    3. Length of Game: All games except the final/championship games in each division will be fifty-five the current inning will be completed and the next inning will be the “open” inning. The final/championship games in each division will be seven innings. 
    1. Eleven defensive players shall constitute a team. Must have a minimum of ten (10) players to start and finish a game. Unlimited batters may be used. 
    2. Bats: All bats meeting the 1.21 bpf standard or ASA 2000 stamped bats are allowed. In addition, the bat shall be free of burs, dents, cracks, sharp edges and audible rattles. 
    3. For all games, including the final/championship games, there will be a five (5) run limit per inning with the last inning being an “open” inning. 
    4. Mercy Rule: A team ahead by 20 runs after four innings or 15 runs after five innings will be declared the winner. 
    5. Flip-Flop Rule: The flip-flop rule is in effect. If the home team is behind by 10 runs or more going into the last inning, they will become the visitor in the last inning and any extra innings. 
    6. Tie Breaker Rule: Tied games will be played to completion using the International Tie Breaker Rule. Teams start each half-inning with a runner on second base. This runner is the last batter of the previous inning whose turn at bat had been completed. No substitute or courtesy runner may replace this runner until she has reached third base.
