Friday and another one Saturday or Sunday. No games during the week.
Make up Game Procedure: Games, if the involved teams elect, will be made up on the Sunday following a rain out. The
home team of the rained out will provide the field and umpire. Games will not be made up if the reschedule does not permit.
(The two coaches should agree to the makeup date.). As a policy, it is recommended that the Sunday pattern be used by all
teams for make-ups.

First round games may be held at member’s sites. The league will pay for umpires during play-off and championship game.
Supply game balls and trophies for first and second place teams. Team position in play-off’s we are determined
in the following order; Winning Percentage (%), Head to Head and then run’s allowed. After that would be flip of a coin.
