FIELD LOCATION DIRECTIONS – Livengrin Tourney 3/26/16

  1. A1 = Antheil field 1click for directions (Upper Parking lot of Antheil School)
  2. A2 = Antheil field 2 – click for directions (Lower Parking lot of  Antheil School)
  3. M = Moody Park – click for directions (Park in lot between Lft Fld & Tennis Crts)
  4. C = Carlton Field click for directions

We have lights at field M (Moody Park).  The final few games may be played there if necessary….otherwise, we’re hoping to finish everything up on Field A2 by the BBQ.       The school is called Antheil, but the field names are called Armstrong so they are one in the same.  Easy transition from field to field.

If you TRAVEL between games be sure to HUSTLE to keep the games on schedule!!!!  Tournament Rules will also be re-posted here.

 

2016 Livengrin RFR Tournament Rules

The only NEW rule is the strike zone:  if the ball hits the mat behind the plate it is a strike provided the pitch has reached an arch of at least 6′ but not higher then 12′. 

An illegal pitch can be called by the ump but that must be done so before the ball reaches  the halfway point between the mound and the plate to give the batter adequate warning.

3 Home Run limit per “regulation” game then it’s a Single. The woods in RIGHT field at Carlton is considered a home run. For the Loser’s Bracket Chip and final Chip game(s) ONLY — “IF” the game goes into extra innings then each team is awarded 1 additional Home Run per inning.

Unlimited bases runners, but there are risks to that.  If a runner is on base and it becomes his turn to bat while he’s on base it’s an automatic out plus he forfeits his at bat.  If there are 2 outs at that time then the inning is over.  He does NOT leadoff the next inning.  But, if there is 1 or NO outs at that time an out is added and he stays on base while the next batter hits.

Game Parameters

  • For Insurance Purposes ALL players must be from the URSL; no exceptions!
  • Pitcher/hitter starts with a 2-2 count.  If you foul the ball you’re out.
  • Inning and Time Constraintswe will be on a very tight schedule so these rules are final
    • 5 innings is a COMPLETE game when the score is NOT tied (see exceptions below)
      • Since there is a time limit NOT all games will reach 5 completed innings.  If that is the case follow these rules:
        • If necessary…the HOME team gets their final at bat in the bottom of the inning (3-4-5) if the length of the game is within the 50 minute mark.
        • If the playing time has surpassed the 50 minute mark and the HOME team has not yet batted no matter what the inning the WINNER will be the team that led after the last completed inning; even if that’s the 1st inning.
  • Games are NOT to go past 55 minutes (see exceptions below)
    • In the PRELIMINARY ROUNDS if a game is TIED after 5innings then the winner is the team that was leading after the last completed/full (not half) inning.  However, if the time/clock has NOT exceeded the 45 minute mark then 1 extra inning will be played-very rare.  If still tied after that extra inning then the winner is the team that was leading after the last complete/full inning; even if that was the 1st inning.
    • The LOSER’S BRACKET CHAMPIONSHIP GAME & the FINAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME(S) will NOT follow the time restriction.  They are games 29, 30 & 31 listed on the bracket.  Otherwise,  5 innings is a complete game unless tied.  If tied then it gets played out until there is a clear cut winner.

2015 URSL Tourneys – Fields

One of my teammates has significant ties with the Mercer County parks and rec dept. He has been negotiating on our behalf to have access to 4 Fenced Fields 300′ within a 1-2 mile radius (Moody Park, Carlton Field and the 2 Antheil Elementary School fields).  The Antheil fields will be the main location hosting the tournament championships.

These are all within 5-10 minutes North of the Scudder Falls bridge (95N & 295S) going into Ewing Twp, NJ from PA. Several URSL players are familiar with these great fields.

They’re earmarked (the Zerby Derby) for Sunday, March 29th and (the inaugural Livengrin Ride for Recovery “RFR” tourney) Easter Saturday, April 4th.

These will be the normal 55 minute/double elimination tourneys.

The RFR tourney is hoping to be cash prize oriented; need to work out the final details with Livengrin, but probably 25% take home of the net profit. That could vary from $200-$1000 depending on tourney fees/expenses and of course how many teams enter… Entry fee to be $150-250; again, depending on how teams commit to enter…

The URSL regular season is earmarked to start the following Sunday, April 12th.  There will be 2 breaks in the schedule; Memorial Day and 4th of July weekends.
