Welcome to Premier League WIFFLE® a part of RIR WIFFLE. The PLW consists of the top 8 teams who must play well in order to keep their spot each season.
League Games are Mondays and Thursdays 5pm and Tournaments are on the Weekends.
A competitive semi-fast pitch format with clean balls and yellow tape bat played exclusively at Ranch Island Field in Las Vegas.
While there is no pitching speed limit, a ball hitting the strike zone must be 55mph or less to be a called strike judged by radar. There is no base running and infielders have 5 seconds on bat contact to make a play on a ground ball and hit the backstop.
League play is year round with three 48 game seasons playing 4 games a week. At the end of each season, the 2 last place teams are challenged in regulation play and must defend their spot against new challengers vying to join the league.
