LEAGUE RULES & REGULATIONS

Instagram Post – 1
  • If an association would like to enter a second 18U AAA team the maximum imports allowed is seven total between the two teams, with a maximum of four of those seven allowed on the second team.

 

  • If a player’s home association does not provide AAA or AA that player still requires a transfer but will not be counted as an import.

 

  • If a player has been registered with an association in the 2021 Baseball Alberta season and either of the 2019 or 2020 Baseball Alberta season(s) at the AA or AAA level, that now becomes the home association for that player and would no longer be considered an import. That player will always have the option to return to play in their closest Baseball Alberta Association if they so choose.

 

  • If you do not make either of your home association’s 18U AAA teams you are not eligible to play AAA in that season. Associations may carry a maximum of 4 – 19 year non collegiate players in any one 18U category A, AA, & AAA.

 

  • For 18U AAA the maximum roster size is now 18 players.

Where aluminum bats are permitted, only approved “BBCOR” stamped aluminum bats in the 15U and above categories will be permitted for use.

  • USSSA 1.15 and USABB bats will be both approved for play under Baseball Canada rules for the 11U and under categories. This allows for all previous & current 2 1/4”, 2 5/8” and 2 3/4” USSSA 1.15 certified bats to be used.

 

  • All Post Provincial Championships (Western Canada Championships and Baseball Canada National Championships) for categories 15U ‘AAA’ and above are wood or wood composite bat only Championships.

 

  • The 17U Canada Cup Championship is a wood bat only championship.

 

  • 15U and 18U Girls are eligible to use up to a -5 bat with a barrel no more then 2 3/4” diameter. Girls using bats that are NOT -3 must have them clearly marked (colored tape around handle). Umpires must be notified of this bat prior to the game.

‘AAA’ Division

The objective of the Provincial ‘AAA’ League is to provide a highly competitive yet developmental level of play for players/teams at the 13U, 15U and 18U age categories in a Province-wide format. Provincial ‘AAA’ Leagues will operate on a Province-wide basis for the entire season.

‘AA’ Division

The objective of the Provincial ‘AA’ League is to provide a competitive and developmental level of play for players/teams at the 11U, 13U, 15U and 18U age categories in a Province-wide format. Provincial ‘AA’ Leagues will operate on a 3-round seeding basis, with teams playing in a Regional format in May, a North/South Divisional format in June and a Provincial Tier format in July.

‘A’ Division

The objective of the Provincial ‘A’ Baseball League is to provide a longer developmental season of baseball for community level teams and players, allowing them to continue to play baseball through the month of July with an ‘A’ Provincial Championship at 11U, 13U, 15U and 18U age categories (based on registration).

Teams will be separated into regional areas (based on number and location of teams) for play in early July with every team qualifying for the Provincial Championships in an appropriate Tier based on results during the first two weekends of play. If there are too few teams registered to host the ‘A’ division of play, the teams entered will be given the opportunity/choice to compete in the lowest ‘AA’ Tier for play in July and will have an opportunity to qualify for that Tier’s Provincial ‘AA’ Championship

A player who lives outside the boundaries/city limits of the team he/she is wishing to play for must first register with the closest Baseball Alberta Association within their zone (Home Association) and pay the Baseball Alberta Player Registration fee (Competitive fee for ‘AAA’/’AA’ or Community fee for ‘A’) through the Home Association. The Home Association may charge that player up to $25 for administrative costs.

If a player has been registered with an association in the 2021 Baseball Alberta season and either of the 2019 or 2020 Baseball Alberta season(s) at the AA or AAA level, that now becomes the home association for that player and would no longer be considered an import. That player will always have the option to return to play in their closest Baseball Alberta Association if they so choose.

The player may then apply to transfer through the Transfer Request Application. The transfer request must be signed by both the President of the outgoing Association and the President of the receiving Association to indicate their approval or denial of such transfer.

The transfer form, required letter and $25 fee must be delivered to Baseball Alberta (no forms without payment will be accepted) no later than Noon on the Initial/Final Roster submission date. Only players who have been approved transfer will be allowed onto an approved team roster. Any transfer request that occurs after May 31st will result in the transfer fee increasing to $100.

Player transfer requests are handled as follows:

  • If the incoming President denies (or refuses to sign) the Transfer Request, the player has no appeal and will not be granted transfer.
  • Any transfer that is signed by both the outgoing and receiving President and delivered with required letter and $25 processing fee will be deemed approved Baseball Alberta.
  • If the outgoing President denies (or refuses to sign) the Transfer Request, the player may still submit the transfer request with the required letter and $25 processing fee. This will be considered an appeal and will be decided by the Registrar. If a player wishes to appeal past the Baseball Alberta Registrar, the Executive of Baseball Alberta will have final ruling on the matter.

