The MIAA has adopted the NFHS following rule change for the 2016 tournament:
“The NFHS re-entry rule (reference NFHS Rules 3-1-1 through 3-1-6) will be in effect for the entire tournament. Any of the starting players may be withdrawn and re-entered once, provided such player occupies the same batting position whenever he is in the lineup. The DH is considered the 10th starter and can also be re-entered (See N. for the new DH rule). Exception to NFHS re-entry rule:
If a pitcher is removed from the game and put on the bench he can’t re-enter as a pitcher for any reason. However, the pitcher can re-enter as a positional player if the re-entry rule is followed. A substitute who is withdrawn may not re-enter. After the umpire has received the official lineup card prior to the game, the player listed as the pitcher shall pitch until the first opposing batter has been put out or has advanced to first base.”
Additionally, Section N of the MIAA Tournament Format has changed. Please use link below to see examples of implementation of changes to Section N (page 9) and Section I-8 (page 7).
