 EH: EXTRA HITTER

 

EH is not to be confused with a DH (designated hitter).  EH only bats, a DH bats for a player who plays a position in the field.

 

EH- An EH can be inserted into the lineup (batting order) 1 through 10 in Little League, or 1 through 11 in minor league.

 

If a team is going to utilize the EH during that game, the team must insert the EH in a designated spot in the lineup prior to the game.  You must inform the other team preferably during the line-up exchange or at the latest before the first pitch of the game.

For Example:  You have 9 players (LL); 10 (ML) at the start of a game, but you know another player will be coming at approximately the second inning and  (you) the coach would like to utilize the EH throughout the game, you must place the EH in the line-up prior to the game.  If the extra player is not available when the EH position is due to bat an out will be recorded for that team.  Another player already in the line- up cannot bat in the EH position.

 

An individual player cannot be designated the EH for more than 50% of the teams played innings for the entire year.  Our goal is to develop a complete baseball player not one-dimensional.

 

The goal is to allow as many players as possible to participate during the course of a game.

 

  

Have a Great 2006
