We look forward to hosting your teams and families in Deerfield over Father's Day week.

SCORE REPORTING FOR ALL TEAMS

Following each game, it is the RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WINNING TEAM  to report both the score of the game as well as pitching records.  We appreciate a timely report for all scores so we can keep the standings updated quickly throughout the tournament.
 
The score reporting format is as follows:
 
  • WINNING team will send email to wbtscores@dyba.com.   
  • Please put the AGE/DIVISION (including a or b for 10u and 14u) in the subject line.
  • Player's Jersey # and innings pitched for BOTH teams during pool play, and ONLY for the winning team during elimination play (we will ALSO accept a gamechanger link to the box score for PITCHING records only).
Please see the WBT rules for pitching limits per day and tournament.  (should weather dictate a triple header for any team, per day pitching limits may potentially be altered).
 

RULES POSTED 6-8-18

Please see this year's tournament rules in the document below.  If there are any questions or issues, please bring them to the attention of the tournament director before the tournament begins.  Once the tournament begins, all rules in the attached will be in effect.

 

6/13/18 - Two rule clarifications

1. Rule 4D states "No head first slides".  Clarification - this only applies when advancing to a base.  This rule does not apply when sliding back to a base (e.g. to avoid a pickoff attempt).

2. Rule 4F states that pool play games are 6 innings or 1 hour 45 minutes, whichever happens first.  Innings started within the time limit are to be finished.  Clarification - if the games is tied after 6 innings and you are still under 1 hour and 45 minutes, the game will play extra innings until there is a winner or the time limit is reached (any inning started is to be completed).

A MESSAGE FROM THE DEERFIELD POLICE DEPARTMENT

The Deerfield Police Department would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Wooden Bat Tournament.  They do have a few suggestions and requests:
