Pickup player Rules for each division
The reality is that they are needed for any major event like this. You must get pre-approval for any pick-up player before Wednesday at 2pm the week of the event by emailing us at Youthfastpitch@gmail.com. Teams may have up to 3 pickup players of the same class or lower just like on any weekend during the year. “A” teams can draw from A,B or C teams the same age or lower. “B” teams may draw from B or C teams the same age or lower. “C” teams can only draw from other “C” teams the same age or lower. We don’t like pitchers as pickup players but they are allowed but must be pre-approved first and they may be denied. FOR SUMMER NATIONALS ONLY as we have since the beginning of our program(and this is for position players only(not for pitchers), each team can use one age eligible player(not pitchers) from the same class (A to A, B to B, C to C) that played up this year that is not a pitcher(i.e. a 14c player that is 12c age eligible can play on a 12C team),( a 16A age eligible player that has played 18A all year can drop down in 16A for this even), a 14B age eligible player that has played 16B all year can drop down in 14B for this event. You CANNOT go from 18A to 16b, or from 16A to 14B, or from 14A to 12B, or from 12A to 10B. “C” teams CANNOT use pickup players from “B” teams. Every player must be pre-approved by us first and we reserve the right to DENY them for any reason. We will decide on any situations that are gray areas or don’t fall within these guidelines or are special circumstances that are reasonable such as 10U playing 12c and 12b playing 14c exceptions. 17U can use any level player that was 17U on jan 1.
