Little League is implementing the 3rd strike drop rule to Majors for to 2012:

However local league leagues have the option of NOT to use this for the regular season but for tournament play the rule will be used on the 12’s & 11’s not the 10’s division.

6.05 - A batter is out when -

(b) Little League (Majors)/Junior/Senior/Big League –

(1) a third strike is legally caught by the catcher;

(2) a third strike is not caught by the catcher when first base is occupied before two

are out. Minor League and Tee Ball: A third strike is caught or not caught by the

catcher. Option: A local league may elect to apply the Minor League and Tee Ball

rule for the Little League (Major Division) for the regular season.

Summary and Implementation: During the 2012 season, for the Major Baseball Division, players

may advance on a third strike that is not caught in flight by the catcher. However, local leagues may

opt to use the Minor League and Tee Ball rule noted above, for the Major Baseball Division, instead.

This option applies only for the regular season. In Tournament play, the rule will be implemented as

noted above for the Majors Division. The rule for tournament play in 10-11 is noted below.

IT SHOULD BE ADVISABLE THAT EVERY LEAGUE MAKE IT AWARE TO UMPIRES IF THIS RULE WILL BE USED SINCE GUYS LIKE MYSELF DO MULTIPLE TOWNS

 

Rule 6.06(d) in the Baseball Rule Book has been amended to read:

A batter is out for illegal action when -

(d) The batter enters the batter’s box with one or both feet entirely on the ground with

an illegal bat (see bat specifications rule 1.10) or is discovered having used an illegal bat

prior to the next player entering the batter’s box.

Note: If the infraction is discovered before the next player enters the batter’s box

following the turn at bat of the player who used an illegal bat:

1) The manager of the defense may advise the plate umpire of a decision to decline the

penalty and accept the play. Such election shall be made immediately at the end of

the play.

2) For the first violation, the offensive team will lose one eligible adult base coach for

the duration of the game.

3) For the second violation, the manager of the team will be ejected from the game.

Any subsequent violation will result in the newly designated manager being ejected.

Summary and Implementation: For the 2012 season, this imposes penalties for the use of an

illegal bat in a game.

MAKE SURE BATS ARE LEGAL BEFORE SEASON PLAY STARTS

Another reworded rule is:

Rule 1.11(j) in all rule books has been amended to read:

Players must not wear jewelry such as, but not limited to, rings, watches, earrings,

bracelets, necklaces, nor any hard cosmetic/decorative items. This rule applies regardless

of the composition of such jewelry, hard cosmetic item or hard decorative item.

(EXCEPTION: Jewelry that alerts medical personnel to a specific condition is

permissible.)

Summary and Implementation: For the 2012 season, the added language prohibits players from wearing any jewelry, regardless of composition.

SIMPLE, PLAYERS CAN NOT WEAR ANYTHING UNLESS IT IS A MEDICAL ALERT BRACLET.
