2019 Rulebook & Policy Changes

Updated November 12, 2018
Rule 2 Sec. 12 Equipment: Slo-Pitch National reserves the right to disapprove any equipment due to failure to meet either NOCSAE (National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment) or CSA (Canadian Safety Standards) safety standards.
Rule 5 Sec 3C Note: Should an 11th player be discovered defensively, in divisions other than Men’s +65 and Women’s Seniors, the coach is ejected, and a defensive player is removed from the field.
Effect: Should the discovery occur after a defensive play but prior to the next pitch, the offensive team will have the option of taking the result of the play or having the batter go back up to bat and assume the ball and strike count he had prior to the hit.
Rule 8 Sec. 5C If a fair batted ball strikes a baserunner while he is off his base, and before passing an infielder other than the pitcher, the ball is immediately dead and the batter is entitled to first base without liability to be put out. EFFECT: BASE RUNNER IS OUT.
National Championship Division changes for 2020:
Starting in 2020 Mens +35 shall have 3 National Championship Divisions - Mens +35Comp, Mens +35IM and Mens +35E.

SPN 175 Foot Rule for Ontario Only


All outfielders (min 4 outfielders - no rover) must be positioned 175 feet or more, and cannot throw the batter-baserunner out at first base; - "A defensive line consisting of an arc 175 feet from home plate shall be used. No outfielder (minimum of four) is allowed in front of the line until the ball is hit.
If this is violated, the offence has the option of taking the result of the play or an award of one base to
the batter and all runners. No outfielder may make a force out on the batter-baserunner at first base."
This rule will be only for Ontario Provincial Championships and leagues and tournaments
that decide to adopt it. This rule is NOT in effect for RSPA Coed Slo-Pitch.
