Rules


    TRIPLE CROWN GIRLS FASTPITCH RULES

    Triple Crown Girls Fastpitch tournaments are non-sanctioned events, but are played using ASA rules and umpire mechanics with additional Triple Crown specialty rules.

    All rule interpretations will be interpreted using the spirit or intent of the rule as written by the governing body or TCS specialty rule. 

    Any coach or player ejected from a game will be required to sit out the next game.
     

    LINEUPS

    Option 1: Straight nine- Those nine can play any position on defense without reporting to the umpire. Those nine can NOT change order in the batting line-up even though they may be playing different positions each inning.

    Option 2: Use of the DP/Flex- 10 players are listed on the line-up, but only 9 bat. The DP can bat for any player that you designate prior to the start of the game. That player is designated as the Flex and should be listed in the 10th spot on the line-up card. Any of the 10 players can play on defense.

    Option 3: Use of the EH/EP- This gives you the option to bat 10 players and any 9 can play defense. This player can be placed anywhere in the line-up.

    Option 4: Use of the DP/Flex and the EP/EH- This allows you to have 11 players in the game. You hit 10 and designate 1 player as the Flex. 3. Run ahead rule will be 8-6 runs after 4-5 innings.
