PONY Softball Rules: 12 & Under, 14 & Under, 16 & Under and 18 & Under

In the event of inclement weather, the Nutmeg State Games Administration reserves the right to modify the schedule and all tournament rules in order to safely and fairly end the tournament successfully.

Game format will be:

  • Game length will be seven innings for all Age Division

  • 1 hour and 20 minute time limit for preliminary round games.

All coaches are responsible for assuring that all players are properly equipped.

  • Teams are to provide their own practice balls.

  • Any player or coach ejected from a game will be disqualified from further play!

  • Home and Away Teams will be determined each game by a coin toss conducted by the Umpire or Nutmeg State Games Event Staff.

All teams are required to provide an official score keeper as part of their roster. We strongly recommend that the score keeper be an adult and must be present at each contest. The home team's (which will be determined by a coin toss before each game) score keeper will be the official score keeper for that game with the visiting team also keeping score as a secondary or back up score book. The official score keeper will sit with the administration and volunteers at the scorer’s table or tent during the contest. The score keeper is now part of your roster and will be treated as a member of your team.

Due to the fact that all competition brackets are ROUND ROBIN formats, a team may not intentionally forfeit a contest; even though the game may have no consequence on the seeding of the tournament at the conclusion of round robin play.  Any team intentionally forfeiting a contest will be disqualified from further competition and the remaining teams will be re-seeded.
