games balls (2 for each game)
4. Be prepared to transition
quickly. Have your first pitcher ready to go before you start the
game. This goes for position players as well. There are plenty of
places to throw before you walk onto the field. Lineups can be exchanged
before you walk onto the field.
5. Have players leave the
majority of their personal gear in a spot that your team chooses to use as a

correct number of players, there will be plenty to borrow from. You may
not borrow pitchers or catchers from other teams per league rules

a minimum, there will be families at this event.
