League Rules and Regulations
PDF copy of the official Waltham Recreation Co-ED Softball League rules and regulation as of June 25, 2013. The only major change to the rules over last season is the addition of rule 4 under "Rainouts". (30KB)

Rule Clarifications:
  • There is no rule against sliding. This was confirmed with the commissioner. Contact with the fielder is to be avoided.

Recent Rule Changes:
  • Entry fee increased from $150 to $200.

  • The following rule was added under "Rainouts".

    "Make-up games will be rescheduled by the Recreation Department, and will not be scheduled for the same week as the rain-out."

  • Though not a rule change, the commissioner is placing extra emphasis this season on the minimum number of women players required to play a game.

    Remember that the rules state that there must be three women on the defensive field every inning. Also, three women must be included in the first ten batters. In fairness to the teams who have stayed true to the coed concept, please do not write your own rules if you are not able to satisfy these requirements. Any thing less than three women batting and fielding is considered a forfeit.
