BASIC EVENT RULES (all divisions)
 
  • All pool play games are 7 innings OR 2 hour time limits (unless weather dictates a change).  Time limits are not drop dead.  No new inning can start after time limit is reached.  If a game is tied after 7 innings and time is still left - the game will go to "California Tie Breaker" - last batted out will start inning at 2nd base with 0 outs.  Both teams will play this way til there is a winner or time limit is reached.  POOL PLAY & CONSOLATION GAMES CAN END IN A TIE.
  • All Games run rule is 10 after 5 innings.
  • During POOL PLAY & ALL PLAYOFF GAMES - teams may hit up to 10 players at one time.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  During CONSOLATION GAMES ONLY you may hit up to 11 if you wish.  If you choose to hit 10, you can have a DH & EH in your lineup.  You may hit 9 if you choose, but no more than 10 players can be in your starting lineup during pool play & playoff games.  Again, no exceptions.  
  • Teams may have a courtesy runner for the catcher &/or pitcher if they wish.  The player must be someone that has not played previously in that game and you cannot use the same player to run for both pitcher & catcher (if they are both hitting).  If you have used all bench players, you may use the last batted out as a courtesy runner.  
  • Home Team for POOL PLAY, CHAMPIONSHIP & CONSOLATION games is determined by a coin flip.  This is done with the PW Scorekeeper that is overseeing your game, or between the two coaches prior to the game.  If that occurs, please make sure the scorekeeper knows who is home team.
  • Home Team for all PLAYOFF Games (not championships) is the higher seed
  • There is no time limit on Championship Games - it is played to completion or run rule.
  • Again, when in doubt, National High School Rules Apply (with regards to substitutions, re-entry, mound visits, etc.)

EJECTIONS (all divisions)
 
If a PLAYER is ejected and it is determined by the Tournament Director/Site Director/Umpire Crew Chief/Umpires involved in game, that the ejection, while warranted, was within normal baseball game play...then the player may be able to return for the next game.  In other words, if it was just a bang, bang aggressive play or a player looses his temper for a quick moment, and doesn't turn it into a malicious event or scene, he may be given permission to return for the next game played.  
 
If a PLAYER is ejected and it is determined to be excessive or malicious, or he carries on and turns it into a scene, then he will be out for the remainder of that game AND the following game.  Does not matter if the next game is a playoff game or a pool play game.  
 
If a MANAGER (Head Coach) is ejected and it is not over an incident that turns into a major scene, then he will sit out the remainder of that game, BUT he may return to coach from the dugout only for the next game.  This means he can be with his players in the dugout, but cannot come out onto the field for any reason.  This is done so that a team without many coaches is not punished or has to have a parent running the team for a game.  
 
If an ASST COACH is ejected for any reason - he is out for the remainder of that game AND the next game, no exceptions, doesn't matter the situation.  Assistant Coaches should not approach umpires at any point to argue a call.  That should be left to the manager only.  
 
It should be noted that coaches are required to control their parents.  We know games get intense and things happen.  Please let the umpires, coaches on the field or PW staff handle issues, not a screaming parent.  If a parent is unruly and cannot be controlled, the Head Coach will be ejected if necessary along with the parent being asked to leave the facility.  
 
 
FUTURES DIVISION
 
  • BBCOR Bats or WOOD Bats can be used.  
  • Players must be 15 years of age or younger for this event.  If a player turns 16 AFTER Sept. 1st, then he is PW age 15 for the fall.  Grad year always is #1 factor as that is the age group the kids play with year round.  
  • 4 Pool Play Games
  • Top 2 teams will play for a Championship on Sunday at Mets Complex (Tradition Field)

UNDERCLASS DIVISION
 
  • WOOD Bats only (BAUM, Composite Wood, etc are ok)
  • Players must be 16 years of age or younger for this event.  If a player turns 17 AFTER Sept. 1st, then he is PW age 16 for the fall.  Grad year is always #1 factor as that is the age group the kids play with year round.
  • 3 Pool Play Games - Consolation Games for teams that do not advance (Mandatory to play)
  • Top 8 teams advance to playoffs
  • Top 4 seeds will be home team in playoffs
  • Quarterfinals:  #1 vs. #8, #2 vs. #7, #3 vs. #6, #4 vs. #5
  • Semi Finals:  1/8 Winner vs. 4/5 Winner,    2/7 Winner vs. 3/6 Winner
  • Championship & Runner Up teams will receive shirts.  Winning team will receive a set of Phoenix Wood Bats for the players
 
