2017 End of Year Dinner

Commish Corner
UPDATED 4/14/18

The POPS BOD met this week and decided on the following updates to IMPROVE the league for 2018:
1) ALL games will be 9 innings
2) Legal BATS will only be ASA/USA Stamped bats. The ASA list of bats NOT allowed - Illegal bats will be continued. 
3) Playoffs will continue to be "double elimination" for all teams.Triple elimination was NOT feasible due to time and field constraints
4) The POPS end of the year dinner will be restructured. 
5) There will only be ONE All- Star game with one player per team from the 40+ and 50+ teams combining to play one game. 
6) There are NO definitive divisions in any league. We are starting the season with basic divisions but each is subjective to change based on results.
7) *Turf Fields are still being investigated.
