The GCSS is planning a Round Robin Tournament after the GCSS Championship Series is completed. The details of this tourney are below, and I also sent an email to all GCSS members. The managers can provide this info to the players who do not use email.
FORMAT: For the Round
Robin, we will use the same (or similar) four teams that played together
at the Crushers Stadium for our exhibition games last month. Additional
players will be added to a team when I know everyone who will be playing
in the Round Robin. Each team will play a total of four games (two doubleheaders),
using the same Volunteer Park fields and game times as during the season;
game one will start at 10:00 am. I will send out the actual game schedules
prior to the start of the Round Robin Tourney.
Announcement Date: 11 August 2017
We have scheduled
our final social event of the 2017 season. The 2017 "Closing Day

Snow Road in Parma on Tuesday, August 22nd immediately following our
Round Robin games. The league will provide members with Burgers and
Brats and two sides, with service starting at about 1:15 pm. Players

Temporary rule change information:
To all GCSS Members,
May 26, 2017
To: GCSS Managers and Board Members
As a result of confusion regarding foaters, as Commissioner I am exercising GCSS Rule 1G, which states: Additonal rules may be adopted by the Commissioner during the season as needed. This rule is to clarify where foaters can play and bat in the line-up and will take effect immediately for the remainder of the 2017 season. The membership will discuss and vote on this issue during the October membership meetng if required. Nothing in the GCSS Bylaws and Playing Rules for the 2017 Season addresses this situaton. Please see the rule additon below which will be referred to as “Rule TEMP 4K – Battng order and felding positons for foaters”.
RULE ADDITION FOR THE 2017 GREATER CLEVELAND SENIOR SOFTBALL LEAGUE
SUBJECT: Rule - TEMP 4K - BATTING ORDER AND FIELDING POSITIONS FOR FLOATERS
The scenarios below defne the battng order positon for foaters added to GCSS teams. A foater can play any felding positon during the game(s) for all of the scenarios below.
Scenario “A”: Floater added to a team at the start of the frst game of a double header.
- A foater that is added to a team at the start of the frst game of a double header can be inserted into the battng order at any positon. If the floater remains on the same team for the second game his battng order positon will not change.
Scenario “B”: Floater(s) moved to a different team for the second game of the double header or only plays in the second game.
- Floater(s) that are moved from “Team A” to “Team B” or only play in the second game will be inserted into the battng order immediately afer the original last batter in the line-up from the first game. This is true regardless of where the battng order starts for the second game (i.e. If the original last batter in the line-up is the leadoff hitter for the second game the next batter will be the foater(s) just added to the team).
