The following is an important message from the league: Captains and players, we had 2 instances of players throwing bats in anger last night, one in which a player on deck was nearly hit with the bat. The umpire gave each player a warning, but no warnings will be given going forward. As stated in the rules: "Throwing a bat or starting a physical altercation will result in ejection without prior warning." This is co-ed softball, not the World Series.
Just a reminder on the walk rule as it reads in the rulebook: "-In the event that a batter (male or female) walks without having at least 1 strike thrown, if a female batter follows next she will be given the option of taking 1st base automatically. This is only the case when the 2nd batter is a female." Notice the female is "given the option" of taking a walk. Meaning, if she steps in the batter's box and takes a pitch, that will be considered choosing to bat. Just want to clarify going forward.
