     League Info, Rules & Guidelines 
    The Rec & Ed Adult Softball program is governed by the current USA Softball (ASA)  Rules. However, Rec & Ed has developed local league rules, which supersede ASA rules. Every team will receive a set of Rec & Ed league rules. Managers are encouraged to familiarize themselves with both sets of rules. All rules, rosters, results sheets, and other league forms can be found HERE.
     Roster Information
    A player can play on two different teams in two different programs. For example, a player can play on a Men's team and a Co-Rec team. Women may play in the men's league.
    Men's Slow Pitch 20 player roster limit
    Co-Rec Slow Pitch No roster limit
    Score Sheets, Result Sheets and Standings
    The home team must keep the official score. The team listed first on the league schedule is designated as the home team.  The winning team is required to submit the game result sheet to the league statistician via email immediately after the game. However, in the event your game ends in a tie, the HOME TEAM is responsible for submitting the result sheet. Managers  take a picture of your result sheet and email it to  ateamsports@aaps.k12.mi.us.
    Sponsor and individual awards will be presented to the division or league champion.  In divisions or leagues with 9 or more teams, individual awards will also be presented to the runner-up.
