If you would like for the North Texas Women's Softball Association to advertise any fundraiser or event for your team on our web or Facebook page, please contact Amy Torrez to provide the information that you would like to have published.
There is a new rule now in place to assist teams in avoiding forfeits.
Teams will be allowed to pick up a maximum of three (3) players from other teams within the NTWSA league to avoid having to forfeit.
There are times when a team is unable to avoid a forfeit but every effort should be made to play the games as they are scheduled.
FORFEIT PENALTY FEE SCHEDULE
Located by clicking on the forfeits link on the left-hand side of the page.
We encourage you to keep track of each batter for your team as we will be presenting awards after the Spring & Summer season for the league leaders. Awards will be presented for most singles, doubles, triples, home runs, and grand slams.
Please submit that information to Amy Torrez after each game via live form (Batting Tracker Form can be found on the sidebar link), text, or email.
It is the responsibility of Coaches / Managers to ensure that your team is aware of game schedules, changes, and any league events.
Information is posted on this website and on the NORTH TEXAS WOMEN'S SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION Facebook page.
DID YOU KNOW ...
The original softball was a rolled-up boxing glove. Softball was invented in 1887 in Chicago as an indoor game. It was at various times called indoor baseball, mush ball, playground, softbund ball, kitten ball, and, because it was also played by women, ladies' baseball. The name softball was given to the game in 1926.
The first women’s team was formed in 1895 in Chicago’s West Division High School in the United States. There was no coached competition, and they were not considered comparable to men. They used large, 17-inch softballs without gloves or catcher’s masks. The bases were sand bags set 27 feet apart while the pitching mound was only 22 feet away from home plate.
The women’s game utilized nine players, with two at shortstop and two in the outfield. More of a social sport, women’s teams emerged in the late nineteenth century.
