About the Capital District Church Softball League Equipment Required
The Capital District Church Softball League (CDCSL) is an official Amateur Softball Association (ASA) Modified Pitch Men’s League and observes all ASA rules except for certain “league rule modifications” that are detailed in the “Rules” link. Twelve regular season games will be played in 2017 on Mondays between May 1st and July 31st. No games are scheduled for May 29th, July 3th and August 7th, however, these dates are designated make-up dates for rainouts. All teams should be available to play on these make-up dates if their team experienced a rainout preceding any of those dates (e.g. a league-wide rainout on May 8th will automatically be rescheduled for May 29th). The first round of the playoffs will be held on Monday August 14th. The League Championship Series (Best-of-3) will be held on Monday, August 21th, Monday, August 29th and Monday, September 4th (if necessary). At the discretion of the Commissioner, due to excessive rainouts, the number of teams in a league or for any other reason, the league schedule, number of regular season games and Championship format is subject to change. There is a list of illegal bats on the ASA web site.

All teams must have five NOCSAE approved batting helmets and a catchers mask with throat protector in order to play.

In addition, providing bases for the game are the responsibility of the home team. The league uses a standard thick rubber home plate, pitcher’s plate (rubber) and thick, bag style bases.

Umpires Fields/Insurance
As in years past, we will use ASA umpires from the Capital District Softball Umpires organization. Before each 2017 regular season game, each team will pay a single umpire $31. While only one umpire is utilized for regular season games, two are used for playoff games. The 2017 two-umpire (playoff) fee is $41 per team. Field location and directions are due to the commissioner as soon as they are known. Each church team must provide its own proof of insurance to its home field. The CDCSL or its Board of Directors does/do not arrange, recommend or approve of fields. The use, condition and insurance coverage of any field used for games is the responsibility of the team and the Sponsoring Church.

Please e-mail the Commissioner, Steve McClellan, with any questions.
