IMPORTANT RULE CHANGES FOR MSLA 2016 SEASON

COURTESY RUNNER

Courtesy runners will be allowed in all divisions. Courtesy runners may be any player in the lineup sheet, including substitutes. Each team will only be allowed one (1) courtesy runner per inning, per team.


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.
