This will be the last regular weeks schedule.  After games are completed, the POPS board will determine divisions, final standings, etc. The "Playoffs" are officially scheduled to start the week of July 22nd. The playoff schedule will be posted after this weeks games conclusion. 

Makeup games have been updated on the schedule as well. Managers have been reminded to take "team pictures" for the website.

The POPS "Scholarship" committe met and selected seven recipients for this years scholarships. They are listed to the right and below. Congratulations to all the families of these outstanding kids. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Based on request of players and a survey of managers in the 50+ league, the POPS board voted to have two leagues.  A 7 inning & 9 inning league. 12 teams voted for 7 innings & 4 voted for 9 innings. Consequently, there will be 3 champions. One from the 9 inning league and two from the 7 inning league, where the league will be split up to form 2 divisions for the playoffs.  _____________________________________________________________________________________

GREAT News!!! It is offcial - Oceanside HS, our home field is getting TURF this fall. That means less rainouts, more room for makeups and a safer field for 2025. ___________________________________________________________________________________

It was great to see so many smiling faces. Men renewing friendships, having a night out, the competition and camraderie. Its what POPS Softball is all about. ___________________________________________________________________________________

POPS has almost 600 players this year who are playing in 3 leagues. The 40, 50 & 60+ leagues. I feel horrible we were unable to get the 3 teams and 67 players into our league from the waiting list. POPS will continue to try to get good fields to add these players next year. 

I'd like to "Welcome" the new teams and players to POPS Softball. You will find POPS is known as a "Brotherhood" where good competition, camaraderie and new freindships are the standard. ___________________________________________________________________________________

New Players or New Teams looking to join POPS Softball in 2024 can contact the Commish @ commish@popsoftball.com

Update-  POPS has gotten permission to add a "Port A Potty" at Oceanside HS.. It is placed behind the 1st base dugout, attached to the fence. Every manager has the combination of the lock and this will stay until after Fall Ball is completed. Please make sure to LOCK it when done. This means there are now facilities at every field we play on.
