Special Rules For Fall Ball:
Incl Restrictions On Bats & Limits On Number & Use
Of Over-Aged Players



Fall Bat Rules:

Fall teams follow the summer bat rules at one year less than their Fall team age. For example, the bat rules applicable to spring/summer 13u teams also apply Fall 14u teams.

NOTE: ENYTB is a wood bat league at the older age levels:

Spring/Summer: 15U and older
Fall: 16U and older


Over-Aged Player Limits:

All teams, regardless of age or competition level shall be allowed a maximum of 4 over-aged players for the Fall season.

DEFINITION: An over-aged player is any player whose baseball age is one year greater than his team's primary age e.g., a 15yo playing on a 14+ team.

NOTE: The above limits are the same as those applicable to the ENYTB spring/summer season.



Fall Pitching Restrictions For Over-aged Players:

By definition, Fall teams are normally comprised of players whose current year baseball age is one year less than their fall team age. This is because the summer team ages up in the Fall but the players do not.

EXAMPLE: Fall 11U team is comprised of baseball age 10 year olds (based on APR 30 cutoff). Many of these players may have turned 11 in the interim.

If the same spring/summer 10U team also included over-aged players (players whose baseball is 11 in summer season) then those players would still count as over-aged players in the Fall season.

Furthermore, this means that baseball age 12 year-olds are NOT eligible to play as over-aged players on a Fall 11U team.

Restrictions On Use Of Over-Aged Players To Pitch in ENYTB Fall League

1 - Over-aged players on Fall 10U teams can pitch against any Fall team regardless of its age;
2 - Over-aged players on Fall 11U teams can pitch against any Fall team 11U or older;
3 - Over-aged players on Fall 12U teams can pitch against any Fall team 12U or older;
