League Office: Rule Changes and Special Rulings

The management of Benchwarmer Baseball reserves the right to make rule changes, clarifications, or rulings at any time. In practice, all changes will be in place by the start of the regular season. However, occasionally there will be loopholes or conflicts between different rules that require an immediate ruling. Also, it is possible that situations will come up or questions will be raised that were never considered.


It is possible that some rule changes for the playoffs will be instituted before the start of the playoffs and for off-season procedure changes to be announced at the beginning of the off-season.

Financial Penalties and Compensation

Benchwarmer Baseball reserves the right to fine teams in Benchwarmer Bucks for actions not in the interest or spirit of the game. In addition BWB may set up, in advance, team penalties for rules infractions, such as roster problems or missing deadlines. At this time, there is no intention to use either of these options, but simply to code the possibility into the rules.


More likely, however, the league may provide teams with financial compensation in certain situations. From time to time, the league office will make mistakes and, if caught soon enough, will reverse the mistake. However, it may occur that too many subsequent actions have taken place for reversals to be handled easily or without disrupting other teams (for example, a mistake in transaction order that is not caught until many later selections are affected). In that case, the league may provide Benchwarmer Bucks back to the team in an effort to provide a good-faith effort at compensation.
