2014 RULE CHANGES
The following rule changes were approved for the 2014 season by the 50 and 60 League Managers during the Team draft night of March 6:
1. Starting bat count changed to 1-1 (was 0-0). Foul allowed on initial 1-2 count, next foul results in a strike out.
Impact: speeds up game, should allow for more innings played
2. Next inning is open inning when game time clock hits 60 minutes (was 55 minutes)
Impact: potential time increase for game
3. Runners on first and third can be off bag in foul territory perpendicular to the bag. Must be between bag and coaches box line. On fly ball, runner must tag up from bag to advance.
Impact: safety rule for runners from getting hit by batted ball
This rule is currently being voted on by the League Managers and is not yet approved.
4. Substitute hitter can't advance past first base and runners can only advance one base (current is no limitation on sub hitter).
Impact: Subs are often top players and their hitting skills exceed those of player they are subbing for. This rule limits sub hitter's offensive output for team that he is subbing for.
Player applications (Player Application tab) are being accepted to be a substitute player for both the 50 and 60 Leagues. Your amount owed will be based on the amount of games you play, the cost is $6.00 a game. There's a possibilty that a substitute player can become a permanent team player due to a team losing a player.
For the 50 League, you may be able to join a Team as a permanent player for the whole season. Your application must be received by Friday, March 28.
For any questions, access the Contact Us tab and send an e-mail.
* We have 6 Teams in the 50 League and 5 Teams in the 60 League that will play a 20 game regular season beginning April 1. There will be playoffs for the top 4 teams.
The South Placer Seniors Softball Club, Inc. (SPSSC) hosts recreational senior softball leagues that play at Maidu Park in Roseville on Tuesday evenings beginning in late March to late September. We have both 50 and over and 60 and over leagues with a large number of tournament players in both leagues. New teams are drafted each year. SSUSA approved bats are allowed for both leagues.
For those new to the club, please be aware that we only function through the efforts of many club member volunteers and our Sponsors for the enjoyment of playing ball in this non-profit league.
