We have approximately 350 Members (men and women) ages 55 to 80+, who continue to love to play organized softball from early Spring until the snow begins to fly in the Fall in an organized, competitive, and safe environment.

EMASS TEAMS GOING TO CUBA NOVEMBER 12TH THRU 20TH

The US Treasury Department has once again issued a license for EMASS teams. The dates will be November 12-20. This is the Sixth Year EMASS teams are going. Several of the same players are returning again this year, but there is room for new players as well. Everyone interested in playing should contact Gary Siegel at siegel.g@comcast.net.

An informational meeting is tentatively set at the Wayland Town Hall for Wednesday August 13 at 7:00 PM for everyone interested. Please RSVP to Gary.

There will likely be some players joining us from the Red Sox organization this year, and several other surprises as well.

NOTE ADDED TO PITCHING SCREEN REGULATIONS FOR CLARIFICATION

Because a pitcher delivered his pitches in a recent American Division game using a technique (potentially unsafe and/or to gain an advantage), which was not specifically prohibited by our EMASS RULE 15, (and the ASA umpire at the field opted not to penalize the pitcher), there is a need to "clarify" our current Rule 15.1 by inserting a note at the end of the list of section 15.1.

RULE 15: PITCHING SCREEN REGULATIONS

15.1 The location and position of the Pitching Screen will be as follows:
(a) The Pitching Screen may be placed on either side of the pitching mound.
(b) The Pitching Screen will be no more than five (5') feet in front of the front edge of the pitching rubber.
(c) The Pitching Screen must be placed in line with the end of the pitching rubber.

Note: Pitchers shall release the ball in full view of the batter from either the right or left side of the pitching screen. The pitcher shall not pitch the ball over the top of the pitching screen.

The remainder of RULE 15 remains the same...

This Note does not impose a new rule, nor does it remove a rule that previously existed. It was added solely to clarify the intention of our EMASS Pitching Screen Regulation for the remainder of the 2014 season. The full wording of RULE 15 is expected to be readdressed prior to the 2015 season.

EMASS SEVERE WEATHER POLICY

In light of the significant danger posed by lightning to EMASS ballplayers, we have implemented a strict policy based on the ASA Guidelines and the National Weather Service Guidelines. This is not a discretionary call on the part of the Umpire but is MANDATORY.

AT THE FIRST SOUND OF THUNDER, THE UMPIRES HAVE BEEN DIRECTED TO SUSPEND PLAY AND SEND ALL PLAYERS AND SPECTATORS TO THEIR CARS. PLAY MAY NOT RESUME UNTIL AT LEAST THIRTY (30) MINUTES HAVE PASSED FROM THE LAST THUNDER CLAP OR LIGHTNING FLASH. Each time additional lightning is observed or thunder is heard, the minimum 30-minute waiting period should be reset.

NOT AN EMASS PLAYER THIS YEAR, BUT WANT TO BE INVOLVED?

EMASS has two options available for the 55-year-old (or older) ballplayer in 2014. You can do either, or both, of the following:

(1.) Add your name and contact information to our wait-list (specifying the division(s) for which you'd like to be considered). We'll contact you if and when an opening occurs on a team in an appropriate division. To do this, please click here and supply the requested information.

(2.) Register to become an EMASS Associate Member (again, you must be at least 55 years old) and participate in any or all of our scheduled open pick-up games. This will give you a chance to meet and workout with EMASS players, check your skills (after maybe being away from the game for a number of years), work on your hitting, fielding, conditioning, without requiring a long-term commitment on your part. Attend when it works best for you. (We typically have scheduled Monday morning pick-up games in Wayland and Wednesday twilight pick-up games on our Ashland field.) To register and pay the $25 fee to become an EMASS Associate Member , please click here.
