Recap of Coaches Meeting Held 3/8/14

Two new teams have been added to the league: Next Step and Levick and Oakley

The Zerby Derby will be held March 23 at Red Lion and the Boulevard. 7 innings or 55 minute games, 2-2 count. If rained/snowed out it will be played the next week. We will be using pink balls for the tournament to show support for Sophia Pasquerella who is battling cancer. Half of the proceeds will also go to Sophia.

Norristown will be supplying their own ASA umpire during the season. This is because they have had issues with our current umpires finding and getting out to their field.

During the season we will be using the Star Tattoo ball, .52/300 with synthetic cover.
