rULES OF PLAY
7U Coach Pitch
Iowa USSSA Specific Rules
A line will be drawn halfway between bases. Runners beyond this line when an infielder has control of the ball on the infield will be awarded the next base. Runners not beyond this line when the infielder has control of the ball on the infield shall return to the proceeding base.
The play will be ruled dead by the umpire, and no runner may advance, when the infielder has control of the ball in the infield and raises his hands into the air. Infield is defined as the dirt area inside the foul lines. The ruling of when the ball is dead and the position of the base runners in relation to the halfway line is a judgment call by the umpire and should not be disputed!
7CP now uses real baseballs and not level 5 balls.
