2012 Season Starts May 1st
The 2012 ROPE Baseball season starts on May 1st.
The city has put fences around the diamonds which resulted in a rule change:
A player is allowed to hit only one “Over the Fence Home Run” per game. Any subsequent balls hit over the fence during the game by the player will constitute an automatic double.
The number of “home run doubles” that are hit will be tracked and on June 30th the rule will be reviewed to determine its effectiveness and need.
