2016 End of Year Dinner

Commish Corner
UPDATED 6/13/17

The 6th week is in the books. The POPS BOD are carefully evaluating all teams.We are aware that we have an uneven "top heavy" group of teams in all 3 leagues from the 40, 50 to 60 leagues. It could take 10-12 weeks to determine and make sure there are fair, equitable and even # of teams in each division set up for the playoffs
FYI - Every B or C division team are ONLY playing an A or B division team once each thru the first 10 weeks. In those games there are handicaps to try even out the playing field. It is the only way to fairly evaluate which teams belong in which division. It was either that or pick one team to move up to the A division and play all year against them. Or have one team move down and they could dominate the whole division.
  Stay tuned and check in every week.

 Bat List,There seems to be some confusion about the bats allowed in POPS Softball. Here is what our Rules states: POPS Bat Rule

The following bats are considered ILLEGAL (i.e., not permitted) - all other bats with an ASA stamp are permitted.

  • "Double Wall" bats, OR
  • Bats on the ASA Non-approved bat list - this list can be found on the Rules page of the POPS website
 This means every bat does NOT have to be stamped ASA approved. Umpires will be checking bats every game. If an illegal bat (shaved, rolled) or banned bat is being used the player will be removed from the game and suspended the next game. 

* If you are an individual or team looking to join POPS Softball, contact me at: commish@popsoftball.com

The Handicap Rule is in effect. Check the schedule to see which games are considered handicapped. 
* The handicapped teams can only score: 
a) 4 runs per inning for 40+ b) 5 runs for 50+ c) 6 runs for 60+ leagues. Except of course the last inning.
