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 $50 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 Umpire payment guidelines:

  • Cancel via proper channels results in no payment.
  • Cancel within two hours of game time without advance warning at prior to two hours: $25 travel charge.
  • Cancel within arrival of umpire (within ten minutes to game start): $50 game fee.

Guidelines for safety:

  • The season is for those who want to be out there. If anyone is uncomfortable at any time given the current climate, they should have the ability to stop participating immediately.
  • At any point that the State or other authorities change their stance in any way regarding game play, the UGSA will likewise make appropriate changes.
  • Home coaches should make opposing teams aware of any additional guidelines prior to arrival. The home head coach is in charge of maintaining all guidelines on and around the field of play. Coaches will sanitize equipment after each game.
  • Each field must adhere to the current social gathering limit
  • All fans must remain 6 feet apart. All non-players are asked to wear a mask.
  • Coaches should have a mask at all times to be worn whenever possible.
  • Any individual with a family member showing any known or suspected symptoms of COVID must not attend. Players should be screened for symptoms including a fever just prior to attending the game.
  • All PLAYERS SHOULD BRING HAND SANITIZER, and sanitize or wash hands each inning
  • Anyone in the dugout must be wearing a mask.
  • Pre-game rules may be gone over from a socially distant space. All scoresheets should be traded virtually. Take a picture with your phone and text it to the other scorekeeper.
  • Umpires will adhere to same pre-game standard of symptom check, including temperature screening prior to getting out of their car.

Guidelines to follow if someone around your team feels ill:

  • Any illness is a presumed positive until they get a negative test or clearance from a doctor. Any positive tests should be reported to the League so that proper protocols are followed.
  • If a child/coach on your team falls ill, they should get a test to be sure. If that child had contact within the last 72 hours with the team, all team activities must cease until they are cleared or given further direction by a doctor.
  • If a child on your team falls ill, they should get a test to be sure. If that child had contact within the last 72 hours with the team, all team activities must cease until they are cleared.
  • If a family member of a team falls ill, that athlete must avoid all team events until their pediatrician clears the child for play.
  • It is not our job to spread the word of a positive test. It is just our job to keep everyone safe and follow CDC guidelines.
  • I spoke with doctors at CHoP for clarification on this. Any further degrees of separation does not have to go reported.

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.
