GCKA will NOT be serving food or drinks at Murfin on Saturday
or Sunday - in result they are charging $5 to park at Murfin on those 2 days and you can bring in coolers of food and
beverage as you wish - please remove your trash .
The softball has been changed this year to a Baden Classic M ball and a Classic W - hitting rules are
the same and there is NOT unlimited softballs for each game . Tournament director will provide one new and 2 used per
game ( providing teams hand over balls at completion of game ) If your team hits fould balls or HR then please retrieve
them. Backup balls could be anything left over from prior tournaments. Games will also be put on time limits.
Bat Testing: commissioner can
test any bat at anytime - if a player is found to have an illegal bat they will be removed from that game and the following
2 games after ( even if that is games in next years tournament ) If a batter hits a pitcher that bat can be checked
and tested as soon as possible ( the game will NOT be stopped and the bat will NOT be removed until it is tested ) If a player
has 2 test that fail they will be banned from the tournament for the remaining games that year plus 2 years following.
The Commissioner reserves the right to change , alter, cancel
any rule at anytime if he feels its best for the tournament as a whole or a team/player is not gaining an advantage .
COMBINING CLASS: It is the intent of the Alumni tournament to play with a single
class team whenever possible.
Mens A will not have the option to combine classes until the youngest team is 20 years graduated
from high school. If a 40 year old and over team wants to play in A they can have a roster of anyone 40 yrs old
Womens division may
not combine with another class until the youngest team is 15 years graduated from high school. Women can enter
a 35 year and older team .
Mens B same as Mens A
Mens 35+ Mens 45+ only as needed and must submit request to
commissioner for ruling.
*** If/when 2 classes combine
they must combine with a class 1 year older or 1 year younger. If those classes choose to play as a single class team
then they can skip that year and go to the next. ( example = if 1934 class wants to combine it must be with 1933 or
1935. If 1935 is playing as a single class then 1936 becomes the next option - if years are not playing then the
next closest year will be the option . The team combining can choose which class they want to play with )
class must have an A team, 35+, 45+ team in order to have a B team
Pinch runners: Mens A, B,
Womens = sanctioned tournament rules apply , check with umpire.
= unlimited with players not in the active lineup and then sanction rules apply - and if both teams agree on pinch runner
rules prior to start of game they can be altered based on both teams agreement.
