MSSC runs Spring, Summer, and Fall leagues each year. The Spring season is scheduled to run from mid-May to early July. Summer season should start in mid-July. Fall season starts in August. Season schedules are subject to change depending on the weather. You can sign up a team or register as an individual and MSSC will place you on a team if we have any teams looking for additional players. The recommended team size is 15 players.

 

Format

  • Teams are co-ed and consist of ten players on the field. At least four fielders must be female, and a female must hit at least every third at-bat
  • Team shirts, balls, and umpires are provided by MSSC. Players provide their own bats, gloves, and any protective equipment they wish to wear. No bats on the ASA's banned bat list will be permitted
  • Games are slow pitch and last seven innings (or one hour if that comes first)

 

"Upper" vs. "Lower"

 

Teams self-select their division, subject to MSSC approval. If you played in a prior season and we know you're good enough to play in Upper, we'll move you there if you register for Lower. Be honest about your skill level, as teams who are truly Lower division teams do not enjoy getting blown out by teams who lie, and it makes the league look bad for allowing that type of skill level disparity to occur. There is nothing wrong with being an Upper division team. No one in this division bites, and there isn't a guy in a mask chasing you around with a chainsaw. If you are at all questioning where your team belongs, you belong in Upper.

 

Dates and Location

  • The location for the 2017 Spring and Summer Saturday leagues is Bowman Park.
  • The Summer Wednesday night league will be held at Elver Park
  • Thursday and Friday Fall leagues will most likely be at Bowman or Goodman Parks, but the location is unknown at this time.
  • Spring and Summer games are played on Saturdays starting at 11:00 am.

 

Prizes and Other Benefits

  • All teams receive two free pitchers of beer after their games at our sponsor bar: The Red Zone on Regent Street
  • Champions t-shirts and gift cards will be awarded to the winners of the Upper division. The Lower division awards no prizes

 

For complete details, please download the Rulebook linked in the grey bar at the top of this page. When you're ready to sign up, click the "Team" or "Individual" button below, or click "Learn More" for the full details on dates, times, locations, etc.

 

Individual registration details: Individuals may sign up and we will place you if we have room. No payment is required at sign up; we will contact you if we have a spot for you and place you when payment is received. We typically are not able to place every male who registers as an Individual, simply because there are always far more males than females who sign up. Individuals will be placed in the order they register if we can accomodate them, so be sure to sign up early for the best chance at being placed on a team (or recruit some ladies!)
