New stickers will be required for ALL bats this year. This is to eliminate any overly dented or cracked bats. Please save yourself time and remove all current MASA stickers.
Fill out a Bat sticker request and I will contact you ASAP and set up a time.
The flipping of a bat upon completion of a player’s time at bat is strongly discouraged by the MASA Board. As all players should be aware, a player willfully throwing a bat faces an automatic ejection. For bat flipping, the MASA Board is instructing game umpires to use their judgment as to a bat flip action which could be construed as throwing the bat. If an umpire, in his/her judgment determines a bat flip to being akin to the throwing of a bat, said batter will face immediate ejection. Also, if a flipped bat strikes any participant, including an umpire, said player will face immediate ejection.
For the 2016 season, the team winning 1st place in their division or 1st place in the playoffs will be automatically moving up a division the following year. If the team holds 60% of returning roster. This will be used with the 2015 standings. Teams adding players from a higher division could also see a bump as well. Please also note that the 2nd place teams will be in consideration as well.
Any questions please email the board at firstname.lastname@example.org
