Major Rule Changes for 2020 Season
UpdatedTuesday December 31, 2019 byBret Lavey.
We're continuing to discuss proposed changes to our Major League Division. For the upcoming season, we're implementing:
- Must Play Rule. Each player must have at least one plate appearance or half inning of defense in each complete game.
- 16 Game Schedule. Each Major team will play 16 games, including some 3-game weeks. The tournament remains unchanged with the season-ending Championship Game planned for Fun Day, May 30th, 2020.
- Junior Major. Plans are in the works to make our Junior Major Division more competitive. More details coming soon.
- Sunday Showcase(s). On select Sunday(s) in April and May, Major Managers plan to host optional practices/skill competitions to provide more opportunities to evaluate players prior to All-Star voting. Other divisions (Minor, Rookie, and T-Ball) may also adopt this practice based on coaches' feeback.
As always, the Board always welcomes your feedback! #SLpride
