Play during the week and/or Saturday!

MSSC runs Spring, Summer, and Fall leagues each year. The Spring season starts in April and usually runs through mid-July. Summer season usually starts in mid-July and goes through late August or early September. Fall season usually starts in August or September. These timeframes are subject to change depending on the weather. The Summer and Fall seasons don't start until the previous season has been completed. You can register a full team or sign up as an Individual (or "free agent") and MSSC will place you on a team if we have any looking for additional players or we're able to form a free agent team. The recommended roster size is 15 players.

 

Basic Info

Some league information appears on this page. More is found in our Frequently Asked Questions and the rulebook linked in the grey menu bar toward the top of the page. General club policies can be found at the bottom of this page in the Info & Help section.

 

Format

  • We generally offer leagues at least four nights during the week. Nights may need to be consolidated if there aren't enough teams for any given night, so please choose alternate nights during registration just in case
  • Teams consist of ten players on the field. All leagues are co-ed, at least four fielders must be female, and a female must hit at least every third at-bat
  • Team shirts, balls, and umpires are provided by MSSC. Players provide their own bats, gloves, and any protective equipment they wish to wear. No bats on USA Softball's banned bat list will be permitted (a recent list appears at the end of the rulebook linked on this page)
  • Games are slow pitch and last seven innings or one hour - whichever comes first
  • Seasons are six regular season games plus single-elimination playoffs. All teams make the playoffs most seasons
  • Please read the rulebooks linked in the grey bar toward the top of the page for full details on formats and rules

 

League Capacity

 

Weekday leagues typically have a capacity that varies depending on how many fields we're able to get. The Saturday league has no capacity and thus your team could potentially play anytime between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. If you're considering a weekday league, don't wait until the last minute to register if you want to play.

 

Skill Level and Divisions

 

Captains will be asked to rate their team's skill level on a scale of 1-10. We'll form appropriate divisions based on the skill level of registered teams if we can. We reserve the right to change a captain's ranking of their team if they've played before and we feel the rating isn't accurate. 

 

Which nights are the most (or least) competitive?

This could vary greatly from season to season, but for Fall 2023, the weekday leagues are ranked from most to least competitive roughly as follows:

1. Friday

2. Tuesday

3. Monday

4. Thursday

 

This doesn't mean a lower skilled team can't sign up for Fridays, but we encourage better teams to gravitate toward the nights at the top of the list.

 

Individual registration details: Individuals may sign up and we will place you if we can. No payment is required at sign up. We will contact you if we have a spot for you and place you when payment is received.

  • Men: We typically are not able to place many males who register as Individuals in the co-ed league because most teams are not looking for additional males. 
  • Ladies: If you want to be placed on a team, it's best to sign up on your own and NOT request to be placed with a male, as there is a much smaller chance a team will pick you up if you want to play with a guy.

 

Dates and Location

 

  • The Monday league will be held at Olbrich Park for Spring and Summer
  • Tuesday - Friday leagues are held at Bowman Park on Fish Hatchery Road
  • The Saturday league is held at Goodman Park on Olin Ave

 

Scheduling

 

Since it's asked all the time: Schedules are posted a few days after registration closes. If you signed up for Tuesday nights, your team plays on Tuesdays nights, and you should be available for any time slot.

 

Prizes and Other Benefits

  • These can change from season to season and will be communicated to all teams via email
