LEAGUE SCHEDULE

We will also do our best to reschedule rain outs as soon as possible. Even though we schedule all the number of games for each age group, there is no guarantee we will get in all of the games mainly due to field availability and/or field permits expiring for the Spring/Summer season.  There are no refunds for games not played.

NOTE: Managers are required to post game results and any rain-outs within 24 hours of the event.  If a manager fails to post a rain out within that time frame the game will not be rescheduled.

FIELD MAINTENANCE (Fairfax County)

Teams are required to remove trash on all fields and rake any Fairfax County fields after their game. The League will schedule every game as soon as permits are issued.  

Game Length

Single games are 9 innings with a three (3) hour time limit and no new inning begins after 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Double Headers are 7 innings and no new inning begins after 2 hours and 15 minutes.

Mercy Rule goes into effect after a 15 run lead and the game has gone at least 5 innings.

PLAYER WAIVER (AGE)

Each 30+/40+/50+ team, through the League Commissioner, may request one player waiver for any player one year below the age classification. The player will not be eligible to pitch.

NOTE: Each 60+ team may request for the 2020 season, through the League Commissioner, two (2) player waivers for any player up to 2 years below the age classification. These players will not be eligible to pitch.
