Masters baseball is reserved for the physically mature players (over 35). Normal baseball rules apply with all masters games with the exception of the application of the "6 runs across the plate" in certain divisions. This rule is usually limited to the first three innings. There is also the unwritten rules of having fun and just doing your best. First time players are also encouraged.
Players in senior divisional teams may swing wood or alloy bats, provided that they meet the BBCOR -3 standard.
Teams consist of a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15 players.
Due to the longer recovery process of the older players, training is usually kept to the warm-up prior to games.
