2019 Insurance (New Policies and Renewals)

Joe K. has sent out the following:

 

Dear 2019 MGSL Teams,
 
This email address the MGSL insurance plans for the 2019 season.  For those not fully aware, limitations on the NSA/WestPoint insurance have been brought to our attention.  Other organizations have opted out 100% from the NSA/Westpoint program.
 
You have options
 
1) Continue with NSA/WestPoint as in the past, accepting their coverage as is - Purchase
    through Joe Komoroske
2) Contact Sadler Insurance see below - Columbia, SC 
3) Contact Donald Houck see below - Amherst ,NY
4) Research your own
 
Pricing - the 2019 MGSL NSA/WestPoint insurance package as in the past will be $170.00 per team for those 18U an under
              Sadler will probably cost you less, particularly for 10's and 12's
              Donald Houck will quote you based on your specific needs.  Ask Joe K for the
              application form
 
NSA limitations -
The NSA policy will cover the teams during practice and sanctioned play of softball.
                               (Sanctioned play is defined as - Must have rules and regulations in place)
Friendly’s, Round Robbins and scrimmages are not covered under the NSA policy.
 
There is more NSA/WestPoint information below the contact lines

Additional NSA/WestPoint details
 
 A closer look at the certificates indicates that the Metro Girls Softball League, Inc. is an additional insured under the NSA policy. This means that Metro and the teams that have opted into the NSA coverage share in the policy liability limit which appears to be a maximum of $3M per occurrence and a maximum of $4M available during any policy year. The $4M aggregate (max per policy year) is fine unless there are lawsuits whose cumulative total exceeds $4M.
 
The policy does not appear to include: Crime coverage (theft of money and/or employee or volunteer
dishonesty) nor is there insurance for business personal property (equipment, bats, balls, any other items owned by the teams).

GHOST bat Revised

 

The Ghost Bat notification below is under review for the 2019 season Ghost bat issue is under review for the 2019 season 

A USA/ASA bat test report was published on 6/28/18 and sent to the MGSL on 7/5/18.  The results of that report/testing are not fully agreed with.  For the time being the blue/gray labled Ghost bat is suspended for MGSL games.

The GOLD Ghost bat is 100% illegal for MGSL play.

2019 Easton Ghost Fastpitch Softball Bat -10oz USSSA FP19GHU10

The 2019 USSSA Easton Ghost brings a new meaning to "hot right out of the wrapper", as this bat truly has ZERO BREAK-IN needed, with a design that has never been seen before! The game-changing Double Barrel Design, which combines an inner barrel with the lowest legal compression possible, along with a Soft Outer Barrel, and you have extreme pop and performance from day one! The handle and barrel are fully composite, as Easton uses "XTX" (Xtra Tough Resin Matrix), which is a first class carbon fiber composite material for a durability that lasts day in and day out. The Ghost is made as a 2-piece, and the barrel-to-handle is connected with Easton's ConneXion Technology that has been redesigned to enhance the overall feel and eliminate that unwanted sting/vibration from getting to the hands. Get your Ghost Fastpitch Softball Bat today, right here at CheapBats.com!
