Event Updates


Let it be said now, it is not good etiquette to pick up others balls in these types of events. If you are ball hunting and want to return all marked balls, great. If not, no not pick up a ball that is not yours. Ferguson has a locked fence, always see the director to get in, do not clime or shimmy your way to the balls. There are cameras and the police will be dispatched.

Teams may start with 8 and add up to 10.  Any added players must be added at the bottom of the lineup. No penalty for starting with 8 or 9.

Courtesy (Bandit) Runner

  • The Bandit Runner (BR) may be anyone on the roster.
  • The BR must be designated before the game begins This is tied to the player and not a position in the lineup or on the roster.
  • The BR will be the Bandit Runner for the remainder of the game. The BR may run for anyone at any time.
  • If the BR is also in the batting lineup, and his turn at bat occurs while he is on base, his position in the batting order will be an out. If the BR’s “Turn at Bat” occurs and the BR is ON BASE, an out will be recorded for his position in the batting order. There are NO exceptions. His “turn at bat” occurs when the previous batters turn at bat has ended. “Play Ball” or “Batter Up” need not be indicated for his turn at bat to occur. There shall be no other penalty other than an out.
  • The BR role may not be substituted. A Bandit Runner may be replaced on the base only by the player he is running for at the time. The Bandit Runner role is then lost for the remainder of the game.
  • If anyone other that the BR assumes a position on the base to run for another player and is not announced as a legal substitute the baserunners will be declared out.

Floating Rubber

  • Pitchers will not be required to “toe” the pitching rubber. They may be up to 6’ behind the pitching rubber and within the pitching box.

Field Etiquette

It is imperative that the coach knows he is responsible for all his players, coaches and spectators! 

Coaches: Only rostered players on the field and in the dug outs! Scorekeepers too! (they can be in the dugout or field). If players or spectators are asked to leave, failure to comply can result in forfeiture.
