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.

Rules: Basically, we are playing miniature Baseball. Only 4 players are allowed on defense (including the pitcher). Hitters do run the bases and fielders can throw grounders to the pitcher for the force play at 1B. Pitch speed is limited to medium/slow (28 mph speed limit). Also, we play pegs so LOOK OUT runners! For a more in-depth description of the rules please see our video rulebook below.

Thank you so much to The Gray Family for inviting us out to be a part of your day! Please reach out to nate@backyardrule.com for any questions about the tournament or to schedule an event of your own.
