Thank you to those of you who have responded about fall ball. From the responses, it does not look like we have enough interest to have a co-ed league. However, we should have enough to have a men’s league.
Here are the teams that I have heard from:
- · Orange Crush
- · Inglorious Batters
- · Metallurgy Clergy
- · Toxic Sox (only have 5 players)
- · Wild Jokers (only have 7 players)
I would like to have the entire season take place before the end of October. There are 5 Tuesdays in October, so I envision a regular season where a team plays every team once, then have a single elimination tournament. This could be accomplished in 4 weeks with 5 teams.
For the teams that are short players, I have two suggestions. First, I have a list of a few free agents who are interested in finding a team. Contact me directly if you would like their names. Secondly, since there will be no co-ed league, there may be some players from those teams interested in playing in the men’s league. I would encourage the co-ed coaches to send me names and emails of players who would be interested in the men’s league this fall.
Please contact me ASAP if there are any concerns with this plan. Coaches, please start completing your rosters, SERP release forms, and team dues. Completed rosters and team dues ($300/team) must be turned into SERP no later than noon on Wednesday, September 25. Contact me for directly transferring funds via SLFCU. The first games of the season will be October 1 (baring upcoming weather delays).
Forms can be found on our website: http://snlsoftball.org/documents/
