MosquitoUpdated Monday January 13, 2014 by Whitby Minor Baseball Association.
Mosquito is played by 10 and 11 year old boys and girls. Normal baseball rules apply, with the following exceptions: no lead-offs, no balks, no batters running on a dropped third strike, and no infield flies. Runners may leave their bases the moment the ball is pitched, not before.
Each player on the team must play a minimum of three innings on defense within the first five innings. One of these must be in the infield. It is required that each player plays at least two innings in the infield. Four outfielders will be used in an outfield position. Pitchers are allowed a maximum of six consecutive outs in one appearance.
Games start at 6:30 PM, and seven innings constitutes a complete game. No new inning can start 1 hour 45 mins from the scheduled game time. There is no grace period at the beginning of the game; all games officially begin at the scheduled game time.
