Myth: Kicking order must be boy, girl, boy, girl
Fact: Kicking order can be any kind of order, as long as the line up remains the same throughout the game.
Per section 4 of the official rules, (if desired) a written kicking order will be exchanged between the team captains, before the game begins. If the orders are NOT exchanged, no claims can be made from either captain, only the Head Referee.
Any game may be ended at the discretion of the losing team, if losing by 7 or more runs at the end of any inning. This will be marked as a regulation game.
When the ball is kicked, thrown, or deflected into foul territory. We play in enclosed fields, so the overthrow rule will only be enforced automatically if the ball goes over the fences outside the field, or into the dugout. If the ball goes into foul territory inside the fence, the pitcher may raise both arms in the air to voluntarily call the overthrow rule. This gives the defense the opportunity to get the ball back to the pitcher. If the defense makes a play on the ball (throws the ball in an attempt to get a runner out), the game is on and no overthrow will be called.
When you are up at bat, keep these things in mind:
Everyone's always yelling, tag up, what does it mean?! If a ball is caught before you can proceed to the next base, you have to go back and tag the base you were on before moving forward.
Please hit/step on the OUTSIDE BAG when running to first base! The inside bag is for the first baseman and there are two so we avoid collisions. Failure to use the outside bag as a runner will result in an out. Also, if a first baseman.
