The Vintage Base Ball Federation is a proposed baseball league which will play by the original rules of the game. Proposed by former Major League pitcher Jim Bouton in 2006, the rules will include:

  • Six balls for a walk
  • No strike count for a foul ball
  • A foul ball caught on a bounce will count as an out
  • A hit batsman will count as a ball and will not be awarded first base unless it is ball six
  • Only one ball will be used per game unless it becomes too worn out

Bouton is opening the league to any amateur baseball or softball team
