Triple Crown Sports statement on the Coronavirus:

Like the rest of the nation, Triple Crown is making day-to-day assessments of the threat posed by the Coronavirus and will be watching closely as information continues to be shared by medical authorities and other enterprises where people gather at events.

We encourage our customers to adopt the best-practices advice you typically see for flu season – wash your hands thoroughly, keep your hands away from your face and mouth, sneeze into the crook of your arm and not your hands, and stay home if you are feeling ill. The elderly and those with underlying health issues should take extra precautions and consider minimizing their travel and exposure.

Triple Crown Sports events happen at multiple locations over a period of months, which means we will look at each event independently to see if a response to the Coronavirus is necessary. Please watch what your local health authorities are recommending about the Coronavirus, as different regions are facing different challenges.

*Each player on the roster gets (1) additional inning per game played starting in a team's fifth game played.
*Scorecards must be signed by both team managers to eliminate inning validation problems. (Managers, please help with this process.)
*No limit on number of appearances.
*A mound appearance resulting in any single pitch (warm-up pitch or game pitch) being thrown or a play will be considered an inning pitched.
*Eight warm-ups to start, five thereafter.
*If pitching rules are violated and the infraction is detected, the situation will be reviewed and consequences will be determined by the tournament director. Consequences may include, but are not limited to: coach and/or player ejections, game forfeiture, removal of team from the tournament, suspension from additional tournaments.
