Game Disconnects

A game is considered a regulation game — also known as an “official game” — once the visiting team has made 15 outs (five innings) and the home team is leading, or once the home team has made 15 outs regardless of score. If a game is terminated before becoming an official game, the results up to the point of the termination will not count and the game will be started over. However, in order to combat any abuse of the “disconnect rule”, the commissioners have final discretion on all disconnected games.

Trades with a CPU controlled team are permitted.  All CPU trades must be approved by the League Directors.
