Maybe it's not your child that plays baseball, rather you are coaching or assisting a youth baseball team. Either way, you need to be very confident and knowledgeable when it comes to the rules of the game to ensure fair play for all.
This is exactly where the Baseball Rules app has managed to carve out a niche for itself. This handy little tool works as a rule book or guides that you can refer to any time you like.
Use this app to view the rules for minors, tee-ball, majors, intermediate, juniors as well as seniors. This one small and basic app does it all, answering all the questions you may have.
There is also the ability to choose your language, as the app supports English, Japanese, Chinese and Spanish.
User-Friendly Interface Makes It More Approachable
The user-friendly interface helps to make this one all the more approachable. When you launch the app you'll be able to select your language and then your rule set.
Rule sets feature the OBR (official baseball rules in black and white), NFHS (high school baseball rules) and NCAA (college baseball rules). You can then search through the categories which are the rule topics. These include such things as:

Simply tap on the category you want to learn more about and you’ll find in-depth information.
While reading the rules may be enough for some, for others they need a bit more to make things clear. The app features several videos of infractions that can be extremely helpful to watch.
These videos highlight more complicated rulings, breaking down the call, making it clear what happened. It’s all about providing users with easy to understand information that is fast and easy to access.
