In what has become something of an annual tradition, I present the latest update of a tournament rules cheat sheet I've been maintaining, updated for 2005 Little League tournament play. The chart is in Acrobat PDF format; to download it, rightclick on the link below and choose "Save Target As..."

2005 Little League Tournament Rules Chart

Please feel free to distribute the file to anyone who may have a use for it.

Dave Hensley

P.S. My apologies to those forum participants who loathe anything related to Little League.

From the article: "No elgible subs - Opposing manager selects player to substitute."

I don't get it. Does LL allow playing with 8? I guess they must. So if a runner gets hurt, the opposing manager can select the slowest player to come in and run for him?

You have 9 players on the field and 2 players on the bench that are ineligible for some reason (they've already been in, their sub hasn't met minimum play reqs, whatever). One of your players on the field gets hurt and leaves you with only 8 eligible players on the field and the two guys on the bench.

Little League rules allow you to re-enter one of your ineligible subs, but the opposing manager gets to decide which one gets to re-enter.

Dave, that's a great chart. I stepped into the vacant UIC position for my kids little league earlier this year, and I'll be handing this to all my umps.

Another rule you may want to call out because it's significantly different than the regular season rule is maximum pitchers per game. In the regular season you can only use 5 pitchers (or a 6th if your 5th gets hurt). In tournament play there is no maximum number of pitchers.

One thing that drives me nuts about LL is the fact that they have a whole separate set of rules and elegibility requirements for tournaments. This is yet more evidence that the entire LL experience is designed around the tournament season. I'd rather see one set of rules used all year, tweaking only things that must be changed to account for the tightly compressed schedules of most tournaments.

Hey, Peace Boy, kiss my ***.

I'll be happy to compare baseball resumes with you anytime.

Here is the big difference with you and me. You care about what your baseball resume looks like. I umpire baseball to get ready for the fall and spring. Compare away if you like.

As I said before, this thread explains everything I need to know. Thank you for the clarification.

Someone told me recently, "If you have to tell everyone your resume, you really have not accomplished much of anything."

Peace

The irony is rich when you say something like that, in a post with a sig that essentially contains your resume.

My signature gives websites to organizations that I play apart of. That is not my resume. My resume would include playoff assignments, years of experience, levels I work and conferences. When I attend camps, they do not care that I sit on a committee. They do care if I have worked certain levels. My signature tells very little about my officiating and umpiring background. As I said before, if you want to compare baseball resumes, go right ahead. Just remember you are the one posting LL rules differences.

Peace

Anyone who would take the time to rip Dave for putting together a useful chart is the one with a problem.

There are a lot of good HS and college umpires who work the LL Tournaments. This chart is helpful to me and the umpires I will be working with this year.

Wink I was not ripping Dave because he is a LL Umpire.

If you are so confident in working LL, then why are all you guys spending so much time trying to justify it?

Of course HS and college umpires are going to work games when their season is over or when they do not have a HS or college game. Just like I do not work hardly any summer baseball, it is a personal choice.

Peace

Jeff:

There is a world of difference between little league umpires and umpires who work little league.
