American Legion rules

Does American Legion baseball have its own code and rule book? Does it use OBR with some exceptions?

I played American Legion baseball from 1964 through 1967, and as far as I remember, we used straight OBR.

  1. Get a copy of OBR (MLB)rules.
  2. Go to American Legion web site and look at the drop down under Rules & Forms. Download .pdf's as needed!
Also note that there is a helmet rule for the coaches.

That was before metal bats, and just after Abner Doubleday died, wasn't it?

OBR with some exceptions. Likely straight OBR in the 60's, wood bats, and no FPSR.

Definitely no FPSR or, for that matter, any prohibition against crashes. I was crashed several times. Once, when the collision (at 1B) prevented me from making a good throw home to get a runner, my coach upbraided me for "letting one of those *******s knock you down."

Hey, the site automatically "asterisked" my word!


The coach used the "b" word, applied to people born out of wedlock.
