MEN’S SOFTBALL LEAGUE 2019
The softball season will soon begin for leagues at our church field. Games will be played starting March 5 Tuesday and Friday games, depending on the number of teams that enter the league. Season games will end May 03. A total of 18 games will be played, and a double elimination tournament will be held Monday, May 6, Tuesday, May 7, Thursday, May 9, Friday, May 10 and the final games will be held Saturday, May 11. Total cost for the season is $355 + $120 forfeit deposit. The $120 will be refunded at the conclusion of the season, to teams that have not forfeited games.
A pre-season coaches meeting will be held at Dinsmore Baptist Church 6:30pm Wednesday, February 27. If you are interested in playing in our league, you must attend this Coaches Meeting. We have made some significant strides to improve our league and there are things you need to be aware of. We will be glad to answer any questions you have pertaining to the softball season. PLEASE bring a list of dates your team will not be able to play, because of your church’s conflicting schedule; also bring league fees of $355 and a refundable forfeit fee of $120. A REPRESENTATIVE FROM EACH TEAM IS REQUIRED!
If you cannot attend, contact Jason Love 904-838-5724.
