Strat Tournament Player’s Club (STPC) Rule Changes for 2015

 

 

1)      In the Case Studies Section of the rules, the remedy that is applied when an illegal pitcher is used (was Section T31.2) has been changed and there is now a difference between the remedies for illegally using starting pitchers and relief pitchers.  T31.2 has been split so that now T31.21 deals with the illegal use of starting pitchers and T31.22 deals with the illegal use of relief pitchers.  The main difference is that now the starting pitchers can stay in rotation if an illegal starter is used when the offended manager accepts the result.  This change does not affect how illegal relief usage is handled.  See Section T31.21 and T31.22 for details.
