Jan 22



By Codi Warren Jan. 22, 2013, midnight (ET)

A.      At the ASA Council Meeting in November 2012, the ASA Council voted to change the ball used in Slow Pitch Championship Play for some divisions of play. The rule change is as follows:

Rule 3 Section 3E [3]: EFFECTIVE 2014: The 52/300 12 inch ball will be the only 12” ball allowed in Men’s Adult Slow Pitch, Men’s Co-ed, Men’s Master’s Slow Pitch and Junior Olympic Boys Slow Pitch, with the exception of Seniors.

Comments: Removes the 44/375 12” ball as an approved ball for all Men’s Adult Slow Pitch, Men’s Co-ed, Men’s Master’s Slow Pitch and Junior Olympic Boys Slow Pitch Championship Play beginning January 1, 2014.

Any questions or comments regarding this matter should be directed to Craig Cress at 2801 N.E. 50th Street, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73111 email, phone (405) 425-3441, fax (405) 424-3855.

LEAGUE VOTE:  Do we adopt the .52/300 compression ball for 2014 or continue using the .44/375 ball?  Outcome = We voted to use BOTH softballs for 2014.  Teams hitting may throw either ball into the pitcher.

B.      Bats – LEAGUE WIDE REMINDER!!! HASA and ASA do not condone the use of illegal bats at any time, in any pf the HASA leagues played down at Josey Field. We’re sure out insurance carrier would have a major concern for those individuals involved with an injury related to a ball striking a player and an illegal bat being used. We’re almost certain that there would be some serious consequences for everyone involved.
