A formal protest was lodged last night against the Sticky Bandits (Wednesday Coed) for failure to abide by the all-star/eddie rule.

All-Star/Eddie Rule
Any coed team batting line-up containing more than 4 all-stars shall abide by the all-star/eddie rule and must at all times maintain a batting line-up that contains at least an equal number of eddies. A team with a batting line-up containing 4 or less all-stars will abide by regular coed rules. If, at any time during the regular season, by any member of Softball America, a team using 5 all-stars is found to be in default of the all-star/eddie rule, that team will forfeit all games in which the infraction occurred. All-stars are determined by the league and shall be adjusted yearly.

Sticky Bandits (Wednesday Coed) batted 5 all-stars and only 4 eddies on 08/23/17 in a game against the Titans. The Sticky Bandits win will turn into a loss. Individual stats will remain as is.

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 America shall reserve the right to apply the game suspensions to other leagues if the situation warrants, i.e. the participating non-roster sub is not a member of the league in which the infraction took place.

Manager Nicholas Todd (Yankee Clippers, Sunday Men's) has been issued a mandatory 3-game suspension for using a non-roster player under false pretenses (under the name of a roster player) in a game on Sunday, May 06, 2018. When the illegal player was discovered, he was immediately ejected from the game leaving the team with only 7 players and a forfeit loss.

Steve Hausman's suspension (Baron Von Fritz) has been rescinded.