There will be an additional charge of $100.00 to any player wishing to appeal beyond the transfer decision made by the Baseball Alberta Registrar. Appeals will be brought forward to the Executive Committee upon receipt of payment. If the player is transferring to a higher division of play (i.e. from ‘A’ to ‘AA’), the appeal will be approved in order to give the player a higher level opportunity for development.

Baseball Alberta will not support lateral transfers (‘AA’ to ‘AA’) without support of the outgoing Association President unless transferring from a part-time program to a full-time program or unless a ‘AA’ team has not been formed/guaranteed at that point or unless the player is transferring from an Association that has permitted players to transfer in or unless extreme circumstances can be proven. Regarding lateral transfers, Baseball Alberta will support lateral transfer requests where the outgoing Association has permitted players to transfer in, based on an assessment of their total number of registered players at the age category to ensure that they can maintain their program. The intent of this rule is to support the development of both strong ‘AA’ and ‘AAA’ programs in areas when player transfers to ‘AAA’ programs are occurring.

Player Transfers are not required for female players who want to play on an all-female team at their age category in another Member Association if an all-female team is not available in their Home Association.

Association Transfers:

  • Two or more Associations can apply to Baseball Alberta to form a team from their respective associations, subject to approval of Baseball Alberta. These associations must be able to demonstrate, through the application process, that there is a necessity to work together to form a team at an age category.
  • These associations must fill out the Association Transfer Application and have signatures from all Presidents involved (the transfer fee of $25.00 does not apply)
  • Deadlines for Association Transfer Application will be the same as the above deadlines for individual player transfers.

Residence Criteria:

In some cases, players who are registering with a different Association this season than they registered with last season because of a change of residence may be requested to provide additional information to support the change of address or be required to submit a player transfer.

  1. Player residency will be defined as the residence of the player’s parents or legal guardians. Acceptable proof of a players residence will be a certified true photocopy of government issued identification (such as a driver’s license or passport) of the player’s parent(s) or legal guardian.  Players who are subject to the joint custody of parents who are not cohabitating may use the address of either parent for the purposes of player registration.  For extra clarity, billet addresses will no longer be accepted as residency for Baseball Alberta registration.
  2. Players will not be required to submit proof of residency at the time of registration with Baseball Alberta. Any player playing in Baseball Alberta’s leagues may be required to submit proof of residency directly to Baseball Alberta upon request of the Registrar.  The Registrar may make this request of players selected at random from League rosters or in situations where questions have been raised regarding the residence of a player.
  3. If a registered player in 11U, 13U, 15U, or 18U category has changed his permanent place of residence to another location within the province, he may register with a team at his new place of residence at any time during the season with the consent of the Baseball Alberta Executive Director.
  4. A player who has registered with another baseball organization, or comes from an area where no organized baseball was available, and who changes his permanent place of residence, after Baseball Alberta registration deadlines have passed, may be granted registration with Baseball Alberta teams upon written request to the Baseball Alberta Executive Director.

Transfer Examples:

The following examples are intended to help players, parents, and Associations understand the player transfer process and its outcomes.  Please note that these are only examples and each transfer case is evaluated on its own specific circumstances.

'AA' to 'AA' Transfer:

George Brett registers to play baseball in the 13U category with Mudville Minor Baseball, his Home Association.  Mudville has historically fielded a 13U AA team.  Mudville Minor Baseball assesses its registrations for the season and determines that they only have eight (8) registered players at the 13U category. George tries out for and is offered a spot on the 13U AA team in nearby Yomiuri.  In order to play for Yomiuri Minor Baseball, he needs to get a player transfer from Mudville. George plays for Yomiuri for the 2016 season.  In 2017, George is required to register as a player with Mudville Minor Baseball.  Mudville now has enough players to field a 13U team.  George plays for Mudville for the 2017 season.

'AA' to 'AAA' Transfer:

Ted Williams played AAA baseball in the 15U category for Springfield Minor Baseball, his Home Association.  As a first year 18U player, Springfield evaluates him and does not offer him a spot on their 18U AAA roster for the 2016 season.  Ted tries out and is offered a spot on the Shelbyville Minor Baseball 18U AAA team for the 2016 season.  In order to play for Shelbyville's 18U AAA team, Ted needs to get a player transfer from Springfield.  Baseball Alberta will support this transfer without the support of Springfield based on the opportunity for Ted to access a higher level of play.

