Notes from the Training Staff – September 2015

With September and Fall, come the Fall Ball Games.   And Remember for September…Fall Ball games are called the Nonchampionship Segment in the Rule Book.  Several administrative playing rules can be set aside or modified.  All other conduct rules may not be altered.  Certain rule exceptions may be used and must be agreed upon and communicated to the umpire crew not later than the pregame meeting.

Otherwise, all other conduct and playing rules may not be altered and all NCAA member institutions are required to conduct their intercollegiate contests according to the NCAA Softball Rules.  And in California Community Colleges have also agreed to play their contests according to the NCAA Rule Book.

Review the article which covers the Fall Ball rules for 2015 in the Resources section and the Rules Corner sub-section.
