HOW POINTS AND OUTS ARE SCORED
Outs are determined as follows: Ball caught in the air
Ball hits the infield dirt first and does NOT roll all the way to fence Batter fouls out
Batter strikes out
Points are determined as follows:
1 point = Ball hits the grass without being caught or ball hits infield dirt first and rolls all the way and hits outfield fence
3 points = Homerun (unlimited)
4 points = Ball hits grass first and rolls and hits fence or bounces over (like ground rule double)
5 points = Ball hits the fence in the air 6 points = Walk
10 points = If pitcher is hit or even tries to field a ball and drops it (This is to encourage pitcher to stay behind the screen!!!!)
Pitching screen is part of the field, so a ricochet off screen is in play