UPPERCLASS DIVISION
 
  • WOOD Bats Only (Baum, Composite Wood, etc are ok)
  • Players must be 18 years of age or younger for this event.  If a player turns 19 AFTER Sept. 1st, then he is PW age 18U for the fall.  Grad year is always #1 factor as that is the age group the kids play in.  But a 2014 grad can play if they are 18 on Sept 1st.  
  • 3 Pool Play Games - Consolation Games for teams that do not advance (Mandatory to play)
  • Top teams from each pool advances to Quarterfinals (8 pools, 4 teams in each pool)
  • Quarterfinals:  #1 vs. #8, #2 vs. #7, #3 vs. #6, #4 vs. #5
  • Semi Finals:  1/8 Winner vs. 4/5 Winner,   2/7 Winner vs. 3/6 Winner
  • Championship & Runner Up teams will receive shirts.  Winning team will receive a set of Phoenix Wood Bats for the players
 
FOR ALL DIVISIONS:  A player is allowed to play on 2 different teams, AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT IN THE SAME DIVISION & OF LEAGUE AGE.  If you have an Upperclass player that is league age 16, as long as he is rostered properly on both teams, he can play on your 16U team if you need him to.  Underclass & Futures Players can move up to play on your other teams because everyone in the entire event is league age for Upperclass anyway.  Prospect Wire treats each Division as a separate event.  
 
PLAYERS CANNOT, AT ANY TIME, PLAY FOR 2 DIFFERENT TEAMS IN THE SAME DIVISION.  They can only move between divisions if you need them to.  They must be rostered on both however.  
 
 
ROSTER REQUIREMENTS
 
  • For this event, the online roster is used for statistics, scouting & scouting packets given to colleges that come through the front gates.  The online roster, while very important to the event, will not be the #1 determining factor for players in this event.  
  • The LINE UP CARD you submit to the home plate umpire & scorekeeper is the #1 determining factor for players during a game.  All players, including subs, must clearly be listed on your lineup card with correct jersey #'s.  If a team calls a player into question, the line up card will be reviewed first.  
  • If a player is not on your online roster BUT is listed on the 1st game's line up card...then he is ok to play in the event.  However, if you are playing in your 3rd pool play game and suddenly a player that was not on your lineup card shows up, then we will go to the online roster to determine if that player is allowed to be in the event.  The easiest way to avoid issues is to list every player you think MIGHT be coming to play for you, on your roster online.  This removes all doubt.  That way if you accidentally leave someone off a lineup card and he shows up late (for example) then your job is to report that to the home plate umpire & scorekeeper so he can be properly added during the game.  Failure to do so could result in an illegal player.  
  • Avoid all issues - make sure online rosters are correct and up to date with jersey #'s & names.  List players, even if they are not 100% sure they are coming.  Make sure all lineup cards have player names, positions & jersey #'s listed (including subs)
If there is a question, the manager must notify the umpire of the problem.  If it can be fixed and keep the game moving, please try to do so.  If a game is protested in the middle of the game, it must be properly expressed to both the home plate umpire AND the opposing coach, as well as the PW Scorekeeper.  The game will continue play to completion (unless a ruling can be made on the spot) and after the game the TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR will make the final decision based on all facts presented.  
 
 
FORFEITS & PROTESTED GAMES
 
If a game is forfeited, the final score used will be 7-0 (1 run for each inning of play).  This is done for "Tie Breaker" reasons
 
If a forfeited game is played to completion, the final score will remain REGARDLESS OF RESULT.  If the winner needs to be changed, we will do so.  But the game's score will remain for tie breaker purposes.  If you protest a game, make sure to play it to completion because the runs will count.  
 
 
TIE BREAKERS
 
The tie breakers PW uses for this event, with regards to standings, are as follows (in order of determining factor)
 
1.)  Head to Head pool play competition.  (every team plays each other in pool play, so head to head will be used as #1 tie breaker.)
2.)  AVERAGE Runs Allowed during pool play games.  (if you play 3 pool play games, and give up a total of 8 runs, then your A.R.A. = 2.67
3.)  AVERAGE Runs Scored during pool play games.
4.)  Total Difference between Runs Scored & Runs Allowed during pool play games (if you score 20 and give up 10 in pool play, that is +10)
 
***Please note, if more than 2 teams in a pool have the same record (i.e. - 3 teams in the pool somehow finish 2-1, and 1 team did not beat the other 2 teams in pool play) then Head to Head is not used and it goes to Tie Breaker #2 above.  Example - 3 teams all finish 2-1 in pool play, and each beat each other, then head to head is not used)
