The Amsterdam Men's Recreational Softball League is a fun, yet competitive league. Games are held at the 4 diamonds fields near the Wilbur H. Lynch Middle School, for more information contact the Recreation Director.
There are 10 teams in the league. Teams will play each other twice for a total of 18 games. Everyone will make the playoffs. Please submit rosters so we can post them on the website. Please see links below for all rules and instructions to submit scores & game highlights to The Recorder.
The EH can now enter the game for any position player at any time. He is basically the same as any other position player.
Players must be present at eight games to participate in playoffs.
All teams will receive line-up cards that must be presented to the umpire and opposing coach before every game. Only players that are present can be on card. The umpire and opposing coach will verify your game roster and sign card. The umpire will keep the cards. This will ensure players were at eight games and may participate in playoff games.
The new deadline to add additional players to your team is June 30th.
If you have any questions please call Rob Spagnola at 841-4328.See Complete Rules
