Bantam is played by 14 and 15 year old boys and girls. Normal baseball rules apply.
Each player on the team must play a minimum of two innings in the infield. Three outfielders will be used in an outfield position. Pitchers are allowed a maximum of nine consecutive outs in one appearance.
Games start times vary, but are no earlier than 6:00 for regular season games. Seven innings constitutes a complete game. No new inning can start 2 hours 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.
