Disney’s Wide World of Sports complex

1. Each team manager is responsible for informing his players of all rules.

2. The tournament will be played by current International Softball Federation rules, identical to those used in 2008, except for special rules explained below.

3. A team representative is to meet at the tournament bracket board 30 minutes prior to scheduled game time to turn in their line-up (line-up cards are provided) coin flip and obtain game ball. A 5-minute grace period will be allowed after which the team present will be given choice of home or visitors. Teams involved in double-headers are expected to still send a representative 30 minutes prior.

4. The tournament ball will be the Worth K-Master C120WISC. Each team will be given 8 new balls at beginning of tournament to provide each team with 2-balls for each of their guaranteed 4-games. Teams are expected to retrieve foul balls. During a given game, if the umpires are out of balls, each team will put another C120WISC new or used ball into the game. If a team runs out of their 8-balls, they can purchase more balls at $5 each or $50 per dozen. This change is an attempt to create an incentive for teams to return foul balls and put those balls back into the game. In previous AAU tournaments, too many balls have ended up in player’s bags.

5. Teams may use the areas behind outfield fence to warm up but please do not go into straightaway center field. Batters eyes!!!! Diamonds not in use may be used for warm up on a shared basis with other teams.

6. Time limits: In pool (round robin) games no new inning will begin after 1:45. If a tie exists after the completed inning following 1:45, the game will be a tie.

7. In bracket play, there will be no time limit but there will be an 8 run after 5 innings and 12 after 3, mercy rule. If a game is tied after 7 innings, the 8th inning will begin with the last batter from prior inning running at second base.

8. Seeding procedure: At the conclusion of pool play, teams will be ranked 1-4 in each pool using the following process.

a. Pool play record.
b. Common game (head to head) if it’s a 2-team tie and is applicable.
c. Ties:
i. If above isn’t applicable, the ties will be broken in the following order using all pool games: fewest runs allowed, most runs scored, run differential and coin flip.
ii. If tied games create a situation where above isn’t practical, we will use 3 points for a win, 1for a tie and 0 for a loss to seed the teams.

Teams will be placed on single elimination bracket, based on their pool finish, i.e. A1 vs H4, B2 vs G3, etc.
9. Protests may be made only on rule interpretations. Protests will be resolved before play continues.

10. Disney reserves the right to discontinue play if inclement weather, impending inclement weather or any other unforeseen situation presents itself. Disney and AAU have the right to alter tournament format or rules if any of the above occurs.

11. Disney, AAU, Tournament Director and/or Tournament Umpire In Chief will resolve all protests, format changes, rule changes or any other issues addressed in # 9 and #10 or any situations not covered in ISF or tournament rules.

12. No profanity or bat throwing will be tolerated. Violators will be ejected.

13. Due to potential importance of runs scored, any pool play forfeits will be recorded with a final score of 3-0.

13. Phone number to Disney Softball press box is 407-939-1557. Tournament Director cell phone is 801-381-0961.


After pool play ends on Friday night, we will record the Saturday schedule on the Disney Press box phone. Call 407-939-1557 and listen for the Saturday schedule. This schedule information will not be recorded until 10 PM or later.

In a given game, if both teams pre-agree to play the game using the ISC pitching rule, the game will be played in that manner. Otherwise, ISF pitching rule is in effect. Disney will provide athletic trainers on site, for athlete injuries or medical needs.

Any individuals or teams found violating Disney or AAU rules will be subject to disqualification.

There will be free male only ISC pitching clinic conducted during the tournament. Specific times for each day will be announced at the manager meeting. Pitcher students must provide their own catcher. It is a walk up clinic so anyone can go anytime they want instruction or pitching assistance. Instructor is former Team USA pitcher, Bill Hillhouse houseofpitching@yahoo.com. These clinics are complimentary and a cooperative effort between AAU, Disney Sports and International Softball Congress (ISC).
