In case of a rain-shortened tournament, Bracket games can be deemed official after 2 ½ innings of play (with home team winning) or 45 minutes of elapsed game time. This policy will only be used through Bracket play. In addition, if games are cancelled due to weather, there may be an adjustment in application of the tie-breaking procedures.
A roster Protest must be made before the 1st pitch of the 3rd inning. If a player is caught on a line up card that is not on the USSSA online Roster or a Guest Player/Pick up list the offending team will receive a 7-0 Loss. The Player will not be eligible to continue playing. The offending Team will not be eliminated from the tournament unless the 7-0 loss put the team out of the event.
If the player is on the current roster but has not signed the Covid Waiver they will be removed from the game but as long as the team can continue to play with correct number of players it will not be penalized. The player can return the next game if Parent signs the Covid Waiver.
If event Rains out in the "IF" game and we do not have a clear winner after 2 1/2 innings then both teams will be Declared Co Champions (teams will flip for 1st and 2nd place awards)
No Refunds for the Tournament or for Weekend passes after event Starts
