Home and visiting team will be pre-determined. The 1st team listed on the schedule will be the Home team, and will occupy the 3rd base dugout.
No players, team coaches, or parents/spectators will be allowed in areas designated "College Coaches Only". This includes the Hospitality Tents and the Scouting Areas .
Roster Batting will be allowed during the ENTIRE tournament. Regardless of the number of players you have, you will need to announce your line-up format at the pre-game conference with the officials. Uniform shirts must be numbered. Pick up players may wear their original team’s uniform.
Courtesy runners will be allowed for the Catcher & Pitcher at any time. It will be designated as the last batter not on base.
Protests: Protests are not accepted in this tournament. Rule disagreements will be settled at the time by the home plate umpire. Please don't argue. Remember the spirit of the tournament. College coaches don't want to spend their time watching arguments. Teams that refuse to play when umpire says "Play Ball" could be penalized, upon review of tournament director, would forfeit all remaining games.
Game Time: Official game will end at 7 innings or 1 hour 20 minutes. Game time will begin at completion of the pre-game meeting.
Drop Dead Rule: Official game will end at 7 innings or 1 hour 20 minutes.
Games will not be scored, and standings will not be kept for the Showcase.
Between innings, we ask that you limit your players to a max of 3 warm-up pitches.
MSP will supply game balls.
Forfeits: Forfeits are to be avoided at all costs.
Forfeits are at the discretion of the Tournament Director or staff. If you are short a player (due to injury or other unforeseen circumstances) and need one to keep you from forfeiting, please contact the Tournament Desk or Tournament Director immediately. Temporary replacement players may be available, but we do need some notice. To avoid a forfeit, you are allowed to borrow a player from another team, as long as that player is registered with the tournament. However, you must receive approval from the Tournament Desk to do this. Forfeits benefit neither team since the objective of the tournament is for the girls to be seen on the field by the college scouts!!!
Teams that forfeit a game for any reason, risk not being accepted into the tournament again. If you are unable to play a game, you must advise the tournament officials, plus it is recommended that you attempt to find a replacement team for your game. You are ultimately responsible to make sure that your opponent is not shorted their opportunity to show their players.
Unsportsmanlike Conduct: Managers/coaches are responsible for their own conduct and for that of their players, assistants and spectators. Abusive language and/or unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated in any degree. Any coach, manager, player, or spectator that is ejected from a contest may be removed for the remainder of the tournament.
Wristbands: All players must wear the appropriate colored wristband during the entire duration of the tournament. Players without wristbands will not be allowed to play. A limited number of extra wristbands will be available at the tournament desk if a band is lost or broken, but it is recommended that the players be extremely responsible with their wristbands. It is recommended that the wristband be attached loosely to the wrist so it can be taken off and put back on during the weekend. The wristbands will show that the players are eligible to play in the tournament, PLUS they designate to the college coaches the year of graduation of the player and their recruiting eligibility. These bands will be passed out at the tournament check-in.
Official Tournament Roster: A team’s official tournament roster must be posted on www.usssa.com. Rosters must be entered by Monday, October 14 at 11:59 pm. We will need to get all rosters for the team book to the printer in time for the event.
The tournament does not provide water in the dugouts. Teams are allowed to bring coolers into the park.
Gate Pass Fees: Gate fee is included in the tournament fee.
