Basic Differences between leagues: Noncompetitive Leagues Everyone hits Everyone scores There are no outs All games end in a tie Players are in the field while other teams hit, but defense is not a priority 2 inning games (1 hour) We have "Buddies" to help players Coaches Pitch
Competitive League We play with baseball rules so outs are recorded. Innings are either 3 outs or 5 runs scored. 4 inning games Games can end in win, loss, or tie We still don't have strike outs, but you can get out if the defense makes a play, catches the ball, tags you out, etc. Players play defensive positions Coaches Pitch
