In a little league game a player was inserted into the lineup but was injured during the in-between innings warmup.This player was taken out and a replacement player put in.If there are no eligible players on the bench,doesn't the opposing team get to select who goes in out of the bench players?Also, can the injured player be put in as a "special runner" prior to completing and being removed from line-up his required playing time? If this game was suspended would the injured player be required to enter the line-up immediately,if healthy,when the game is resumed?

Yes the opposing coach would pick who would re-enter.

4.17 - If during a game either team is unable to place nine (9) players on the field due to injury or ejection, the opposing manager shall select a player to re-enter the lineup. A player ejected from the game is not eligible for re-entry. If no players are available for reentry, or if a team refuses to place nine (9) players on the field, this shall not be grounds for automatic forfeiture but shall be referred to the Board of Directors for a decision. Note: A game may not be continued with less than nine (9) players on each team.

"The Right Call" Casebook
Note: Opposing manager (or coach in manager's absence) picks the player to reenter. However, any player ejected may not reenter.

__________

As far as a pinch runner, only a player who is not in the batting order may pinch run.

7.14 - Once each inning a team may utilize a player who is not in the batting order as a special pinch-runner for any offensive player. The player for whom the pinch-runner runs is not subject to removal from the lineup. If the pinch runner remains in the game as a substitute defensive or offensive player, the player may not be used again as a pinch runner while in the batting order. However, if removed for another substitute that player or any player not in the line up, is again eligible to be used as a pinch runner.

Rule Change for 2005- One time per game per player.

"The Right Call" Casebook
Play 7-16: Bottom of the seventh inning, no outs and tie score. Billy strokes a single; however, he/she is also the team's slowest runner. In an attempt to get speed in the game, the manager wants to use Johnny as a "special pinch-runner." Johnny had been in the game in innings three through six. Is this legal?
Ruling: YES. A player not currently in the line up may be used through out the game.

________

As for your last question, I would think if the player was able to play, he would need to or the game would be subject to protest for not meeting play requirements. Don't quote me on this one.
