Game Rules

2017 Playing Rules

Updates and clarifications to last year's rules are highlighted on the rules sheet.

KVBSA strongly encourages all managers to keep a copy of the playing rules in their possession during games. Also, home team managers should make a copy of the rules available to the umpires.

If you have a smartphone, you may want to copy the PDF version of the rules to your phone for reference. The free iBooks app allows you to view PDFs on an iPhone. The free Adobe Reader app allows you to view PDFs on an Android phone.
