NEW SCHEDULES FOR BOTH LEAGUES - UPDATED APRIL 4, 2014
Click on the League Schedules tab to access the new schedules for both leagues. The schedules were updated in order for a 20 game schedule to still be in play and for some scheduling issues. Any future games cancelled are not planned to be made up.
Uniforms/Game Balls will be handed out to Team Managers before start of games on April 8. New hats will be handed out to new members only. Existing members need to bring their hat from last year.

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. Beware - runner can be tagged out whenever off base for live ball.
Impact: safety rule for runners from getting hit by batted ball
4. Substitute hitter can't advance past first base and runners can only advance one base (current is no limitation on runners).
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 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 8. There will be playoffs for the top 4 teams.
