Year End Tournament Format - Sunday September 7th:

The season is almost at an end which means its time for the annual tier 1 and 2 tournaments, which will be held this Sunday September 7th.
 
Over the past years it has become a favourite amongst player's after introducing a final play-off spot for the winner of the Tier 2 tournament and bragging rights for the winner of the Tier 1 tournament.
 
The tier 2 tournament will be the same format as last year. The winner will fill the 12th and final spot of the play-offs.  We will follow suit with Tier 1 and will be picking teams randomly from a hat for scheduling
 
Before we make the schedule we need to know if you're team will be participating this year. We need an answer no later then this Thursday September 4, 2014.  6:00pm. If we do not receive a reply we will presume your team will not be participating.  We will be sending out the schedule on Friday. As we cannot guarantee your time slot please note that this is an all day event so schedule yourself accordingly.  Players will require 12 games to participate.

Altered bats
7/17/2012 5:37:10 PM
USBA members,

This is a reminder to all players.  The USBA does not allow any altered bats to be used during play.  Their has been several complaints by players and umpires that teams have been using altered bats which are not approved by the USBA and its rules. This is a formal warning, as of this week all players will follow the rule stated below and for further ruling please visit the NSA website.

Examples of altering a bat are, but not limited to the following: Painting a bat, replacing the handle or shaving the handle or barrel or the taper changed in any way. Such as by sandpapering or applying a solvent to the surface such as fingernail polish remover or by any other means. Removing or replacing the plug or changed in any way other than factory repairs. Had the knob removed/ replaced or changed in any way or had anything removed or added to the inside or outside of the bat other than the legal way to tape the bat the specified and appropriate place as described in the NSA Rule Book.

Regards,

Sincerely,
USBA Committee
