10v10 in the field: (7m/3f). Batting order is however you want. There can only be up to 4 more total males in the lineup than females (i.e. 7 males and 3 females or 8 males and 4 females). If an 8th male or more wants to be added to the lineup, a corresponding female must be added as well. Outs cannot be taken in place of girls when wanting to add 8 or more males to the lineup. Unlimited female hitters however.
THIS LEAGUE FILLS UP FAST, SO PAID PLAYERS ARE PRIORITIZED OVER NON-PAID AND CAPTAINS NEED TO BE PAID TO HOLD TEAM SPOTS. IF YOU ARE A FREE AGENT, YOU ARE NOT GUARANTEED A SPOT EVEN IF YOU ARE PAID. WE DO OUR ABSOLUTE BEST TO FILL EVERY PLAYER, BUT WE DO TEAM ASSIGNMENTS BASED ON A FIRST PAID FIRST COME BASIS AND THIS PROCESS IS NOT DONE UNTIL A WEEK BEFORE THE SEASON STARTS. IF YOU ARE NOT ASSIGNED A TEAM AND YOU PAID, YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE REFUNDED.
WE'VE ADJUSTED THE CO-ED REQUIREMENTS TO BE 7 MALES / 3 FEMALES ON THE FIELD (versus traditional 6M/4F).
TEAMS ARE REQUIRED TO BRING THEIR OWN BALLS TO THE GAME. MENS BALLS ARE .375 44 COMPRESSION AND WOMENS BALLS ARE .400 44.
YOU MAY ALSO BUY BALLS FROM US FOR $5 PER BALL.
A full copy of our rules can be found here.
Here are some important things worth noting:
Please arrive 15-30 minutes before your scheduled game time to check in with SARC staff. During the first week each player must sign the team’s waiver and pay any outstanding registration fees.
Payment for registration is due on the first week of games. You can bring Cash or Check to your first game or pay digitially using CashApp or Venmo (@savannahsports). IF YOU DON'T PAY YOUR FEES BY THE SECOND GAME, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PLAY.
We are getting a lot more strict with our sportsmanship rules. One bad apple can ruin this league for everyone, so we are starting to get more aggresive about how we handle this. Suspensions and bans will be issued to those who can't behave properly. We are all here to have fun, so please be respectful to your teammates, opponents and especially your referees. Our referees are trained on the rules and their say is final. If you'd like to dispute any calls, only the team's captain can do so and it must be done in a respectful manner.
SUBBING AND GUEST PLAYERS
If your team is short and you need a sub, please post in our Softball Facebook group to try and recruit a sub. Guest players are allowed to play during the regular season at no charge, but guest players who play more than a couple of weeks may be required to pay the league fee.
FORFEITS AND CANCELLATIONS
It is the captain's responsibility to make sure that their team has enough players to play. If your team does not have enough, please alert SARC Staff at least 4 hours before scheduled game time. If your team does not show up without notice, you may be subject to removal from the league. In the event of poor weather, we will send out an email and text message to alert you of any cancellations.
