Check the ASA Bat List
Recently the ASA Non-Approved bat list was updated to include at least one new bat. Coaches are required to have a copy of the non-approved bat list with them to provide to umpires. It is highly recommended umpires also carry a list with them. The ASA bat list can be located by going to the KSHSAA softball page and then on the right under “other information” click on the ASA approved bat list. There coaches and umpires will find an approved and non-approved bat list updated as of 4/11/2014.

State Sites
The application for umpires to work the state tournaments included the wrong location for a couple of tournaments. State tournament locations for softball will be:
6A – Blue Valley West High School, Overland Park
5A – Twin Oaks Complex, Manhattan
4A-DI – Bill Burke Complex, Salina
4A-DII – Green Sports Complex, Pratt
3A – Hummer Sports Park, Topeka
2-1A – Great Bend Sports Complex, Great Bend

Catchers Box is to be Marked
A reminder to those marking softball fields that the catcher’s box is to be marked in addition to the batters boxes. The catcher’s box extends 10 feet behind the back edge of the batter’s box and is 8 feet 5 inches wide. The catcher must be in the box when the pitcher assumes their position on the pitching plate.

Maximum Games
Softball players are permitted to play in 20 games during the season. Any amount of time in a contest as a pinch runner, courtesy runner or position player constitutes participation in that game. << continue >>
