Roseville Senior Softball - Winter 2019
filled in at load
The RSSA has continued to grow in numbers. This year we expect to have nearly 375 players participating in our four leagues or divisions (A-B-C-D). Unfortunately, this growth together with the limited number of playing fields available for play, has forced us to adjust the number of teams in each League. In 2019 we will continue to have four teams in the A League playing at Pioneer Park in Little Canada. However, we will now have seven (7) teams in each of the B, C and D Leagues playing primarily at Central Park in Roseville. This means that every league will have one team that has a bye every playing day and that there will be several players moving to the D League to accommodate the increase in D League teams. Your Executive Committee has reluctantly made the decision to have seven teams in each league even though we recognize that most players would prefer an even number of teams in each league so that they can play every Tuesday and Thursday. Unfortunately, we do not have enough fields available to do that. We are asking several players to move from B to C given the reduction of one team in the B league together with the addition of new players and players coming from the A league. Accordingly, we are also asking several players to move from C to D. We are committed to providing a playing opportunity for everyone who wants to play senior softball and hope that no one decides to drop out because of these forced structural changes. We continue to look for alternative fields that maintain our social structure and permit everyone to play where they are competitive and comfortable. We also recognize that increasing the D league to seven teams may create competitive and safety issues. We will therefore closely monitor the way in which the leagues progress and make adjustments as needed. John Remington, Commissioner RSSA
