Little League Rule Book rule book

Little League baseball rules are updated and published every year in what is referred to as the "Green Book" (The latest versions are now blue but often still referred to as the "Green Book"). Little League keeps a strong hold on thier rule books and do not distribute them freely to participants. Each team is issued 2 rule books at the start of the season (one for TBall and Coach Pitch) and CRLL does provide new umpires with a new rule book when they complete thier intial training.

Hard copies of the rule book are available for purchase from the Little League International website for $7.00 US and digital e-copies are available for $4.99 US. For parents interested in purchasing a rule book please contact Pres Carleton Russell as CRLL my be able to order copies at a reduced cost.

CRLL House Rules

CRLL house rules are available for parents and coaches. These rules are periodically updated. It is expected that an updated version will be available prior to the start of the 2019 Spring Season. These rules are generally applicable to all CRLL divisions noting however that there specific rules governing the Ottawa Interlock League for our Junior an and Senior divisons.

Interlock Rules

Dependent upon the number of teams across Ottawa at the Junior and Senior Divisions, our CRLL teams will play in an interlock league with either our District 6 sister leagues or in some situations with a larger interlock of leagues around the greater Ottawa area (Districts 6 along with 2,7, and 8). Although the Interlock rules for both situations are similiar there are subtle differences that coaches and players should be aware of.
