PBI BASEBALL LEAGUE 2016 FALL INDOOR SEASON 9-12U Rules

AGE LEVELS
9U/10U 46/60
11U/12U 50/70 wood bat

BAT REGULATIONS
On December 30, 2010 Little League International issued a moratorium on composite bats from the Majors Division on down. The PBI Baseball League will follow suit for the 2016-17 indoor season at the 9/10U level. NO “BIG BARREL” BATS MAY BE USED FOR ANY AGE LEVEL OF THE INDOOR LEAGUE. The 11/12U 50/70 division is WOOD BAT ONLY.

PITCHING REGULATIONS
There is a two-inning limit for pitchers in the PBI indoor league. To clarify, an inning is 3 outs so in effect each pitcher is allowed to get 6 outs before being replaced.

AGE CUTOFF
The age cutoff for the PBI Baseball League’s 2016-17 indoor season is August 31 for 9/10U players and April 30 for 11/12U players. Whatever age a player will be on those dates in 2017 is that player’s “league age.” A player may “play up” an age level; he cannot “play down” under any circumstances.
