2.                  Each batter starts with a 1-and-1 count. They are allowed 1 foul ball after reaching 2 strikes. A second foul ball is an out.

3.                  Each game begins with 1 new ball. Foul balls and retrievable home runs should be picked up by the teams and returned to the umpire.

4.                  There is a 2 home run rule for each game. Each team is allowed 2 home runs (over the fence) per game.

5.                  8 run max per team in a single inning, except the last inning.

6.                  There is a 15-run rule after 4 ½ innings.  The game is ended at that point.
