SCHUYLKILL COUNTY TEENER LEAGUE

  JUNIOR LEAGUE RULES 2017

Junior managers and coaches will have their own meetings during the year. All Junior managers and coaches are required to attend the meetings. If, your team has a person that is in charge of the organization, he may attend the meetings.

A SENIOR and JUNIOR roster will be submitted to the league for validation. A copy of the Junior and Senior roster will be given to both Managers (Senior and Junior) for each organization. Teams can police themselves.

The fee for each Junior team will be $100. This will help pay for playoff umpires. Also, each team will be responsible for 2 balls for each playoff game.

RULES

Each Senior Team can have (3) 15 year olds on its roster that will be considered "ALTERNATES."

Alternates can play on the Senior team but will be allowed to also play on the Junior team whenever it's team needs players. Any alternate may transition down to play in a Junior Division game, providing the team is short players. This shall not be an everyday occurrence. A phone call, to the League Representative in charge, will have to be made whenever you have to use an alternate. 

If, the Junior Manager assumes he will be "missing players" and asks alternates to participate in the game but the original "missing players" show up before the game starts, the alternates can not enter the game until the fourth inning.

Keep in mind that you can play 10 boys , using an EH. If you have 9 boys from the Junior roster show up then the Alternate has to be in the EH spot .

You must always start the game with Junior roster players whenever possible. They must play at least the first 3 innings.

You may have less skilled 15 year olds on the Junior Roster. These 15 year olds are on the Junior Roster permanently. They cannot transition to Senior games and transition back to Junior games. Please remember the Junior League is for 13 and 14 year olds, therefore, if you have a 15 year old on the roster he is supposed to be less skilled to play on the Senior Team. Again, if he is on the permanent Junior roster, he cannot participate in a Senior game. If, required to be added to the Senior roster, he automatically becomes part of that Senior Roster permanently.

15 yr.olds are never allowed to pitch in Junior games 

If a town has 1 SENIOR TEAM and 2 JUNIOR TEAMS the (3 alternates ) can transition down on either Junior Team whenever they are short players. A phone call must be made!

If a town has 2 Senior teams and 1 Junior team, a combination of 3 players from the two Senior teams can play down on the Junior team. A phone call must be made.

If you have 2 Senior teams and 2 Junior teams, 3 Alternates from each Senior team will be given to each Junior Roster.

The Playoffs will consist of all Junior Teams that can field at least NINE 13 and 14 year olds on a roster. You can not use 15 year olds. If your team does not have enough boys for the playoffs, you will forfeit your playoff spot.

If, your Local Little League team is finished with their league play and or finished with All Stars , you may put that player on your roster if you might be short. He can not be on 2 rosters and playing on both at the same time.

It will be Single elimination Playoffs.

All Regular season "make up" games will be played within 14 days. If a date cannot be agreed on in those 14 days , the chairman or president will pick a date. If that date can not be agreed on, then one or both teams will be fined $25.and a forfeit. The $25 will have to be paid by the All-Star/Playoff meeting or the team will not participate in the Playoffs.
