Replacement Player Pool

RWCLL uses a Replacement Player Pool in order to avoid forfeits when a team cannot field nine players.  The Replacement Pool is most often used while players are away for Spring Break or school trips such as Outdoor Ed, but can be used anytime throughout the season. Managers and/or coaches may only request a replacement when a team has eight or fewer players, and may request enough players to roster up to ten players for a game. The Replacement Player pool shall operate as follows:

  1. RWCLL’s Player Agent(s) will create and run the Replacement Player Pool by asking for player volunteers.
  2. The Replacement Pool shall consist of volunteers from the same division or age appropriate players from a lower division, regardless of east/west sub-division. AA players are not allowed in the Replacement Pool for safety reasons.
  3. Managers and/or coaches request Replacement Pool Players from the appropriate Player Agent.
  4. The Player Agent(s) will use the pool of volunteers to assign players to teams that are short of players on a rotating basis.
  5. Managers and/or coaches do not have the right to pick from the Replacement Pool.  Managers and/or coaches may not recruit replacement players.
  6. Replacement Pool players are not allowed to pitch.
  7. Replacement Pool players must play nine consecutive defensive outs and bat at least once.

Players may not be “borrowed from an opponent. They must be assigned by the player agent.
