EP / EH clarification - MODIFIED LEVEL ONLY

An extra player, referred to as EP, is optional (on a game-by-game
basis), but if one is used, it must be known prior to the start of the
game (official line-up card) and be listed on the scoring sheet in the
Revised April 17, 2013
regular batting order. If the EP is used, he must be used for the entire
game (except in case of injury or ejection from game with no eligible
players left to enter, the rules permit play with eight men.) If an EP is
used, all 10 players bat, but only 9 can play defense each inning. The
person designated as the EP (not a defensive player at the start of the
game) may at a later time play a defensive position; the defensive
player now is only a batter for that inning and not a fielder. There will
always be one player in the lineup not on the field defensively. The EP
may be substituted for at any time, either by a pinch-runner or pinchhitter
who then becomes the EP. The substitute must be a player who
has not yet been in the game. Substitutes and re-entry will be treated
as in the past. A starter may re-enter the game into his same batting
order position
