The 2012 American Legion Baseball Rule Book is currently in the process of being sent to all state department baseball chairman to distribute to coaches. Coaches must contact their department to obtain a copy of the rule book. The rule book is also available for download by clicking here.
All changes in the 2012 rule book are highlighted in red for the senior teams and green for the junior teams. Included in the updated rule book is Resolution 45, which passed last fall by the National Americanism Commission. The resolution states that departments who do not adhere to Legion Baseball rules may be subject to suspension and possible removal from the program if violations are not corrected within a timely manner.
