BYB BASEBALL RULES
Bixby Youth Baseball is a USSSA park and we play by USSSA rules unless otherwise stated in our BYB or interleague rules. Any rules not listed specifically by the USSSA rules are then governed by the Official MLB Rules of Baseball-National League. See Foreword from USSSA baseball:
Playing rules not specifically covered herein, shall be governed by The Official MLB Rules of Baseball – National League. If any conflict in rules between these Official USSSA Baseball National By-laws & Rules and The Official MLB Rules of Baseball – National League, these Official USSSA Baseball National By-laws & Rules shall govern. In the event of any conflict in language between any printed version of these Official USSSA Baseball National By-laws & Rules and the usssabaseball.org online version, the usssabaseball.org online version shall govern.” – USSSA Baseball Official Baseball National By-Laws and Rules Jan 1, 2016
Likewise if there is any conflict between the MLB or USSSA rules and BYB/interleague rules then our park/interleague rules shall govern.
So a coach should be familiar with the BYB rules (T-Ball and 5U&6U), the interleague rules (7U – 14U), the USSSA rules and the MLB rules. Please see the links to each of these sets of rules. If you have any questions about a specific rule please send us an e-mail @ firstname.lastname@example.org
