WELCOME TO THE NORTH COUNTY SENIOR
SOFTBALL RECREATIONAL LEAGUE


Welcome to the league. Our league was established in 1989 for players 55 years of age and older.

Here are a few things you’ll need to know.....

WHO:

Players are eligible the year of their 55th birthday. Both men and women are welcome. You should be physically fit, in reasonably good health, with no physical limitations which would make your participation dangerous to yourself or others. If in doubt, contact your physician.

WHEN:

We play twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Games start at 10 a.m. and last about two hours. We ask players to arrive an hour early to help set up the fields, and warm-up. We play year-round, two seasons; 40 games per season. If you cannot play twice a week, please let a Commissioner know. If you cannot attend a game, please notify your manager as soon as possible, so arrangements can be made to find a replacement. In addition, on Mondays, we have informal games (we call them “pick-up games”) at Pine Park, Carlsbad (except in the summer when they move to Lake Park in Oceanside), beginning at 9 a.m. Your manager will provide you with a season schedule.

WHERE:

Our league plays in fields located in Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista. Currently we have nine teams. See your schedule for locations, or click on the "Maps" tab above.

COST:

Normally each player pays around $30 per season. This covers the league’s insurance, balls, and the use of the fields.

EQUIPMENT:

Each player must provide their own baseball glove, bat and shoes. Most teams have sponsors that provide team shirts, and may have team bats. (The shirts and bats are to remain with the team.) No metal cleats. Personal bats must be ASA approved and in good shape. No wooden bats. Composite bats, such as Miken’s Ultra II, may be used by women, or by players who are 75 years of age or older.


RULES:

We adhere to Amateur Softball Association (ASA) rules, with some local exceptions. Generally, we have alternate bases at 1st and home plate to avoid collisions. We also allow “runners from home” for some batters. Players must play at least 4 innings defensively and bat throughout the game. Please see the league rules for a complete explanation.

TEAM ASSIGNMENTS:

At the end of each year, the league has a draft which places players on each team. New players are assigned to a team by the Commissioners. No assignments are based upon players’ geographic location. You will be assigned on an individual basis unless you want to play with your spouse or carpooler. Please let the Commissioners know if you have a special request.
