FAQ’s

Q: Where is Tim?

A: Tim has retired from directing adult softball. Dave Marvin is the new director

Q: Why the late start?

A: We allow Marquette to use our diamonds for their girls’ softball teams. They finish June 4.

Q: Why fewer regular season games?

A: Our costs have gone up due to minimum wage increases. We are starting later, and still want to finish at approximately the same time. We are also promising two games in the tournament. Fewer games gives us more flexibility for make-up games. 

Q:  Why start earlier and have fewer teams per night?  

A:  We want to have fewer games per night to allow more time for teams to come and go and keep their distance.  We want to avoid crowds standing around waiting.
