Safety Rules

Let's all work together to prevent unnecessary injuries by adhering closely to the following, frequently overlooked, Little league Baseball rules:

1. Catchers must wear a catcher's helmet and mask while assisting a coach with batting practice.

2. Every catcher's mask must have a dangling throat protector, including "hockey style" helmets.

3. Batting rings (doughnuts) are never permitted at any level.

4. Only one player may touch a bat at one time. There is never an on-deck batter permitted, nor should a player be "holding" a bat in the dugout. (Exception: when a helmeted player goes out to retrieve a dropped bat between batters.)

5. Coaches may never warm up a pitcher at any time, including practice. Only a properly helmeted catcher may warm up a pitcher.

6. Teams must not have meetings on the dirt in front of the dugout at any time, including practice.

7. A pitcher may not wear a long sleeve white or light-colored undershirt, multi-colored glove, batting glove, or wrist shield while pitching.

8. Players may not leave the dugout during a game without permission from an umpire.

9. Parents, brothers, sisters, relatives, and friends who are not members of the team are not permitted in the dugout at any time.

10. Metal cleats (except in Seniors baseball), chains, nose rings, religious medals, watches, and other jewelry must not be worn during practice or games. (Exception: a properly secured medical alert tag.)
