Have fun out there and have another great season in POPS Softball.

* However, we are still taking additional players for the POPS waiting list, many of which we hope to get in.

This year POPS has expanded and will have 2 divisions in the 40+ & 60+ Over leaguesan A & B. In addition to 3 divisions in the 50+ league an A, B & C.

As promised, due to the unusual amount of rainouts in 2019 a CREDIT was given for each team that did not play their allocated number of games during that season. The credit was distributed to each manager in 2021. The credit will only be given to returning players from 2019.
Your manager will be informed of the credit given to each team and pass it onto you.
