General Triple Crown Fastpitch Tournament Rules*:
Triple Crown is not a sanctioning body, but in several events will follow basic National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Softball rules with a few modifications that are listed below..
While the pitcher takes the signal, her stride foot may be on or behind the pitcher’s plate as far back as desired. Once the pitcher initially sets the toe of her stride foot, she CANNOT move it to increase the distance behind the pitcher’s plate. In addition, the pitcher must take or appear to take a signal while in the pitching and signal-taking positions.
All pitches including a pitchout must be legally pitched to the catcher and ball is live.
If any coach, parent, or player is asked to leave, the individual must sit out the remainder of the game and the following game. Refusal can lead to forfeiting games or teams being asked to leave the event.
Pitching Distance will be 43 ft. for all age divisions.
