We are changing our policy that only paid teams or teams paying a deposit will be guaranteed a spot. Some tournaments sell out and teams get turned away only to have teams drop out last minute. You can continue to pencil in but a minimum $100 deposit will be required to hold your spot if your age bracket fills up. You may be bumped without notice if you do not have a deposit made.
Game Changer will not be considered a book. Too many mistakes are made and difficult to figure out. The official score will be the umpire card. It will be the responsibility of both coaches and the umpire to make sure the scorecard is correct every inning and after the game. Once the card is turned into SU officials the score will be the official score. A single run can make a difference for your team or someone else. Make sure we are getting scores right!
If a field can not be fit for our dimensions we reserve the right to change dimension rules for that field or tournament. This will effect mostly 8u-10u. Every effort will be made to have fields exact but as we struggle to get fields most little league fields do not always go to 65'. The fields may be played at 60' vs. 65'.
Coaches - Reminder you are responsible for your parents and fans conduct. We have a zero tolerance for abusive behavior. Umpires are to be respected. If there is a issue let us handle it. We are strained every tournament as is every organization to get umpires. Do your part - honor the game - be a example to your players.
No alcohol at any of the parks! Your team may asked to forfeit and leave if we are approached again by cities with this problem. Clean up your trash - with everything that has happened we should be even more appreciative of the use of city parks.
Umpires usually change out from plate to field every 2-3 games. We schedule tight to keep things moving with run rules etc... be patient if umpires are a little late getting back. Be prepared to play early or late. We will do our best to stay on time. Remember they need to eat and have a break also.
We will continue to play 1 hour 40 minutes. Once your game is over please vacate the fields promptly.
Make sure scores are correct on game card before leaving fields!
Coaches - you are responsible for not bringing a player with known COVID Exposure. Do not ruin this for everyone else. Players need to be screened by you before play. Be responsible!! If it comes to our attention you have done this your entire team will be removed immediately - no refund.

**Championships for 2020 Season will now have 2 hour time limit - no new inning after 2 hours. **
Championships played on fields with curfews will have time limits if lights curfew may come into play. If lights go off - the last completed inning will be the final. 11pm is the curfew we deal with the most.
There is also a no seeds or shelled nuts allowed at all Santa Clara and Ivins Parks. Please clean up your trash at all parks and do your part to keep facilities clean. Fields are becoming harder to get and we need to make sure we are good guests. Please talk to players about digging holes in outfield grass - this has became a major complaint by grounds crews.
**All bats must be USSSA 1.15 Stamped**
We have banned same Demari Bats as USSSA. We will continue to follow USSSA bans. Please refer to their site for more information.
**New grade /age rule USSSA has implemented is under review by SU Baseball**
As of now we will only allow this by special request.. We have found very few kids that are April birthdays or earlier that have been held back. We can see both the reasons for the rule and the issues it may cause. We do not want to see the rule used for the wrong reasons. We do see good reasons to let a child play with the kids he will play in HS with and attends school with. Please remember that we are here to provide a avenue for our youth to play quality baseball. We put a lot of effort into trying to always improve our events and do what is best for the kids.
SU Baseball was started in 2010 with one simple goal in mind...provide a positive quality baseball experience with quality umpires on quality fields because the players deserve it.
Having certified umpires and quality baseball fields ensures a positive experience for the players and fans alike. We will always put the players first and the bottom line second, so you experience a quality tournament the way baseball was meant to be played!
SU Baseball and it's host parks have a ZERO tolerance policy regarding manager, coach, and parent behavior. Everyone is expected to conduct themselves with the highest degree of sportsmanship. Any extended verbal abuse, physical abuse or threat of physical abuse of an umpire or tournament official will result in ejection from the park for the day and possible suspension for the duration and remainder of any SU Baseball event. Managers must have control of their coaches, players, fans and themselves at all times.
Teams that play music before games and between innings - please be respectful of others. Keep volumes reasonable and music appropriate for age and attendance.
