Forfeits of Games During Tournament Play

NOTE: These policies apply only to the Little League International Tournament. They do not apply to local Special Games tournaments, such as TOC (Tournament of Champions), etc. This document was produced on Nov. 16, 2006. For any updates (which supersede this document), see the current issue of the Rules and Regulations.

No Tournament game may be forfeited or a team disqualified without the authorization of the Tournament Committee in Williamsport.

This means that a District Administrator or Tournament Director does not have the authority to rule a forfeit, or to disqualify any player, manager, coach or player from Tournament Play. Requests for such action must be forwarded to the appropriate Regional Headquarters.

Violations which may result in forfeiture or disqualification must be reported immediately to the Regional Director before further play takes place which would involve a team or teams affected by such action.
