PITCHER PROTECTION RULE:
For the pitcher to qualify for the following protection he must remain in contact with the pitching box or be retreating directly backward toward second from his original pitching position.
Any sharply batted ball that hits the pitchers body with or without being deflected by his glove will result in the batter being called out immediately, and if any bases are occupied the runner closest to the plate will also be called out.
In addition that spot in the order will become an offensive ejection for the remainder of the game. Any player being ejected for a second time during the summer for hitting a pitcher during the season will serve a two game suspension. A third ejection will result in a one year suspension from all leagues.
All players being ejected will be turned into the Park Director who will closely monitor all ejections and he will make sure the penalties are enforced equally and fully. A list of players in violation of this rule will be posted at the ball park, and the list will be kept up to date.
