CANCELED DUE TO EXPECTED POOR WEATHER: AMERICAN DIVISION SHOWCASE -- WAYLAND, NOVEMBER 1ST @12:00 PM

Saturday, November 1st, beginning at 12:00 PM on the Wayland Corner Field, two selected teams of talented EMASS American Division ballplayers will be playing ball for the "love of the game," as well as to showcase their skills for friends, family, potential 2015 recruits, and the local media. With the minimum age for the American Division (the only EMASS Division) dropping in 2015 from 55- to 50-years-old, EMASS is using this game to get the word out to potential 2015 EMASS rookies directly, and-or through the press. EMASS strongly desires to have six competitive teams in the American Division in 2015, an increase of two full teams worth of talented ballplayers.

NEW EMASS POLICY: MEDICAL ISSUES AT EMASS EVENTS

EMASS is concerned for its members' well-being and desires to do what's proper in the event of a medical issue occurring at the playing field. As a first result, EMASS has created, with the support of three current EMASS members who were or are in the medical profession, a document describing how medical incidents are to be handled at the ball fields. That is the primary goal of this new policy, which is now available from the EMASS Website at:

http://www.emass-seniorsoftball.com/uploads/board_Emergency_Policy.pdf

Topics in the policy include:

-- Who's Charged with deciding to call 9-1-1?
-- When should 9-1-1 ALWAYS BE CALLED?
-- Or, if a trip to a local emergency room from any of the EMASS fields is the prudent thing to do, the policy provides addresses, phone numbers, and directions to the nearest local hospital.

A copy of this three-page policy has also been placed in each large plastic equipment box (orange folder) at each playing field for quick access.
