and freshman 11/12. This is only an option. Playing 10
in farm league and 9 in minor and freshman is allowed.
Opting to bat all available players must be
declared before the game starts.
If this option is used, you must finish with the
same number of batters you started with.
If this option is used and a player cannot bat in
their allotted slot, an out will be called every time
that player is scheduled to bat (remainder of the game).
Minimum number of players (10) in farm league and
9 in minor and freshman must be maintained at all times.
If batting all available players, “Free Defensive
Substitution” is allowed. Batting order must be
maintained at all times.
