Tournament details: Teams are guaranteed a three game minimum (3 inning games) or nine innings total. We start out with round robin play, and those who advance participate in a single elimination playoff. Tournaments/brackets usually last about 3 hours. We provide all bats and balls needed for gameplay. Teams are encouraged to bring chairs, a tent and a cooler. Molded cleats are ok but no metal cleats.
What are the rules?
Basically, we are playing miniature Baseball. Only 4 players are allowed on defense (including your pitcher) but everyone can hit. Pitch speed is regulated and grounders can be thrown the the pitcher for the force at 1B. See below for a detailed video rulebook:
What should we bring?
The only think you NEED to bring is a team of 4 - 5 ballplayers. We provide all bats, balls and equipment. It is good idea for teams/players bring their own chairs, cooler and a tent. You are welcome to bring your own bat if you want, but it must be an official Wiffle bat (skinny yellow), and there can be no modifications to the bat other than grip tape. Molded cleats are ok, but no metal. Most people wear gym shoes.
Do we need to wear uniforms?
No, but they sure do look good. Players can dress as casually or as done up as they please.
How long does a tournament last?
Tournaments last just 2 - 3 hours. Depending of weather and, whether hitters are swinging or taking :)
How early can we arrive?
One hour prior to the start time for BP/check-in. If you want some swings, get there a little early.
How old do you have to be to play?
These are adult events. However, with parental consent ages 15 and up can play.
