Eich’s Sports Complex Hitting League is a competitive hitting league designed for fast paced excitement. The league consists of simulated games with 3-4 players per team who compete in a pool play league format with the end of league tournament to decide the champion. Games consist of players hitting baseballs or softballs pitched in a front toss manner by one of the umpires behind a net 20' from home plate. The games are scored based on where the ball is hit within our cages divided into single, double, triple, and home run areas as well as areas for outs and double plays. Ghost Runners are used for players on base. After a team gets 3 outs, the other team will take their turn. With most at bats lasting only one pitch, every team will play two best of 3 series each day.

Hitting League Rules
Team Rosters will be made up of 3-4 players. No player can play on two different teams within the same Age Group/Division.
Teams will hit with a batting lineup of 2-4 players. Games can be played with as few as 2 players in the lineup. Fewer than 2 players will result in an automatic out each inning. (Substitutes may be used but may not be on another team’s roster in that division.)
Games: Games will be 5 inning games. If the score is tied after 5 innings a 6th inning will be played and if still tied will go to a Tiebreaker (see below). 28 minute time limit to complete the 3 games. If the score is tied at the end of the time limit a Tiebreaker will be used. Games are pitched/umpired by Eich’s Sports Complex staff. All umpire calls are final!!!
First 4 weeks will be pool play with the 5th week the end of season tournament with brackets determined by the results of pool play.
Teams should report 10 minutes before their scheduled start time. Two 3-game series will be played each scheduled date. Both teams will be the home team one game with coin flip for game 3. Teams will then rotate for the second 3-game series of the night.
Tie Breaker- Each player (4 total at bats) will hit once. The tie breaker is determined by the number of hits per team. If each team gets the same amount of hits, we will go to sudden death. In sudden death, each team chooses one player to get one at bat. If each player gets a hit, teams can choose a different player or they can keep the same player hitting for the second round. This will continue until one player gets a hit while the other teams player gets an out.
