There is a mercy rule if one team is leading by 10 or more runs after 3 1/2 innings.
Regulation VI PITCHERS in the Baseball Rule Book has been amended to read, in part:
(a) Any player on a regular season team may pitch. Exception:
Any player, who has played the position of catcher in four (4) or more
innings in a game, is not eligible to pitch on that calendar day.
Summary and Implementation: Beginning
immediately, this prohibits a player who has played the position of
catcher in any part of four innings in a game from being used as a
pitcher at any time on that calendar day. This applies to all baseball
divisions, and will apply to the International Tournament as well.
Regulation VI (k) in the Baseball Rule Book has been amended to read:
(k) Pitching in more than one game in a day:
Minor League and Little League - A player may not pitch in more than one game in a day;
Junior League and Senior League - A
player may be used as a pitcher in up to two games in a day.
(Exception: If the player pitched 31 or more pitches in the first game,
that player may not pitch in the second game on that day);
Big League - A player may be used as a pitcher in up to two games in a day.
