Score Reporting

You will send in scores after each game to Jan Schwanke email: jan.schwanke@gmail.com or you can text them after the games 507-227-7387 list each town, age and what there scores were of each game.

You can play in the rain, but if its lightning you need to wait 30 minutes from the last seen strike.

If a game gets postponed it needs to be made up, let me know of makeup dates so I can update on the website.

Remember games need to be called by 3pm if you are going to postpone because of weather/heat.

There should be no ties unless you played 1 inning of international rule and it was still tied after the next completed inning, if that happened then note it when submitting scores.

If a game gets cancelled let me know also, if a team forfeits a game let me know too.

If a game was made up from a previous date let me know original date of play.

Score Example: Day of play, list age, upper or lower, team names and scores of each team:
