Softball Slide Catch

SPRD following divisions in Softball:

  • Men's B: All players in this division have played college or high school softball/baseball. This division is typically for competitive traveling teams.
  • Men's C / Coed C: Competitive. Typically players who played varsity softball/baseball in high school or college or have several years of experience performing recreational softball. Most players can hit home runs, have speed on the bases and out in the field. Errors are limited on defense, usually few overthrows or missed plays, such as a pop fly not being caught. Base runners are very aggressive and persistent on the bases. Players are fundamentally sound on both defense and offense.
  • Men's D / Coed D: Semi-Competitive Division. Our most popular league. Players in this league have some experience playing at the high-school level or have experience playing recreational softball. Have a few players that can hit home runs, have semi-aggressive defense and baserunners, but not all players have a high skill level. Looking to play for the enjoyment of the game.
  • Coed E: Recreational/Beginner Division. Players are still learning the game and have little experience in softball/baseball, but play for the enjoyment of the game. These teams are rarely aggressive on the base paths and usually the best league for those teams that will be playing in their 1st season. This division will use an alternative home-plate.
  • Women's: Only one division with all levels.
  • Masters 50's Senior Softball: Men or women becoming 50 this year, and up.
  • Masters 60's Senior Softball: Men or women becoming 60 this year, and up.
