Updated March 26, 2016
The City of Salem, players, coaches, umpires, and the community, in general, have joined forces to build a bigger and better softball program. As part of City of Salem responsibilities, City staff will register all teams with the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) and the Amateur Softball Association (ASA). Registering with these national affiliations provides teams the opportunity to play league and weekend tournaments, as well as state, regional, and national championship play. Teams may also have the opportunity to purchase secondary medical and liability insurance if desired through USSSA and ASA.
League and tournament play at the Wallace Marine Park Softball Complex will operate under a Code of Conduct (See Rule 1). All participants and spectators are expected to abide by the complex rules. It is imperative everyone at the complex supports a climate of respect, positive sportsmanship, and safety of self and others. Every complex guest will be held accountable for their behavior. The abuse of any of the rules and regulations stated herein will result in disciplinary action.
The City of Salem reserves the right to add, delete, and/or change any rules at its discretion. All leagues which play at the Wallace Marine Park Softball Complex will use the current USSSA Rule Book with the following modifications and additions.
