GCSS 2018 GOLF OUTING AT VALLEAIRE GOLF COURSE - WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27TH

The GCSS will hold this years first golf outing at Valleaire Golf Course in Hinckley on Wednesday, June 27th. Following the golf outing everyone will meet at Divot's Sports Bar in North Royalton (Divot's is about five minutes from the golf course) to discuss all those shots that could have been. The golf outing will start at 10:00 am (same as our game time) and will be a four man scramble format. The cost for 18 holes with a cart will be $20 to $25 per person. Bob Zukerman has contacted the golf course and reserved the date. We need to give them a number of players that will be joining the scramble so enough tee times can be reserved for our group. You can get a foursome together (bring a friend if you like) or just sign up to play, individuals will be paired up the day of the outing.

More detailed information will be given after we have a closer count on how many guys will be playing.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON PLAYING IN THE GOLF OUTING PLEASE E-MAIL ME OR LET BOB ZUKERMAN OR MYSELF KNOW AT OUR SOFTBALL GAMES.

Tony Chihill, GCSS Commissioner

GCSS TO PLAY EXHIBITION GAMES AGAIN THIS SEASON AT SPRENGER HEALTH CARE STADIUM IN AVON.

We have been in contact with the Lake Erie Crushers regarding the Cleveland Legends Charity Game scheduled for this year. The Crushers Charity game will be played on Saturday, June 23rd at 7:05 pm at the Crushers Minor League Baseball Stadium in Avon, Ohio. The Legends game is a charity softball game that features former Cleveland athletes like Austin Carr, Kevin Mack, Mark Price and other local radio/TV personalities.

The GCSS has already committed to support them in this charity event by supplying bats and balls to use during the charity game. In return the Crushers will give us the use of the stadium field to play senior softball exhibition games on one weekday afternoon. The date that we will play our exhibition games will be Wednesday, July 18th. We have the use of the field from about 10:00am until 2:00pm.

Save this date so you can play at the Crushers Minor League Stadium. Last year was a success and everyone enjoyed themselves. We will also plan a post game get together at Mulligan's Pub & Grille that is minutes from the stadium. More information will be provided as we approach the game date. Players can let their managers or Tony Chihill know if they plan on playing at the stadium so we can decide on a game day format.

Tony Chihill, GCSS Commissioner

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”.

Tony ChihillGCSS,
Commissioner

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).
