USSSA Rules Except:
ROSTER BATTING OPTION (not applicable to the Elite Select Program) - Allows a team the option to bat its entire roster (all players physically present) in lieu of a "traditional" lineup. Teams choosing to roster bat may disperse additional players - starters who aren't listed as defensive players - anywhere in their batting order to bat everyone present. If a player leaves the game for any reason, it creates an absent player (automatic out) situation.
LAST COMPLETED AT BAT COURTESY RUNNER OPTION (not applicable to the Elite Select Program) – Teams may now use the last completed at bat if no unused substitute is available. Under this change, a team will always have a courtesy runner option, even if using roster batting.
LINEUP CARDS REQUIRED
