I have a AA team that is expecting only 8 players at their next game, with two who will be late (I don't know how late).

The manager is talking of getting pool players to fill in until the 2 show up.
Trouble is, this is the only team we have in AA.
I think I can pull some young ones from a AAA team, but I'm not sure.

Plus, what are the rules for these pool players, exactly?
I know they can not pitch.
But what would the rules be regarding the two who show up late?

I'm not sure if the AA/AAA designation is used only by our district, but they are both minors.

If the manager has 8 and 2 will be late wouldn't he/she will need 3 pool players to be able to start the game with 9?

It's minors (CBO) so the late arriving players just get put at the end of the batting order when they get there.

Per LL regulations the pool players cannot pitch and must play 9 defensive outs and bat once (not a problem with CBO).
Some leagues have additional rules/restrictions for pool players.

I think he's saying 8 plus the two that will be late.

 

It the league has only one AA team they are splitting it up too finely.

 

Reschedule the game.

Makes sense.
My answer stands, the pool players must get an at-bat and play 9 defensive outs.
The late arriving players, if they get put into the game, are added to the end of the batting order and must meet MPR.

Thanks for the help.

It turned out that we wound up having 8 to start the game.
You only need 8 to make it a legal game in AA.
No pool players were needed after all.

I did try to get the manager to reschedule the game, but he didn't for some reason.

What do you mean if the league has only one AA team that we are splitting it up too finely?
What does that mean?
