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 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.
