I think we all get handcuffed by local rules... We play Dixie, so 10u is tight base. The local rule on leaving early is automatic out. Not DDB... the reason, they don't want to waste time with DDB during the timed games... Thus our league is one and done in allstar tourneys.
BINGO. I just don't get why leagues can't see the correlation between teams that go far and leagues that treat every game like a tourney game! If I was in charge of making the rules for a league, my job would already be done for me in the larger leagues Official Rulebook.
