results of a hit will be determined by ground rules, which will be explained to
teams in detail prior to the tournament.
All teams will participate in round robin play and will be seeded accordingly
entering the playoff round. Tiebreakers to determine final round robin standings
will be in this order; #1 Head to head, #2 Runs against, #3 Runs scored, #4 Coin
flip. Runners must be forced around the bases. There is no mercy rule! Score as
much and as offten as you can.
Pitching Rules: This will be a lob pitch tournament! A pitch exceeding a speed
beyond what is considered a "lob" agreed on by both teams will not count.
Tournament directors reserve the right to intervene and enforce the lob rule. A
strike zone conforming to official Wiffle Ball Rules will be used. A pitch
striking any part of the rectangular strike zone will be considered a strike. A
pitch striking any part of the base or support of the strike zone is not a
strike. A pitch either tipped or fouled off by the batter that ultimately makes
contact with the strike zone while still in the air will be considered an out.
Rosters: Teams will consist of 3 players each and can be positioned in any way
the teams deem necessary. Teams can enter together or the tournament directors
will place individuals on teams in need of players to round out their rosters.
Prizes: Prizes will be handed out at the conclusion of the tournament. T-shirts
will be presented to the champions and a still to be determined prize will be
awarded to the runners-up. Raffles will be conducted throughout the day.
