A fine system will be in place for games that are not played. The decision of the executive will be final.
REGULAR SEASON GAMES - Specific rules that apply:
7 Inning Games. Only 1 extra inning will be allowed to settle ties (day-light permitting), otherwise game is recorded as a tie. The extra inning will be an open inning as well. The last out from the previous inning for each respective team will start at second base for the extra inning. NOTE: The runner could be either the last person out or an eligible substitution.
5 run mercy rule/inning with an open final inning. There is no 10 run mercy rule in effect after 5 innings.
Two players can be entered and re-entered an unlimited number of times at the same position. For example; player A can be subbed for player B and vice versa as many times as possible. If the coach subs player C into the same position, then player A and B are effectively out of the game. Unlimited Re-entry applies to the pitcher as well, as long as the pitcher never comes out of the pitching position.
In the event that a coach has used all substitutions and a player is injured or ejected, the coach may use any player from the bench that is not currently in the ball game. If a team starts a game with 9 players and a player is injured or ejected, that team will be allowed to finish the game with 8 players (No less) and take an out every time the injured player bats.

MBA rules as per Midget category.
SEEDING FOR PLAYOFFS - will be based on total points accumulated during the regular season (2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie).
