All-Star List Formulation

The all-star list will be revised in both the men's and coed leagues for the 2019 softball year. League member Greg Thompson has developed a formula for producing all-stars based on a player's Runs Created (RUNC). We will give it a shot. This should eliminate what I call 'collateral' all-stars - all...

Bernie loves softball and never sits out a season. Bernie is sitting out this season because he is battling cancer. To make matters worse, his wife ...

League Work

Working for the league is a great way to get relief from the cost of league fees. I need an umpire for Sunday mornings. You would work 3 or 4 games per week plus post season games. At better than $20.00 per hour, it's a pretty good gig. All that is required is slightly thick skin, very poor hearing,...

Re: Monday Evening Coed / Summer 2018

A scheduling error on my part has resulted in a couple of games being shifted around on 7/2 and 7/30. An unconnected double header was the culprit. My apology for any inconvenience.

Wins/Losses/Ties

Often times a team's win/loss record will contain 1 or maybe even 2 ties. This creates some standings confusion in that most people don't know how to compare team records that contain ties to team records that do not contain ties. The easiest way to look at a situation like this is to give each win,...

Re: Rule awareness

1. Hitting the wrong bag at 1B is an appeal play unless an errant throw draws the first baseman off the inner bag in which case the first baseman can use the outer bag and the runner can use the inner bag. 2. At this point in time, over the fence home runs hit by an eddie (male or female) do not cou...

Re: Slow Pitch Strike Zone

A pitched ball that hits the white portion of the plate should be called a ball. Even if it is possible (don't know, not a physics guru) for a legal pitch to hit the white portion of the plate, ASA rule states it should be called a ball. Most umpires will call a pitch that hits the black portion of ...

Re: Interleague or Divisional Scheduling

Let's face it, the B teams are up against it when playing the A teams. I don't think anyone can argue that. One scheduled game played by the B vs. the A isn't going to make much of a difference to the B team standings as long as the B teams take care of business in their other 7 games. And, on any g...

Re: Interleague or Divisional Scheduling

We will have a 14th team. More than likely it will be a lower conference team. Chances are good we will go back to a 5-5-4 setup. The 7-7 setup really kills the chances of the lesser teams. All teams KNOW there is a HUGE gap between A and B. I believe the 'isn't a big gap' comments were in reference...
