All teams are guaranteed a three game minimum (three inning games), or nine innings total. There are 4 - 5 players per team. All players can bat, but only 4 are allowed on defense. Substitute defensive players at any time. We provide all bats, balls and playing equipment. Teams should bring a cooler, chairs and maybe a tent. NO CLEATS. Gym shoes are recommended. The tournament format starts with round robin play and ends with a single elimination playoff. A tournament usually lasts 2 - 3 hours (start to finish).
