Southeast Portland Little League

Intermediate (50/70) Baseball Rules

 


The Official Little League Rules and Regulations for Baseball Divisions apply. Oregon District #2 has adopted the following supplemental rules.

 

Games


There are no time limits. A regulation game consists of 7 innings. (LL Rules, 4.10(a)) To be a legal game, a minimum of 5 innings must be played, or 4 1/2 if the home team is ahead.  

 

Innings

 

During the first half of the season, there will be a five run limit each inning for the first four innings. 

 

Batting


Teams have the option of using a continuous batting order. If a team is using a continuous batting order, the manager must declare to the other team's manager and scorekeeper before the start of the game. After completing the first half of the season, it is recommended that teams use a line-up roster. (LL Rules, 2.0, Batting Order; 4.04, Note 1, Note 2)

 

Balks


Balks will be treated as an educational opportunity. Therefore, pitchers and managers will be given warnings and educated on what happened/how to correct whenever a balk situation occurs. If after multiple attempts to educate the pitcher seems to not be effective, or is determined to be dangerous to a player, a balk will be called by the umpire and penalties enforced. It is up to the umpire when the penalty should be enforced.

 

Metal Cleats

 

Players may wear metal cleats except on the following fields: Clackamas Hood View Sports Complex, North Clackamas Park and Lents.