GAME EJECTIONS & INCIDENT REPORTS:

Each game ejection (players, coaches and fans) will be tracked through Game Summary Reports filled out by the Official Scorekeeper and followed up through Incident Reports provided by the umpire. All reports will be sent to Baseball Alberta and will be filed and tracked for the entire season. While most individual ejections will not result in more disciplinary action, some incidents or groups of incidents may result in further action. Baseball Alberta Disciplinary Guidelines are available on the Baseball Alberta website. Team discipline is the responsibility of the individual teams and their coaches and managers, who shall be held responsible for the maintenance of discipline and proper team or individual conduct. Any breach of discipline, whether on the playing field or off, shall be dealt with by Baseball Alberta through our reporting process. Baseball Alberta will use Baseball Canada rule 1.4.4 as a guide to assist with following up on such incidents.

General Rules

Any player on the team is eligible to pitch, and there are no restrictions to the number of pitchers a manager may use in a game.

Pitchers shall be permitted to have 2 appearances in the same calendar day. If a pitcher requires a rest following 1st appearance, they cannot return in the same calendar day (see examples below).

Pitcher cannot pitch 3 consecutive days unless a pitcher’s first 2 days combined does not exceed: 

  •  11U – 20 league/25 provincials
  • 13U – 25 league/30 provincials
  • 15U Boys/Girls – 30 league/35 provincials
  • 18U – 30 league/40 provincials
  • If a pitcher’s Day 1 + Day 2 exceed the figure above for their division, they require rest as defined in the pitch count chart. Pitcher’s cannot pitch 4 consecutive days.

A pitcher who has pitched on 2 consecutive days and whose total exceeds the low category maximum allowance will not be able to pitch again on the second day.

The following Baseball Canada Nationals rule WILL NOT be applied to ANY Baseball Alberta games:

  • When a pitcher reaches the maximum number of pitches allowed for a threshold, he/she can complete the earlier of the (i) the end of the at-bat or (ii) the end of the inning, without penalty on days of rest, as long as he/she does not pitch to another batter.

The official scorekeeper will calculate the total pitches thrown for that calendar day and determine the required rest starting the next calendar day. Athletes must not exceed the maximum pitch count total for that day.

Once a player assumes the position of pitcher, they cannot catch for the remainder of the game.

If a player pitches in the first game of the day and is eligible to pitch again in the same day, he may pitch or catch in the second game, but not both.

Pitchers will be permitted to finish the batter if the maximum pitch limit has been reached.

Required Rest shall be defined in “Days” starting at 12:01am and ending at 11:59pm of the next calendar day.

If a game continues past 12:01am, those pitches are counted as if the pitched prior to midnight. If a game is suspended, when it resumes it is defined as a different day.

A pitcher who is removed from the mound during a game shall not be permitted to return to pitch in the same game, even if the pitcher is retained in the game at another position.

 

BASEBALL ALBERTA SPECIFIC RULES:

 

The scorekeeper will inform the umpire of the pitch count when a count is nearing the end of a pitcher’s daily limits. The umpire will then notify the team manager or coach of the pitcher’s team so that an opportunity for assignment correction may be immediately affected.

The Official League Regular Season final weekend will be defined as the weekend prior to the scheduled Provincial Championship at each competition level.

No Breaking Balls shall be permitted at the 11U age category – if a coach feels that the opposing team’s pitchers are throwing breaking balls the umpire will be notified and if deemed necessary a note will be placed in the game report. The Baseball Alberta office will investigate and follow the same procedure used for pitch count violations.

  • A Breaking Ball shall be defined as any pitch where the hand is pronated, supinated, turned or snapped in a fashion where the baseball rotates in a side to side, forward spinning or with unnatural action that is not consistent with the pitchers natural fastball rotation.
  • In the umpire’s judgement, if a pitcher at the 11U age category throws a breaking ball, such pitch will be deemed illegal and will be called a “ball”. If as a result of the pitch, the batter reaches first base as a result of the play (such as hit or walk) and all other runners advance at least one base, the play will stand without reference to the illegal pitch. No outs may be recorded as a result of such illegal pitch.
  • The umpire will warn the Manager that the pitch is illegal and permit the Manager to advise his pitcher accordingly. No visit to the mound will be charged to the team. This warning must be given regardless of whether or not there was a play that occured after the pitch. If, after the warning, the pitcher delivers another breaking ball, the Manager will be ejected. If the pitcher, or any subsequent pitcher, delivers another breaking ball, such pitcher will be ejected.

