AUBURN – Auburn Parks and Recreation Softball offers two summer leagues, each with a special character of play. Each league is slow-pitch and sanctioned by ASA, and abide by ASA rules with a few exceptions per league.

Teams registered in the league last season may register through April 4 to guarantee a spot this year. Open registration then will take place from April 7-18. It is open to any team, new or returning.

The season will run from May throgh August.

Co Rec League fees for 2008 are $560. Players League fees are $750, with a $200 minimum deposit required at registration. League fees do not cover team equipment, balls, uniforms and related materials.

Rosters must have a minimum of 14 players and a maximum of 20, with a simple majority of players being Auburn/Lewiston residents. Proof is residency is required for those players. Auburn/Lewiston businesses may enter a team under the “industry” clause, which waives the residency requirement. Industry teams must be completely made of full-time employees of that L/A business location. All teams entering under the industry clause must provide proof of full-time employment for all players listed.

Each team is assessed league dues, determined by the total number of teams in the league, number of officials required per game and total number of games scheduled, to cover field usage, umpires and awards.

If you wish to play but are not affiliated with a team, you may leave your name with Auburn Rec for placement in the player pool. This list is made available to teams that need additional players. Player placement is not guaranteed.

League distinctives are as follows:

Co Rec – For women or men ages 18 and over. At least one-third of the roster must be made up on women. During play, four women and six men make up the defensive team. Games are played Sunday afternoons and evenings.

Players – For ages 18 and over. This league is ideal for the experienced player and allows skill and game knowledge of the more mature player to shine. Teams typically play one game per week for a 14-game regular season. The league utilizes a Worth Blue Dot ball or equivalent, and teams are limited to two home runs per game.

Regular-season play will be followed by a double-elimination tournament. Games are played on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
