Games will be either seven innings or have a two-hour time limit, whichever comes first, to keep things on schedule.

The games will be played in conjunction with the Ryan Lemmon Foundation this year. There will be a $5 gate fee at Great Park Stadium for adults, which will help with scholarship money for the foundation. Parking will be in lot No. 6.
