Equipment Rules

Safety
  • The catcher’s helmet must be NOCSAE approved.
  • We strongly recommend that ALL people on the field (e.g., players, coaches, assistant coaches, umpires, and bat boys) wear protective gear such as helmets and protective cups. Failure to do so is at your own risk.
  • Players and coaches are responsible for making sure that all equipment is in good and proper working order prior to its use in the tournament.
Bats
  • For 5u – 13u, all bats must have a 1.15 stamp.
  • For 14u, all bats must be BBCOR -3 or wood.
  • The 2 3/4 DeMarini CF Zen-CBZ 17 Model (-10) may NOT be used in any Training Legends tournament.
  • The 2 5/8 DeMarini CF Zen-CBZ 17 Model (-8) may NOT be used in any Training Legends tournament.

Penalties for using an illegal bat will be strictly enforced. Article 7, Section 4, Article 1 of the NFHS rules states:

“A batter is also out as in above penalty or when … the batter enters the batter’s box with an illegal bat (see 1-3-5) or is discovered having used an illegal bat.  If the infraction is discovered before the next pitch following the turn at bat of the player who used an illegal bat, the defense may take the penalty or the result of the play.”

 

Dugout and Field Safety

  • No buckets, stools, or other items or equipment may be outside of the dugout when the ball is in play.
  • All players, coaches, bat boys, and personnel are to stay in the dugout while the ball is in play, with the exception of the batter who is on deck.
  • The batter who is on deck is to be in the warm up circle and in a position to pay very close attention to the activities on the field so as to avoid injury.
  • It is recommended that all coaches wear protective helmets when on the field.
  • Failure to follow these rules is at your own risk.
