    Important Pre-Season Information

    Prior to the season: It is your job to confirm your schedule that is on our website. If you see a mistake, point it out. I suggest doing this at the beginning of every week as well. If there is a mistake there, the umpire will not arrive. The home team will have to pay $60 to compensate an umpire that is sent to the wrong time or location.

    How to report a mistake or to reschedule: Email me at shcyosoftball@gmail.com with this information in this specific format, I am handling over 60 teams plus my own program. I cannot take the time to play detective and figure out your shorthand.

    How to report a cancellation: Send me the game being cancelled in the below format. CC the opposing coach. If it is within three hours of game time, text me as well at 609 304-7598.

    New Pitching Rule

    Rule 6A, Section 1C: Both feet must be on the ground within the 24-inch length of the pitcher’s plate. The shoulders shall be in line with first and third bases. The pitcher shall take a position with their pivot foot in contact with the pitcher’s plate and their non-pivot foot in contact with or behind the pitcher’s plate. Comment: Allows female pitchers to start with one or two feet on the pitcher’s plate. This aligns the male and female pitching rule as it relates to foot placement.

    Rule 6A, Section 1E: The pitcher shall bring their hands together for not less than one second and not more than 10 seconds before releasing the ball. A backward step may be taken before, simultaneous with or after the hands are brought together. The pivot foot must remain in contact with the pitcher’s plate at all times prior to the forward step. Comment: Allows female pitchers to take a backward step from the pitcher’s plate, before, during or after the hands are brought together. This aligns the male and female pitching rule as it relates to stepping back from the pitcher’s plate.
