Each team receives one copy of the Babe Ruth League official rule book. Additional copies may be requested from the South Orange Recreation Department.

The SOM Baseball Local Rules are a supplement to the Babe Ruth League official rule book. All coaches are expected to have a copy of both rulesets, either electronically or physically, on hand at every game. You may view and download the SOM Baseball Local Rules below.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the Rules Committee as a whole through the group email, the Rules Chair, or your league's commissioner.
