  2. Rotate fielding substitutes game to game. (ie. DO NOT substitute same players every game.)
  3. Call-up Rule: The rating of the missing player will determine the rating of the player being called up. (ie. A 1 or 2 rated player missing will allow a 1 rated player being called up. A 3 or lower rated player missing will allow a 2 or 3 rated player being called up.) Call ups for Minor AAA should be 3rd graders and call ups for Majors should 5th graders. The call up can only play the outfield and has to bat last. The league commissioner will issue all call ups. A call up cannot be used to start a game over a roster player in the event of 10 players. However, once called up, they must play a minimum of 6 consecutive outs and bat at least once. There are no call ups during playoffs without permission from the Commissioner.
