About Middletown Men's Softball


About Middletown Men's Softball League: We are a slow-pitch, NSA league that has been a mainstay of the Middletown, CT area for a number of years. We play our games at the fields behind Moody School on Country Club Road. We play mainly on week nights with make-ups played during the week if a field is open OR on weekends.

The Men's Summer League plays from late April to mid-August in Middletown, CT and is open to men ages 18 and over. We have A, B, C & D divisions for all competition levels, from highly competitive to recreational. We are using the same ball as last year for 2018

The Men's Fall League starts the end of August and goes through mid-October.

The 2nd 2018 league meeting is set for Wednesday, April 11th, 2018 at Moody School parking lot on Country Club Rd in Middletown.

Ill be there from 5pm-7pm to test bats, collect roster/team sheets and collect entry fee of $875 or remaining balance owed.

I need the entry fee to order softballs, pay the town for fields and get you into the divisions and make the schedule.

We are using the same ball as last year.

If you have ideas to make the league better this is the time to share them.


Key changes:

- Limited to 2 roster shares and they must be noted who they are when you hand in your roster sheet.

- Play with 9 ok, you CAN use roster shares to make 10.

- New Board members - Earle Francks VP of league operations and Dan Forlenzo Web site coordinator and game scheduler

- Established a Rule Enforcement Committee lead by Earle with Dan and myself as members.


We are asking for division winners to play Meriden division champs after season is over at Moody School

Fall Ball Winners



NSA Approved Bats Only

Our league allows only the bats listed on the NSA Approved Bat List
All bats will be tested prior to the first week of the season at Moody School or at my home. Also during the first week or league play in most cases. After that, by appointment only.
Once passing a sticker applied that MUST remain in plain view on the bat. If a bat doesn't have the sticker- it can NOT be used til it is tested and passes. 
Leave the wrapping on all new bats til it passes, some bats WILL fail from the manufacturer as they try to make them as lively as possible -- so save the receipt.
All bats MUST have the NSA LOGO stamped on them or they wont be tested.
Any cracked, dented, scraped, peeled or unpainted, or altered end caps bats will NOT be allowed for safety reasons.
If a bat is deemed unfit for play at anytime during the season, including playoffs, it can be removed by the umpire, so make sure they are in good working condition please.
That includes grips, tape, end caps and we can see the sticker!! 

Game Balls

Each team receives game-balls for the regular season, and additional ones will be provided for the play-offs.

***If the team rep with the new softballs is going to miss any games , please give new balls to someone and the scorebook if possible.****

Home team to provide 2 new balls per game and carry any extras over to the playoffs.

Must use the approved ball, No other balls can be used for game play unless approved by both teams and umpire prior to game starting or if no other used game balls are on hand.

Score Submissions

A forfeit prior to the game starting is recorded as 7-0 win for team not forfeiting.

A forfeit on the field for ejection, illegal player, etc leading to not enough players to continue at anytime is recorded as a score of 7-0.
