• Welcome to the Jackson Wiffleball League


Jackson Wiffleball League 2019

Wiffle Ball season is finally upon us. It is time for the Jackson Wiffleball Committee to start announcing the schedule for the summer leagues and tournaments. I can confirm that there will be a summer league set to begin one week into summer vacation. This league set up will be far different than that of our normal or standard leagues. This League will consist of a draft format.The draft will take place on May 18th 2019. Below will be all of the stipulations, rules, and guidelines regarding the summer draft.

  • 6 team owners

  • Each team will get 3 picks in the opening draft

  • The draft order will be selected out of a hat.

  • The style of drafting will be in snake formation. ( Team 1 to team 6 then team 6 to team 1 etc.)

  • Following the draft will be a trading period.Once the trade deadline ends, any potential trades must be authorized by the 6 team owners, the vice president, and the president.

    • At this point team owners will be allowed to trade their drafted players to other teams for other players.

  • The trading period will expire on June 26th.

    • Trade deadline is set for June 25th, 11:59:59 pm

  • Once the teams are finalized players are not allowed to be released by the team and are not allowed to be traded

The league committee believes this will keep the league competitive and fun for all of the players. This will eliminate any potential cheating in the system. It will also keep a balanced competition. The following season will be similar but more interesting. Below are the rules on how it will function.

  • The teams will be reset. Every player will be put back into the draft

    • Team owners are still the owners of their team. The owners are not affected.

  • A draft order will be determined based off of playoff longevity and in season records.

    • Snake order will also be in effect.

If you have any questions about this drafting system make sure you reach out to the President Michael Pizzolongo. He will further elaborate and clear any uncertainty you may have.
