- A USSSA Red Dot Classic Plus ball will only be used when a male is up to bat. The umpire has the right to eject any ball considered by him or her to be unplayable.
- Home run rule is 3 and 1 up single rule.- Once both teams hit 3 homeruns each, any team can hit 1 homerun that allows the other team the opportunity to hit 1. Any homeruns hit over by the same team will count as a single until the opposing team hits a homerun.
