Kickball Rules

OUTDOOR KICKBALL RULES:

RULES:
Kickball basically follows along the same rules as softball/baseball with a few exceptions. I will post detailed rules later and will give a quick walkthtough at the field.  Here are the basics.

THE GAME:
-The game will be a timed game:
The games will last 50 minutes. One rep from each game should be assigned the timekeeper. If there is less than 10 minutes at the top of an inning, it will be announced that it is the final inning.

Fielding:
-A team can have a max of 10 players on the field if they have 4 females on the field.  9 if they have three females.
-If you have 9 or 10 players on the field, you must field  a catcher, 8 or less, you can leave it empty.
-You may hit a runner with the ball for an out, You can do this by throwing or kicking. A runner is awarded a base for headshot, unless they are sliding.
-Three fielders need to be in the outfield at time of pitch, 1st base and 3rd base cannot encroach more than 7 feet from their base
-Fielders must remain outside of the baseline. Intereference will result in the runner being awarded the base

Batting:
-
The batting order must alternate between genders for as long as possible.
-If a team has less than 3 of each gender, than they must take an out per rotation through the lineup
-Three fouls and you are out
-NO BUNTING BY ANYONE. A bunt is a kick that does not follow through or blatantly hit softly where it does not make an attempt to put the ball in play. This will be considered a foul and if third foul, they are out.
-You must kick the ball within 1 foot of home plate. Anything hit too far in front of the base will be considered a foul. This is to avoid the holes at home plate, but not allow a kicker to attack a pitch.

BASE RUNNING:
-
There is no leading or stealing
-Runner must remain in the baseline
-There is only one base awarded on an overthrow. If a runner is already about to hit a base, then they can take one additional base.
-All play is halted when the ball is in reasonable control within the perimeter of the pitching mound.
-Runner cannot interfere with throws by the fielders, if they do both the runner and the runner they were making a play on are out.
-first base has a safety base. This is a base in foul territory. This should always be used by the runner to minimize the chance of collission.

CASL SPECIFIC:
-Unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated. It is fully up to the league to decide the punsihment for these actions,. It could be game ejection, suspension, or removal from the league without refund. If you are wondering what consists of unsportsmanlike conduct, it is anything that takes away from the enjoyment of your fellow players.
-Close calls: If a play is too tough to call and players cannot come to a conclusion, then the two team reps closest to the play will rock, paper, scissors for a non confrontational
