2010 ISC PRAWN Rule - Correction

Thursday, September 10, 2009
PRAWN RESTRICTIONS

A PRAWN (Player Rep All World Name) list will be maintained by the ISC containing each name of the two all-world teams for the most recent 3 years, including MV Player and Outstanding Pitcher. The PRAWN list will be released on Al's list by mid-September each year and posted on the ISC web site as soon as possible.
Each team will be limited to 6 players (combination of 1 pitcher and position players), plus exceptions (see below) that have been named All World in the last 3 years - only one of which may be a PRAWN pitcher. Teams are still limited to 2 OOR pitchers for the season. All teams must name their PRAWNs to the Executive Director by May 1 each year. If a player who is also a pitcher is selected to either one of the All World teams at a position other than pitcher, he will NOT be considered as a pitcher for PRAWN status but rather as a player.
Current hardship rule will be allowed given the following: the team replacing the player is still required to abide by the PRAWN limits for both players and pitchers.  E.g. if the player being replaced is a pitcher with PRAWN status and he was the only pitcher with PRAWN status on the team then that team may replace that pitcher with another PRAWN pitcher.
No team may add a PRAWN to their roster until their total PRAWN count falls below 6 except when a team loses its only PRAWN pitcher they may add a replacement PRAWN pitcher regardless of their total PRAWN count.
EXCEPTION FOR A TEAM THAT HAS 6 CURRENT PRAWNs:
 
 If a non-PRAWNplayer or players make an All World team in the current year, that team will be allowed to carry that player or players until such time that a PRAWNplayer leaves the team or drops out of the 3 year criterion.If a player makes All World while with Team A and they have 6 current PRAWN players, then Team A would be allowed to carry 7 until one of the 7 leaves the team (or they fall outside of the 3 year boundary), then they will only be allowed 6 for the following year.
This also applies for the one pitcher All World status restriction. If a pitcher is selected to an All World team in the current season and that team already has one or two pitchers on their team with PRAWN status, that team will be allowed to carry 3 (or however many) prawnpitchers until such time as one of the prawn pitcher(s) leaves the team or falls outside of the PRAWN status.
AGE EXCEPTION FOR PRAWN PLAYERS
If a non PRAWN player makes an All World team in the calendar year of or after their 45th birthday, that player will only be considered a PRAWN player for one year. PRAWN players who have made or make an All World team in the calendar year of their 43rd or 44th birthday can request to be excluded from the PRAWN list in the calendar year of their 46th birthday by providing proof of age to the Executive Director by May 1st of each year.
