Lineup - Each team will be supplied with a 2-Team Scorebook. A lineup must be presented to the opposing team at the beginning of each game. Each team MUST bat all players. However only (10) will take the field. 1 Female MUST play a defensive position on the field at all times.
No player may sit out from playing a defensive position more than 7 innings for every 14 innings played unless player should so choose to. Each team will need to monitor this as a whole. Please be respectful and fair to your teammates that also came to play.
If a player "No Call/No Shows" to a game, the team can elect to have that player immediately removed from the roster and no longer eligible to win any prizes, or participate in any future Unicorn Family Draft events.
If a player is "running late", and team agrees to add him/her to the lineup....every time that person comes to bat, and they're not there, that spot will be an out (EACH TIME). If the team starts the game without that person in the lineup, and he/she arrives BEFORE they have batted through the lineup, that player must be added to the end. If the player shows up AFTER they have batted through the lineup, that player is no longer eligible to play in that game, and cannot substitute for another player.

Co-Ed Rules- Females can play anywhere on the field. If a male is walked and a female is on deck, the male gets 2nd base (must run it out) and the female has the option to hit or take 1st base. Females CANNOT be thrown out at 1st base from an outfield position (or an assist from an OF position). All infielders must be in the dirt when the pitch is released.
Roster Additions- NO additions will be made to any roster unless tournament director adds them. In the event a player drops before the tournament, the tournament director will fill the empty roster spot with someone who is on the official waiting list. If a player drops during tournament, that team will play less 1 player.
Injury- In the event a player is injured during the game and cannot continue, that spot in the lineup will be an automatic out the 1st time that spot returns to an AB, then skipped each AB thereafter. If injured player cannot play the next game, the team must play with only 11. If 2 people are injured, the team must play with 10. If a team drops to less than 10, Tournament Director will assign a "House Sub" (some one who has not played on a team yet) if available.
