Re: Conduct Unbecoming

Effective for the 2015 softball season and beyond, the penalty for managers who use a non-roster sub under the name of a roster sub will increase from a 2-game suspension to 3 games. Additionally, the non-roster sub who participates in the ruse will receive the same 3-game suspension. Softball Ameri...

Re: Conduct Unbecoming

Dan Owens (Holding Hands With Hookers, Sunday Men's) has been issued a mandatory 1-game suspension as a result of a game ejection on 05/06/18 for unsportsmanlike conduct. An additional 1-game suspension has been issued for blatant disrespect toward the game umpire. This 2-game suspension is effectiv...

Re: Memorial Day 1-Pitch Tournament/ Spring 2018

Richard Stead was not listed as a male eddie on the entry form. I will make the adjustment.

Re: Memorial Day 1-Pitch Tournament/ Spring 2018

As of this posting there are 8 eddie spots available. We will be hard pressed to reach my goal of 24 females. If we do, great. If not, I will adjust the eddie requirements downward. Core players that sign up moving forward will be placed on the alternate list. Alternates will move into the body of t...

Re: Memorial Day 1-Pitch Tournament/ Spring 2018

As mentioned, this tournament will be an eddie oriented affair. The focus will be more on eddies, in particular female eddies. Should a female eddie sign up and there isn't any room in the body of the draft, any male eddies over and above 6 will be moved to the core section. Any core player(s) that ...

Memorial Day 1-Pitch Tournament/ Spring 2018

The lack of managerial interest has created some changes in how this and future tournaments will work. We will run this tourney with 6 teams and start at 9:00 am Memorial Day Sunday, not the traditional 8:00 am. This year's spring tourney rosters will contain a higher eddie/core relationship than i...

Re: Memorial Day 1-Pitch 2018 / Manager Tandems

Wow, have things changed. We used to have a lottery to see which manager tandems got in for the 1-pitch tournament. Now, it's easier pulling teeth. My gut tells me it will be a chore filling the draft candidate list. So... we have 6 manager tandems. We will go with 6 teams. We can start later and fi...

Re: Wednesday Evening Coed / Spring 2018

The 2018 Wednesday Coed scheduling merry-go-round continues. Team #9, 2 Balls 1 Strike, has pulled out of the league at the last minute. It is said every dark cloud has a silver lining. So too does this dark cloud. Instead of a bye this week, Team 6 will play Team 10 at Hatfield 9:30. In the schedul...

Re: Memorial Day 1-Pitch 2018 / Manager Tandems

1-pitch tournament registration will not open until we have 8 manager tandems. Without 8 tandems there will be no tournament. Time is running out. If you are considering drafting and managing a 1-pitch team, now would be a good time to let me know.

Re: Wednesday Evening Coed / Spring 2018

As much as I don't want games to go to a Saturday, there comes a time where we have no other option. The many postponements have creating a serious scheduling issue making a Saturday make-up a necessity. In accordance with schedule guidelines, the postponed games from April 25th have been reschedule...

Re: Wednesday Evening Coed / Spring 2018

The postponed games from April 18th have been rescheduled. In order to avoid triple or quadruple headers and/or a Saturday make-up, I had to move a few things around beginning on May 2nd. Games for tomorrow, April 25th, remain unaffected. Ya know, the older I get the tougher it gets. I realize that'...

If an umpire disqualifies a player while a play is in progress, the disqualification shall not take effect until no further action is possible on that play and time is called by the umpire. If you hit a pop fly, throw your bat in disgust and then get ejected as a result of the bat toss, you are not ...

Horsham Township will be working to remove a large portion of the trees that line Dresher Road in the front of Lukens Park. Unfortunately, the majority of the trees are ash trees and have died due to the Emerald Ash Borer. This will cause road closures on Dresher Road from Gibraltar Road to Witmer R...
