Section 1. Limited to league ages 7, 8 & 9. Teams are selected by draft and are normally but not necessarily limited to a roster of 12 players. Player candidates must have attended a tryout to be drafted.

Section 2. Continuous Batting Order shall be used in this division. Defensively, only 9 players may be on the field and minimum playtime rules are in effect.

Section 3. The offensive team is retired when either the defensive team completes three outs or the offensive team has scored 5 runs in the inning; except in the 6th inning or beyond there is no run limit.

Section 4. Player/Coach pitch will be used during the entire season. After four balls, an offensive coach will come onto the field to complete the batters turn at bat. Coach will assume strike count that the batter currently has. The umpire shall continue to call balls and strikes until either the ball is put in play, or the batter strikes out. Offensive team must still have a coach in dugout while coach is on the field pitching. The defensive team’s pitcher must remain by the pitcher’s mound. The pitcher cannot go play another position. During coach pitch, the coach will pitch to the player from the front of the pitcher’s mound.

Section 5. Refer to “Pitch Count” restrictions put forth by Little League.

Section 6. During the 1st half of the season, base runners may only advance one base per steal attempt. This rule is to help encourage catchers to attempt to throw out base runners without further consequence of a bad throw.

Section 7. There will be no stealing of home plate except on passed balls where the pitched ball gets by the catcher. A player may not steal home on a ball being returned to the pitcher.

Section 8. A runner attempting to advance towards home while stealing or on passed balls, that then retreats towards 3rd, gives up the right to score during that play and is at the risk of being tagged out on the retreat towards 3rd.

Section 9. AA Baseball Division Champions will be determined by a playoff system which will be played at the conclusion of the regular season. See Article XXX for details about the playoffs.
