Playing Rules: All PGF tournaments and events will be played using NFHS rules with the following exceptions.

All other divisions will be 43 Feet
If ejected a coach or player must sit out next game.
At check-in all coaches must show proof of a PGF background check.

Tie-breaker will begin at the top of the 8th inning, or top of the next inning after time expires in qualifiers that use time limits. Runner at 2nd base is the last player to complete her turn at bat the previous inning.

Run-Rule, 10 after 4, 8 after 5, 6 after 6.
Time-Limit, No time limit in National & Regional Championship bracket games.

Time limits may be imposed for National/Regional Qualifiers on Bracket games with the permission of the State, Regional or National Director. Time limits for pool games will be posted on the pool schedules based on the time restraints we have on some fields.

Team listed first in pool or top of the bracket to occupy the third base dugout unless a team from the prior game is in that dugout.

Protests to be handled on the field by the UIC of that site, a tournament official and the Umpire who made the call, there will be a $150 cash PGF Protest Fee to be returned if the protest is upheld.

Coin toss for home/visitors will be at home plate before the game begins.

The home team scorebook will be used as the official scorekeeper unless the team has no score book in which case the visitor book may be used. In the complete absence of a scorekeeper from either team, the umpires scorecard will be used. Both teams should check the umpires score card after every inning and after the game.

Jewelry is permitted unless deemed dangerous by the umpires in which case it shall be removed.

Headwear may be mixed and can be any color.
No penalties for the following: exposed undergarments that are not white, grey or team colors, sleeves rolled up, coaches attire

Two offensive players may do warmup swings on the field between innings – first batter of the inning in foul territory but not close to home plate, and the second batter of the inning in the on-deck circle

The tournament director (PGF President/CEO) decides whether media will be allowed on any and all playing fields and all playing facilities. If so, a media area does not have to be drawn on the field.

Softballs must have the PGF mark and be approved by PGF. At this time, Diamond manufactures the only ball with the PGF mark.

A coach from each team must be at the pre-game plate meeting and verify that players/equipment are legal.

RULE CHANGES AS OF 2020:

Unreported substitute rule

An unreported substitution is an appeal play:

  • If the coach in violation informs the plate umpire before the offended teamappeals – no penalty and the unreported player is officially in the game.
  • If reported to the umpire by the opposing team before a pitch is made – nopenalty and the unreported player is officially in the game. If the offense has an unreported player and the defense appeals:
  • If the batter is still at bat and pitches have been thrown – she is called out; all other play while she was at bat is legal.
  • If the batter has completed her at-bat but the next pitch has not been thrown – she is out; all other play as a result of her becoming a batter-runner is nullified.
  • There are other rules if the unreported player is the tie-breaker runner or pinchrunner, if appealed and she is still on any base – she is out; and if a pitch runner

    she is declared officially in the game.
    If the unreported player is appealed by the offense before the defensive coach informs the umpire:

  • If the unreported player has made a play and the next pitch has not been thrown – she is declared officially in the game; the offense has the option of taking the result of the play or having the last batter return and assume the ball/strike count she had before the hit; each base runner must return to the base legally occupied at the time of the last pitch.
  • If the unreported player has made a play and the next pitch has been thrown – she is declared officially in the game and all play will stand.

If the unreported player has not made the last play – she is declared officially in the game and all play will stand

PITCHING RULE CHANGE:

Pitcher’s stride foot positioning

The stride (non-pivot) foot may be on or behind the plate as far back as desired. Once the pitcher initially sets the toe of her stride foot, she may not step, drag or slide it back any farther.

This will be following the NCAA rules for pitchers this season. I have attached the actual rules as stated by the NCAA

Pitcher taking signal

  • Pitcher must take the pitching signal only from the required pitching position (on the pitcher’s plate, hands apart).
  • Hand signals/verbal may come from the dugout prior to the pitcher being on the pitcher’s plate
  • However, armband information must be gathered by the pitcher while on the pitcher’s plate and in the pitching position.
  • Pitching signals from the catcher may be given only when the pitcher is in the pitching position on the pitcher’s plate.NCAA is emphasizing that illegal pitches be called for violations of this rule.

    ORDER OF FINISH-SHORTENED TOURNAMENT In the event that a tournament cannot be played to its completion of berth awards the following procedure will be used to break ties between teams in the same bracket positions if 50% or more of the tournament was completed. If less than 50%was completed all berths return to the PGF Advisory Board for distribution. Head to head competition. The team that advanced the furthest in the winner’s bracket. Won-loss records except among undefeated teams. If only two teams are tied for a position and have played each other, the winner of that game. The teams will be ranked according to fewest runs allowed per game played. The teams will be ranked according to the most runs scored per game played. A coin toss. The Tournament Director shall have the right to initiate procedures to complete the berth assignations at any time in the tournament.
