In response to the national emergency caused by the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus), Texas Softball Hall of Fame has REOPENED leagues. This decision comes in compliance with Government, USA Softball association guidelines, and the exercise of sensible precautions by our leadership team.

Future decisions regarding plans for the 2020 game schedules will be posted on the website, www.txsoftballhalloffame.com. Many individuals and teams already have expressed a strong desire to play again. We will continue to monitor ongoing events, undertake precautions, and encourage all softball participants to do likewise. We are still learning more about this virus and the challenges that will be coming as we rise up to defeat it.

While many people will experience only mild symptoms, about 80 percent will recover without needing special treatment. Likewise, about one in six will likely become seriously ill. Older participants and those who have serious chronic medical conditions are at a high risk of developing severe symptoms or death.

It is currently the belief that a person may develop recognizable symptoms anytime from 2-14 days after being exposed to the virus. The most common symptoms are:

• Fever
• Fatigue
• Cough
• Shortness of breath

COVID 19 Guidelines and Policy for 2020

PLAYERS, SPECTATORS, OR UMPIRES MAY NOT ENTER THE BALLPARKS IF:

1. You have been diagnosed with Covid 19.

2. You have symptoms of Covid 19.

3. You have been in close contact with a person who has or is suspected to have Covid 19.

WHILE PARTICIPATING IN SOFTBALL GAME ACTIVITIES:

1. Masks are optional and allowed, but they are not required. 

2. Sanitation supplies are the responsibility of each individual and are encouraged.  Managers may provide this for his team, if he thinks there is a need to do so.

3, Distancing practices of six feet will be realistically utilized in dugouts and bleachers.

4. Avoiding touching your face is a highly recommended practice.

5. Players should provide their own equipment. Sharing bats or gloves is not a safe practice. Using only your own equipment minimizes the risk of contagiousness. 

6. Handshakes, high fives, or other kinds of voluntary touching are not wise or allowed. Please minimize physical contact until notified by the League authorities to engage in those behaviors.

7. Postgame handshakes, slaps, or contact between teams is suspended in 2020.  

8. After game contact in the parking lots should only be done with an abundance of caution and is not recommended. Please keep yourself and others safe.

9. If you think or feel you are too uncomfortable to participate, then please do not come to the ballpark.

10. The Director, Umpires, and Managers all appreciate the cooperation of everyone. Let’s all work with one another so we may continue to play this game we love.

 

IN 2021 DOGS ARE ALLOWED IN THE PARK, except Pit Bulls and Doberman breeds. "Who let the dogs in? Ralph did."  

In 2020 all participants must sign the proper form before playing. 
THE FORMS ARE FOUND HERE:
Ground Rules & Announcements page

In 2020 all participants banned by Houston Sportsplex are also  immediately and automatically banned by Texas Softball Hall of Fame at any and all locations where we do business and are subject to the same consequences, including trespassing charges.

Team insurance is available through the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation (TAAF) and the Amateur Softball Association (USA) and that such insurance coverage is recommended by Texas Softball Hall of Fame for the protection of participants in the program.

USA Insurance Program by Bollinger

Banned Bats are the 1. Miken Ultra, except 2013 , 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, or 2021 with a stamp. 2. Miken Ultra II. 3. All Titanium bats 4. On Tuesday all other bats 1.21 for seniors 50 years or older are allowed, if the bat is marked with the tape authorized by the director or the director's representative. 5. All bats 1.20 and below must have an Approved Association designation on them. Example: ASA, ISA, NSA, USSSA,USA. 6. No player, man or women, will be allowed to swing a No Association designated bat or a Senior Softball designated bat. Use of a bat with graphics not applied by the manufacturer will be the use of an altered bat and subject to the consequences under the rulings of Texas Softball Hall of Fame.

Neither men or women may not hit with any banned bats. The consequence of entering the batters box with any of these bats is ejection of the bat and the batter is called out. Also, if the bat is used, the batter is out, a dead ball is declared, and all base runners return to their bases. Ejection of the batter from the game is required, if in the judgment of the umpire, he or she argues excessively or comes to the plate a second time with a banned bat. Additional suspensions or consequences may be added by the Director. Safety is more important than winning and cheating by using any illegal, altered, or banned equipment is unsportsmanlike and unacceptable. All Texas Softball Hall Of Fame events play on the Recreational level and not the Championship level of play.

It is recommended that pitchers or other defenders wear shin guards or helmets if they feel the need to do so. Face masks are allowed for the pitchers. They are not mandatory, but are recommended. It is also recommended for each participant to carry a waterproof container or baggie for storing electronic devices in a way that protects them from rain. 

The 2020 pitching rules LISTED BELOW are designed to give some protection to the pitchers, are in effect.

1. The height limit on a pitch is 10 feet. 2. The pitcher may deliver a pitch from up to 6 feet behind the rubber. 3. Any line drive which hits the pitcher or in the judgment of the umpire the pitcher uses his glove as a shield to protect himself from a ball that would hit him, is a dead ball, batter is out, and no runners may advance. As a clarification, this means that any ball hit close to, near, or nearby, the pitcher is always a live ball and never an out, even if he steps out of the way.  4. If a hard hit ball hits the ground or the pitching plate before hitting the pitcher or his glove used as a shield, it is a dead ball, batter is out. 5. When a player comes out of the game because of a batted ball, the bat may also be confiscated by the umpires, the Director, or the Director’s representative for testing purposes. Failure to surrender the bat when requested to do so will immediately disqualify the player from eligibility to participate and may cause a forfeit of any win for his or her team.
