How do your areas establish the rules / by laws for your leagues (I'm specifically intersted in tball)?
For instance, our league says they play by "Utrip" rules, but anytime we go to another field / area to play we hear different rules that aren't listed in the USSSA rules (below).
Do some areas / cities create their own rules? Are SEAA rules much different, and maybe they are playing by this?
For instance, USSSA rules only mention bats cannot be over 2 3/4". However, two fields we played at questioned a few of our "Big Barrel", saying they cannot be used in tball. One said, you can't use anything over 2 1/4". I am unable to find this rule in USSSA, and cannot find SEAA rules at all. Any help, thoughts, ideas would be appreciated.
