In our non-tournament league, any player who arrives to the game after the first pitch is eligible to play and is placed at the bottom of the batting order.

How does this scenario work in tournament play for late arriving players? Couldn't find anything about it in the rule book.

Thanks,

Ten players constitute a team. However, a team may start a game with no
fewer than nine players. A tenth player on the roster may be added any time
during the game, batting in the last (10 ) position. Until the tenth position is th
filled, an out will be declared only the first time that position comes to bat.

– Eleven players constitute a team. However, a team may start a game with
no fewer than ten players. An eleventh player on the roster may be added
