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:



  • 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 acquire a pool player at any time prior to the game being declared a forfeit by the umpire. 
  •  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.
  •   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).


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