Our Story

Backyard Rule, LLC is a “pop-up” sports entertainment venue based out of St. Augustine, FL (est. 2015). However, our story began long ago in a suburban neighborhood in Cincinnati, OH. On this backyard field of dreams, a game was created. A game that was indeed competitive, but was also about more than winning. We have put this concept to trial by traveling the state of Florida hosting tournaments, fundraisers and special events. All the while, promoting our vision of sportsmanship and fair play. Indeed the maintenance of this concept is tough at times, especially in the last inning of a tied ballgame.. It is up to the teams to work through the closest and most crucial of calls. If I have learned one thing about people from these events it is that truest of ballplayers win undisputed and lose pointing fingers at nobody but themselves.

“The Royal Green” was our backyard field in Cincinnati, OH. Thank you Mom for letting us tear up the grass, full well knowing that it indeed would NOT be a selling point for the house one day.. The rules and style of our gameplay was developed in this backyard with my brothers, friends and neighbors.
