Memorial Day 1-Pitch Tournament / Spring 2019

Post by sixofdiamonds » Wed Apr 24, 2019 7:41 am

Player registration now open and underway. Click here to register...

Date: Sunday, May 26, 2019
Rain Date: A rain date shall not be scheduled. If the tourney cannot be played on May 26th, it will not be played.
1st Game: 9:00 am (all games to be played at the Eureka Quarry Field)

Please note: This tournament is a wood bat affair. All core and all-star players will be required to use a wood softball bat - a single material wood softball bat without bamboo fillers or multi-piece construction. All male and female eddies may use any bat as set forth by Softball America’s regular season bat restriction policy.

Please DO NOT register for this tournament unless you are reasonably certain you will be able to attend. If, after registering for the tourney, you find you cannot attend, please be considerate enough to manager tandems and those on the alternate list to notify the league office as soon as humanly possible.

Cost: $15.00/player (2 games guaranteed)

This is a 1-day coed softball event. Eight teams will be formed entirely through a draft system based on individual player statistics. The 8 teams will then compete for the 1-pitch title. Each batter receives 1 pitch. If the pitch is fouled off, swung at and missed, or hits the mat behind home plate, the batter is struck out. If the pitch is a ball, the batter walks. The rest of the game is played in normal fashion. Winning teams will receive their choice of custom jackets or sweatshirts. Plaques and trophies will be awarded to the winning managers and tournament MVP's.

This is a great day of softball, fun, food and drink-- kind of like one big picnic where a softball game breaks out every 50 minutes. It's also a great way to meet other Softball America league members. Bring chairs, tents, coolers, and whatever else to make yourself comfortable. Make a day of it or come and go as you please.

Members will be listed in the body of the draft on a first come, first served basis. Entrants must be, or have been, a registered member of Softball America at some point in the past 23 years. Outsiders to the league are not eligible to participate.*

*Due to the lack of female league member participation over the last few tournaments, female outsiders will now be permitted to enter the tournament.

Along with 8 manager tandems (16 players), an additional 88 players can register to be drafted. The minimum player breakdown is listed below.

Core/All-Stars - 72
Eddies - 32 (24 female, 8 male)
Total - 104

Tournament play will follow ASA and SBA league rules with the following exceptions...

1. Core/eddie walk rule will not be observed.
2. 2nd foul ball will not be observed.
3. A 3-3-2 eddie rule will apply for this tournament - 3 eddies must be in the line-up, 3 eddies must play the field, 2 of the eddies in the line-up and field must be female.
4. All roster players must be in the batting line-up.
5. Batting line-ups must consist of alternating core/eddie beginning with the first or second batter.

Please know it is entirely possible you could be drafted to a tandem or end up on a team with people you don't like. If that is something you won't be able to deal with, please don't sign up. And please don't be one of those people that signs up, gets on a team you don't like then makes an excuse to bail out. Remember, this is softball. It's all about having fun and nothing more.

It is imperative the ball field grounds be left in good condition. If it turns into a landfill as a result of the tournament, we can all kiss the tournaments goodbye. That is not a threat. It is more of a guarantee. The ball field owners (Eureka Quarry) will not hesitate to pull the plug on us. Please keep that in mind when you pack up your stuff and leave at the end of the day.

Josh Donato (Team 5) can no longer attend the tournament. Normally, a lottery of marginally better and lesser players is held to determine a defecting player's replacement. Winner is in. In this case there is only 1 middle infielder of comparable ability on the alternate list. KC Ingram will replace Josh Donato on Team 5. Case closed.
