REQUIRED PRACTICES

 

NEW FOR THE 2012 SEASON FOR ALL LEVELS – JV/VARSITY:

Under the NYSPHSAA Sports Standards schools must have 10 team practices before participating

in an interscholastic scrimmage, with position players practicing in 6 of the 10 and the battery in

8 of the 10 to be eligible.  In order to be eligible for play in an interscholastic contest schools must

hold 15 team practices, with position players practicing in 8 of the 15 and the battery in 13 of the 15

to be eligible. At the Modified Level all players must have 10 practices to be eligible to participate

in an interscholastic scrimmage and 12 practices to be eligible to participate in a contest.

 

 

SCRIMMAGES

 

A baseball scrimmage must include free substitutions and lineup cards will not be exchanged.

Scrimmages must also include one or more of the following:

1. Play six (6) outs per half inning (example - 3 outs clear the field/ 3 more outs).

2. Batting order must be altered or modified to include more batters than rulespermit.

3. Start with a runner(s) on base with a predetermined situation for at least two

    (2) full innings.

 

 

SCHEDULING

 

The maximum number of games scheduled and played during the regular season is 20 (excluding

sectional games).  Individuals may participate in two regulation games per day with at least a 15

minute rest between games.  All tournament games - including southern trips - count as games

towards schedule and final record.

 

Schedules must be submitted to your league coordinator by Friday, March 24, 2017.  Any games

scheduled after May 16th will not count towards sectional seeding.

 

All contest must be scheduled 7 inning games.  Teams scheduling 5 inning games – single or

double headers – will result in forfeit for both teams.  In October 1998 the NYSPHSAA waived

baseball's 10 run rule.  A league or section may not use the rule without the approval of the

NYSPHSAA's governing board.  This does not prohibit an individual school or coach ending a

contest prior to its full completion for whatever reason.

 

Forfeits: Any team that does not accept a make-up date that is reasonable between the 2

teams before the last play date, will be forced to forfeit as determined by the Section

V Executive Committee.

 

This process will be initiated by one school and submitted in writing to the Baseball

Coordinator. The Baseball Coordinator will then contact the opposing

school/coach. After receiving information from both parties, a decision will be made

by the Section V Baseball Executive Committee.

 

For the purpose of an appeal on any baseball related ruling: The coordinator along

with individual(s) from the baseball committee will hear the appeal and make an additional

ruling.

 

The last play date is Tuesday, May 16, 2017.  Any games played after May 16th will not count

towards sectional seeding.

 

Game results (record and seeding points) must be reported to your Class Coordinator

weekly, starting Monday, April 17th.  With full cooperation, up to date records, points, and

seedings will be posted on the Section V Official Baseball Website.

SUSPENDED GAME DURING REGULAR SEASON PLAY

 

       1)     An official game is 5 innings or 4 and one-half if the home team is ahead. If a

winner can be determined and no more baseball can be played that day, the game is

over and a winner is declared. The game does not have to go 7 innings.

       ** This does not apply if 2nd game of double header.

 

       2)     If a game is stopped before it becomes an official game, the game is a suspended

game. This game will be picked up at that point. Score, inning, count of batter etc.

should all be recorded in scorebook.

 

       3)     If the game is stopped after having gone long enough to be an official game,

however a winner cannot be determined due to a tied score. This game becomes a

tied/suspended game at that point. This game will be picked up at that point. Score,

inning, count of batter etc. should all be recorded in scorebook.

 

       4)     If a game is stopped after having gone long enough to become an official game and;

 

a) The visitors score a run or runs in the top half of the inning. The game reverts

    back to the last completed inning and either a winner is declared or we have a tied/

    suspended game. Or,

 

b) The visitors score a run or runs in the top half of the inning and the home

    team does not complete their at bat. The game reverts back to the last completed

    inning and either a winner is declared or we have a tied/suspended game. If we have a

    tied/suspended game we pick up from that point (Visitors runs in the top half of the

    inning and home team runs in bottom half count). This game will be picked up at

    that point. Score, inning, count of batter etc. should all be recorded in scorebook.

 

c) The home team ties the game in the bottom half of the inning but doesn’t

    complete the inning. If we cannot play anymore we have a tied/suspended game at

    that point. This game will be picked up at that point. Score, inning, count of batter,

    etc., should all be recorded in scorebook. Or,

 

d) The home team takes the lead in the bottom half of the 5th or 6th inning,

    then game is called. At that point the home team is declared the winner.

for the rights of others. 

 

We are further committed to the belief that schools participating in sectional

activities should be held responsible for the conduct of their players, coaches,

faculty members, and spectators.  Conduct which is detrimental to the educational

probation, suspension from a particular sport, or suspension from sectional activities.

NYSPHSAA THUNDER & LIGHTNING POLICY

              (Revised 10/20/08)

 

        Applies to regular season through NYSPHSAA Finals:

 

        Thunder and lightning necessitates that contests be suspended. The occurrence of

        thunder and/or lightning is not subject to interpretation or discussion - thunder is

        thunder, lightning is lightning.

           a) With your site administrator, set up a plan for shelter prior to the start of any

              contest.

 

       When thunder is heard and/or when lightning is seen, the following procedures should

       be adhered to:

           a) Suspend play and direct participants to go to shelter, a building normally occupied

              by the public or if a building is unavailable, participants should go inside a vehicle

              with a solid metal top (e.g. bus, van, car).

           b) Do not permit people to stand under or near a tree; and have all stay away from

               poles, antennas, towers and underground watering systems.

           c) After thunder and/or lightning have left the area, wait 30 minutes after the last

              boom is heard or strike is seen before resuming play or competition.

 

 

SECTION V MILEAGE POLICY

 

1.     In Sectional rounds other than semis or finals, 75 miles will be the maximum one

      way mileage when there is school for either school the next day.  In the event that

      there is a need to choose a neutral site neither school should travel more than 50

      miles.  Any advantage should be given to the higher seed as the sport committee

      moves from the center point.

 

2.   In Sectional rounds other than semis or finals, where there is no school the next

      day for either school and the mileage exceeds 75 miles, the contests will be held

      at the higher seed.  The visiting team may petition the sports committee to play the

      following day.  Final decision will rest with the committee.

 

3.   For semis and finals, any site including predetermined sites may be appealed

      individually or jointly to the respective sports committee for a change of venue. 

      Final decision for such a request rests with the sports committee.

 

4.     It is recommended that joint appeals to the committee be honored except when

      extenuating circumstances are present.

 

  Note:    As approved by Section V, all sports will use www.mapquest.com as the official

                guide for mileage distance.  Schools will be given an appropriate period of time, as

                determined by the Executive Committee, to appeal a mileage they feel is incorrect.

 

                The mileage of the two competing schools will be determined in both directions                                              

                (regardless of which team is traveling) and the shortest distance will always be

                used.
