American Legion Baseball 2018 rule book now available

The redesigned 2018 American Legion Baseball rule book is now available online.

The rule book can be downloaded here.

Teams can register for the 2018 season at www.baseball.legion.org now and, as of Feb. 1, can now pay fees for the season.

This year’s rulebook has been redesigned to separate the junior and senior program rules entirely, creating two separate sections to eliminate confusion and to improve readability.

Last fall, rule changes were passed and have been implemented in the rule book.

In addition, there have been a number of clarifications of rules after a page-by-page review of policies.

Print copies of the rule book are expected in late February.

For any questions involving rules or the rule book, please contact your department baseball chairman. For a list of contacts, click here.
