NEW RULES FOR 2015
WEST MILWAUKEE RULE- All balls that strike a light pole "in the field of play" at West Milwaukee Park will now be considered live no matter where on the pole the ball is struck. A home run will be considered when a batted ball strikes a light pole and then goes over the outfield fence.
HOME RUN RULE- For ALL home runs hit, players are REQUIRED to touch every base then home plate before leaving the field. Failure to do so, by any/all players, will result in automatic outs and runs will not be counted.
PLAYER REGISTRATION / ROSTERS- The first (11) players listed on the team roster will pay the residents fee regardless of whether they are a Milwaukee County resident or not. No payment is required for more than (15) players registered on a team.
Roster forms are in a fillable PDF format and must be electronically filled out and e-mailed before the first week of the season beginning April 27th, 2015. Any player joining a team after the roster form has been submitted must call or notify the office by phone or e-mail and pay the associated fees before being eligible to play.
PLAYER EJECTION RULE- If a player is ejected from a game and fails to produce a valid picture I.D., both the player and the manager will be suspended from play.
PITCHING RULE- All pitchers have (10) seconds after receiving the ball to proceed with the pitch. If the pitch has not been thrown, the umpire will signal an automatic ball and the count will reset.
