Local Rules

Hillsborough Youth Athletic Association – HYAA: Local Rules

Each year, HYAA reviews all the Local Rules that are in place for league play to promote fairness, sportsmanship, more level playing time, and safety.  Where these rules do not apply HYAA will refer to the Cal Ripken Rules for 4-12 baseball and the Babe Ruth Rules for 8-12 softball.  Please review these as needed and before each season as things can change based on Rules Committee suggestions to the HYAA Board.
