We are happy to announce that the 2021 Class EE-E-D Hot Stove Baseball Season Survey is now available! This survey will be used to construct the 2021 Class EE, E and D regular seasons. All surveys are due by 8:00 PM on May 1, 2021.
The 2021 team fee for Classes EE and E is $400.00. The Class D fee is $600. Your initial roster, supporting documentation and fees will be due on May 23, 2021. Revised rosters will be due June 13, 2021.
The schedule will be produced from this survey! Each team is asked to only complete one survey. Any additional information should be sent to Pat Anderson once the survey is completed.
Classes EE, E and D will begin regular season play the week of May 31 and will play until the week of June 28. Tournament format will once again be double-elimination, all the way through the State Championship! The tournament will begin the weekend of July 10-11, but will be determined by the number of teams.

The following rule changes were voted on by all Charters at the October 13, 2019 Annual Meeting:
1. Continuous Batting Order - Allow all teams to use a continuous batting order if they choose to do so. Would have to declare at ground rules. If a player is injured during the game they would become an out when it is their turn at bat. This would be for all Hot Stove Classes HH-D. Class I would still be mandated to use the existing rule. The EH would still be an option as well. All players present at the game would have to be used in the batting order. If a player arrives late, they would have to be added to the bottom of the lineup. This would give teams that choose to use it, the ability to get more players in the game. This rule would be used in both regular season and tournament play. Substitution rules must still be met by class while using a continuous batting order. Player matching would not be permitted for teams opting to use a continuous batting order. This rule change has passed.
2. Change 60% Rule - Change the rule that states a double rostered player must play in 60% of played games to at least 50%. The existing rule excludes players that play in over half a team’s games, but often times calculates to 57-58%. The spirit of the rule is to eliminate stacking up a team for tournaments but often a player that played a majority of games cannot play because of the math. This would still ensure the player participates in a majority of the team’s played games and is eligible for tournament play. This rule change has passed.
In addition, the following items will be discussed at the meeting:
1. Elimination of the need to appeal a red light if verification of offenses can satisfy the board that previous appeal(s) has addressed the matter(s) driving the red light status. If an applicant receives a red light and successfully appeals to be allowed to coach, then that successful appeal will follow that applicant every year, provided the red light is given for the same offense(s). Applicant would still be required to email the Executive Secretary to be allowed to coach. Any new offenses would require a complete appeal process. This constitutional change has passed.
