SPN Changes for 2015

Updated January 31, 2015
This is not an official Slo-Pitch National web page. Official Slo-Pitch National web site

SPN Coed Rules 6M-4F: Rule 13, Sec. 1-2 (page 55)
Redefined coed batting order: 6M-4F is considered "normal" line up.
A. A female may be substituted for a male and a male may be legally substituted or re-entered into that position in the batting order.
B. Must always have a minimum of four (4) females defensively and offensively and a maximum of six (6) males defensively.
C. If players are added to the batting order, 6M-4F team may become a 7M-5F, 8M-6F, etc.
In other words, maximum two more males than females in the batting order.
New batting order rule is that you can bat your batters in ANY order.
You can bat all 6 males in a row if you wish.
SPN Coed Rules: Rule 13, Sec. 3 (page 55) Added: "If an incorrect batter is standing in the on deck position, indicating he or she is the next batter, a male batter that is walked goes to first base only (Ref. Rule 7, Sec 5)."
Batter's area redefined: Rule 3, Sec. 11 (page 13 of the 2015 SPN Rulebook)
"Sec. 11 BATTER’S AREA is that area adjacent to the home plate / strike mat, within which the batter takes his position when it is his turn to bat. Prior to the pitch, he must place 1 foot on the ground anywhere in the batter’s area, not more than 3 feet from the side edge of the home plate / strike mat. When striking the ball at the front of the home plate / strike mat, the trailing foot cannot be completely forward of the front edge of the home plate / strike mat. When striking the ball at the back of the home plate / strike mat, the lead foot cannot be completely behind the back edge of the home plate / strike mat."
Rule 5, Sec 10-D (page 24)
Made it official, something we always knew, but was never in the book.
Take a rule book on the field to argue with an umpire and you are tossed.
