OYO Fall Ball Rules, Time Limit RemindersUpdated Monday August 21, 2017 by OYO.
OYO follows the NFHS Rules for baseball and softball. However, as with any program, there are some customized exceptions, too. Parents, players and coaches can access OYO's "house rules" for baseball and softball online via OYO's website.
During Fall Ball, all divisions will play a 1 hour, 45 minute game with a hard-stop rule in effect during the entire regular season. (During the tournament only, we finish the inning after the same time limit is reached.) The game clock begins immediately following the national anthem and is managed by OYO's Advisors on Duty (AODs). When the time limit is reached, an announcement is made to suspend play immediately at which time players/teams will line-up for the customary post-game handshake before clearing dugouts and preparing for the next round of games.