Change-Ups and off speed pitches where the baseball rotates in a similar fashion to a fastball will be permitted at all levels and should be observed by the umpire prior to an appearance during warm-up.

Pitcher Warm-Up Rule can be utilized by all divisions (only during limited substitution) – A position player that is scheduled to pitch may exit the game to warm-up and re-enter with the intent of throwing the first pitch of the next defensive inning. The substitute player will not lose eligibility unless the pitcher does not begin the inning following the warm-up period and will then be considered active. The pitcher would then lose playing eligibility in the game. The substitute player must not have previously been in the game.

Violation Policies

Head Coaches or Team Managers will be responsible for adhering to the Pitch Count policy. If an infraction occurs, then the following will occur as a result of non-compliance. The policies will be inclusive of one calendar season.

  • 1st Infraction – A written warning will be issued to Head Coach or Team Manager
  • 2nd Infraction – A 1 game suspension will be issued to the Head Coach or Team Manager
  • 3rd Infraction – A 3 game suspension will be issued to the Head Coach or Team Manager
  • 4th Infraction – A minimum 5 game suspension and “Prohibited Indefinitely Status” will be issued to the Head Coach or Team Manager

The violation of any pitching rules may result in forfeiture of game in which the violation occurred. When the use of a pitcher who is ineligible or about to become ineligible is evident, scorekeepers or other officials MUST notify the team manager or coach of the offending team so that an opportunity for assignment correction may be immediately affected.

Baseball Alberta will have the option to increase suspension time based on the violation and the coach must be reinstated with written approval from Baseball Alberta. A subsequent fine may also be incurred along with follow up re-certification.

Pitch Count Hearing Policy – At any point in the process a suspended or fined manager or coach may request a hearing involving Baseball Alberta; a $100.00 cost will be incurred

Appeal Policy – At any point in the process a suspended or fined manager or coach may appeal a decision. A $200.00 cost will be incurred if the decision is upheld.

PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIP PITCH COUNT VIOLATION PROCEDURE:

Scorekeepers and coaches must identify any potential infraction before that infraction occurs. No protest will be heard after the fact. Any infraction that is identified after it occurs will result in the removal of the player from the pitching position and no protest or forfeiture will occur. Posting/Updating of Pitch Count totals (Poster Boards) should be displayed at all diamonds being used during Provincial Championship tournament.

PROTESTS:

A decision based on an umpire’s judgment shall offer no basis for protest. The Home and Visiting Team must each assign two Protest Committee members to decide on protests in Provincial League games. In order for a protest to be lodged, the protesting team must notify the umpire of the request to protest the decision/call before the next pitch, play, or attempted play. If the umpire agrees the protest is legal, the protesting team must provide $100 in cash to the Official Scorekeeper to officially launch the protest. The Protest Committee (4 members) will then be summoned and will hear the protest. The Committee will remove themselves from the area of play to discuss the protest and make a decision (through a majority vote) utilizing the rules of play for Baseball Canada/Baseball Alberta.

If the Committee cannot reach a majority vote on the protest, the Official Scorekeeper will then put all 4 names and their vote on separate pieces of paper and place in a hat, drawing out 3 names. The majority of the votes will then be decided by those 3 names drawn and will be accepted as the Protest Committee decision. If the protest is upheld (protesting team wins the protest), the protesting team will be given their $100 cash back and the game will resume from the point of stoppage with the new decision taking effect. If the protest is not upheld (protesting team loses the protest), the $100 will be sent into Baseball Alberta with a copy of the protest report and the game will resume from the point of the stoppage. The Protest Committee must then ensure that the Protest Report is completed and left with the Official Scorekeeper (to be sent in by the Hosting Coordinator with the Game Summary Report to Baseball Alberta). Protest Committee members should be objective individuals with good knowledge of the game of baseball.

PROTEST - PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIPS:

  • The host site shall appoint at least two members to the Protest Committee. The Tournament Director and two members shall deal with all protests and disputes arising in a playoff and their ruling shall be final and binding.
  • The Umpire and the Tournament Director in attendance shall be notified, at the time of alleged infraction, that a protest is being lodged.
  • A decision based on an umpire’s judgment shall offer no basis for protest.
  • In reaching its decision on any legitimate protest, the Protest Committee shall meet immediately with the game umpires and the team managers involved in the dispute, with the game remaining in a state of suspension until a decision is made.
  • No protest shall be considered by this committee unless the prescribed fee of $100 has been paid in cash. This fee shall be returned if the protest is upheld.
  • Any member of the Board of Directors involved in a protest shall be disqualified from voting on the protest.
