NEW Updates for 2018- The POPS BOD heard you and to improve POPS Softball :
1) ALL games will be 9 innings
2) Legal BATS will only be ASA/USA Stamped bats. The ASA /USA list of bats NOT allowed - Illegal bats will be continued. See Rules & Bat list above. 
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 NOW ours. Look at the "Field Status" to the left for updated TURF fields.
