Tournament Rules



    • Each team is made up of 5-6 players.
    • 3 innings of regulation. In case of a tie, extra innings are played until a winner is determined.
    • 3 outs per inning.
    • 4 balls for a walk, 3 strikes for an out.
    • A pitch is considered a strike if it hits the metal strike zone.
    • Only 4 players play on defense, including the pitcher.
    • No balks. Just pitch again.
    • Outs are recorded via strikeouts, flyouts, force outs, tagging a runner off of any base, pegging a runner off any base, or hitting the strike zone on a force play at home.
    • If a ball is thrown home and hits either the backstop or strike zone, then time is called on the field meaning that the play is blown dead after that point.
    • The mercy rule is 6 runs per team, except in the 3rd and final inning, where there is no mercy rule.
    • Games are a maximum of 30 minutes. If the game is not concluded after 20 minutes, a new inning may not be started.


    • Every player on the team is to hit in order (including any that did not play defense).
    • If a batter is hit by a pitch, it is ruled a ball.
    • Only official yellow WIFFLE bats will be used.


    • There is no leading off, nor stealing.
    • Baserunners can be considered out via force outs, tagging, pegging, or hitting the strike zone prior to the runner touching home plate on a force.
    • Players are allowed to tag up.
    • If a batter hits the ball and it hits a runner in the air or on the bounce, the runner is ruled out.
    • If a player throws the ball out of play, each runner will be awarded one base.


    • 3 players play the field at once, including the pitcher.
    • A play is blown dead and time is called when the pitcher has the ball on the mound.
