2020 Rules Changes
Minor changes to the 40 & over playing rules for 2020 but here is a recap of some rules that did impact the 40s last year.

Obliterating the Batter's Box-
  Any person that deliberately erases or obliterates the batter's box will be ejected from the game.   This rule will be strictly enforced in 2019.  Please make sure that your teammates are aware of it.

Pitch Count-
  40 Masters division is now 1-1 WITH a courtesy foul.

Courtesy Runners- The CR must take a position on the base before the 1st pitch to the next batter.  If not ready at that time, the CR must wait until the following batter to enter the game.

Runs per Inning-  The Major Plus division can score a max of 7 runs per inning prior to the open / unlimited runs inning.  Major and AAA divisions can score a max of 5 runs per inning prior to the open / unlimited runs inning. 

Roster Composition Changes-  40 Masters Major Plus will allow a max of 4 players from non-bordering states on their roster.  However, those "exception" players must reside on the same side of the Mississippi River as the team they are playing for (NY players cannot play for CA teams).  In the Major and AAA divisions, all players must come from the team's home state, or a bordering state.

World Masters Qualifying-    All teams (including Major Plus) must play in at least 1 SSUSA qualifying tournament during the year to validate their roster for Las Vegas.  This prevents teams from sitting out during the year, then loading up with unknowns for the World Championships. 

2020 Player Registration Incentive
Senior Softball-USA's originally launched it's 40 Masters program in the west by offering registration incentives to players.  It worked and the program flourished.  SSUSA is now doing the same to promote growth in areas to the east of the Rocky Mountains.   We are offering a Buy One, Get One incentive to new and returning 40 somethings.   If you are between the age of 40 & 49 you can pay for a 1 year card and receive the 2nd year free (max of 1 free season) This "BOGO" incentive is available to new registrants, or renewing players that meet the following criteria.
 
Certain restrictions apply:
1) You will be age 40-49 as of December 31, 2020.
2) You do not already have an active card for the 2020 season.

2020 Season Planning 
Senior Softball-USA has already posted most of the 2020 tournaments and will release the Tournament Guide in the next few weeks.  40 Masters teams can expect to find a few date & location changes to existing tournaments.  Look for new offerings in Nashville (April), a return to York, PA (May) and events in Florida (Ft. Myers and Tampa).
