RSPA 2020 Info - What's New for 2020

Updated August 7, 2020
RSPA League fees 2020: We reduced league fees as much as possible and offer delayed payments in order to ease the financial burden on the team reps and the players. Reduced the league fee to $750 for the season, but have to cut corners everywhere because insurance is for the year and it is actually up this year and SPN fee is for the year. Parks will be more as we will be using more lit parks in order to get as many games as possible. We are paying umpires a Covid premium. Cut costs: use more used balls, all teams do not make playoffs, cut back on awards, etc. League fees $750, All deposits by e-transfer.
Deposit $200 due Wednesday, August 5 • Payment $200 Friday, August 14 • Payment $350 Monday, August 24.

Face masks are not mandatory but are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for the batter, baserunner, catcher and umpire.
Teams will use their own ball for each half of the inning (so that only one team handles the ball).
