Pool Players Policy


The main goal at CAYB is to play and learn the game of baseball. Only in rare circumstances should a game be canceled due to insufficient players. The purpose of the Pool Player Policy is to ensure that games are played and not forfeited while ensuring that no one gains an unfair advantage. The Pool Player Policy should only be used to avoid a forfeit and not to supplement a team. If a manager is found to be taking advantage of the Pool Player Policy, the Board of Directors will take appropriate disciplinary action. Accordingly, the following rules shall apply to pool players:

    • All players drafted from the 7th round and down shall form the pool (6th round and down for 6U). CAYB will prepare a list of names and telephone numbers of all pool players. This list will be provided to the managers before regular season games begin. The list will not specify the round in which the player was taken. 
    • Managers shall use their best efforts to anticipate the need for pool players and secure those players prior to the start of their game. If a manager can field the minimum number of required players from his team a pool player may not be used. A manager may call any player on the list and inquire about their availability. A manager may also, if needed, acquire a pool player from the list at the field at any time prior to the game being declared a forfeit by the umpire. 

    • Some formality is required in the manner that a pool player is selected. If the manager or their representative can secure an eligible player, it is a valid selection and the game will proceed as scheduled. The Division Commissioner must be contacted prior to starting the game, or if the game has already started when the pool player was acquired, as soon as possible following the end of the game with the selected pool player’s name and original team. 

    • Pool players must bat in the last spot in the batting order and shall only be eligible to play in the outfield. Pool players must also play the entire game defensively unless deemed injured or ill during the game.

    • The maximum number of games that any one player may take part in as a pool player shall be 3 times total during the season, including tournament play. The pool player’s name and original team must be recorded at the bottom of the page in the official scorebook. 

    • If a pool player is selected, and thereafter a regular player arrives after the scheduled starting time, the manager, at their discretion, may choose to play or not play the regular player defensively. If the manager does play the regular player defensively, they will not be required to complete the minimum playing time. In no case will the pool player be benched for a regular player. The late arriving player will be placed into the last spot in the batting order behind the pool player(s). 

Coaches, it is your responsibility to reach out to the Commissioner of Pool Players prior to picking up a player. However, it is your responsibility to secure the pool player, Brandy only keeps track of who is being used! Text her the name of the pool player, their original team, and the date you are picking up.

When the Board of Directors deems it necessary, the Pool Player Policy may be modified.
