Fall Adult Softball League

The TAYBS Adult Softball league is a co-ed league with the goal of providing an enjoyable, recreational activity for all participants, regardless of skill level.  The purpose of the league is to foster a spirit of friendly competition among the participants which emphasize the social aspects of the game with minimal opportunity for friction and confrontation.

Here is currently our plan for the 2020 Fall Season.  It is still considered draft, and might change beforehand.

  • The league is open to everyone aged 18 and over.
  • The non-refundable player registration fee for the season will be $35.
  • There will be 8 teams, with a minimum of 14 and a maximum of 16 players on each.
  • The game will be played with 70’ base paths, and a 50’ pitching distance.
  • Teams will play with 10 fielders on defense – with at least 2 of them female.
  • Games are slow pitch "(mostly) swing till you hit", 7 inning games.
  • There are no coaches, and each team will designate a "player-captain".

  • The Snack Shack will be open for sales with all proceeds going back into our youth programs.
