The TAYBS Adult Softball league is a co-ed league with the goal of providing an enjoyable, recreational activity for all participants, regardless of age or skill level. The purpose of these rules is to foster a spirit of friendly competition among the participants which emphasize the social aspects of the game and minimizes opportunity for friction and confrontation.
The league is open to everyone aged 18 and over.
The non-refundable player registration fee for the season will be $40.
There will be 10 teams with 14 players on each team.
Prebuilt groups are allowed; however, the league will add additional players to get up to the 14-player roster.
Players from the previous season, can request to play on the same team as last year.
The game will be played with 70’ base paths, and a 46’ pitching distance.
Teams will play with 10 fielders on defense – with at least 2 of them female.
Games are slow pitch, three swing and misses and you are out, 7 inning games.
There are no coaches, and each team will designate a “player-captain”.
All games will be played at Craven Field at 15 New Fitchburg Rd, in Townsend, MA.
The Snack Shack will be open for sales with all proceeds going back into our youth programs.
Each team will be designated a color, but the teams must come up with their own unique team names.
Games are once a week on Saturday’s and will begin on September 4th and end on October 24th.
Games will be 95 minutes and scheduled in 105-minute blocks - start times adjust every week.
Two-day single elimination tournament on the final weekend of the season. 4 full length games will be played on Saturday, and 5 full length games will be played on Sunday.
If you no show for 4 games in a row, you will be considered withdrawn from the season. If you have not picked up your shirt, it will be forfeited at that time.
To help with the burden of running the snack shack for almost 12 straight hours every week, we are asking that everyone take one 1-hour shift per season during a time that you do not have a game.
The league will have a team picture taken of each team on week 5 – October 2nd.
