Little League Tournament Rule Question

    One of the 2021 LL tournament rule changes was around mandatory play.  In the discussion on the rule changes it states that a player may not be removed for a substitute before fulfilling their mandatory play requirement.

    However, when you read the actual rules it clearly states (Rule 10.C) that a SUBSTITUTE entering the game for the first time cannot be removed before fulfilling the mandatory play requirement.

    Question is could a STARTER begin the game, be replaced with a sub prior to fulfilling the mandatory play requirement, and then come back in the game (allowed per re-entry rule) and fulfill their mandatory play requirement when entering the game for a second time?

    Unique situation, but not clear between the discussion on rule changes, vs the actual rules for the 2021 tournament.
