  • 9th batters rule

    Just wondering does other country also like mine, that introduced 9th batters' rule?

    9th batters' rule
    For every half inning, the max. players that can at-bat is 9, when the 9th batter at-bat, if he receive a "walk/HBP/catcher interference", all runners on base will advance 2 bases.

    This rule will apply on some amateur leagues (lower level grade I mean), anyone one ever heard that?
    If u country also use that rule, which "grade" will this rule apply?

    Thanks in advance.

    My team uses a variation at our annual softball tournament. The 10th batter of the inning can only advance the runners, then the inning is over. If he gets a BB/HBP he gets a free hit tossed by a member of his team.

    I haven't seen the rule in any level of league play however.

      I'll be quite honest, I've never ever heard of this rule being applied at any level of baseball

        Our League uses a 10 batter rule in the 8 and 9 yr olds if you reach the 10th batter in an inning before 3 outs are made the innning ends after the 10th batter
