NEW RULE: Cal Ripken Division – Fake Bunt – Slash Bunt – A batter is out for illegal action when the player fakes a bunt and then takes a full swing, thus eliminating a player from fake bunting (slap-hitting) the ball. Penalty: Batter is out, the ball is dead, no runners may advance.
As this rule does take into account the safety and well-being of our players, we are implementing this regulation for the 2015 season.
