2011 Rules Posted


The Official Carolina Mens Baseball League Rules have been posted. Please review them in advance of the season – they are the controlling source of authority in disputed situations. The key change is that in the Red and White Divisions stealing home is permissible. This means that except in the Blue Division, a runner may score from third on a passed ball, straight steal or suicide squeeze, etc.

Be reminded that intentional contact is prohibited and will result in ejection and possibly suspension. We play to have fun and be able to go to work the next day.
