manner of full sportsmanship and that disagreements on rulings be settled on the field of play. With that in mind it is the responsibility of each manager and coaches to make sure all rules are followed. Each Manager/Coach is responsible for their team’s parents.
