IMPORTANT RULE CHANGES FOR MSLA 2016 SEASON
The courtesy runner must be declared to the umpire and scorekeeper before the first pitch to the next batter. If a courtesy runner is on base at the time that player is scheduled to bat, the runner is removed from the base, an out is recorded on the original batter and the courtesy runner becomes the next batter.
If an illegal courtesy runner enters the game and is property appealed before the next pitch, the player will be declared out.
