rule change information:
To all GCSS Members,
April 5, 2019
To: GCSS Managers and Board Members
As a result of confusion regarding replacement players (floaters), as
Commissioner I am exercising GCSS Rule 1G, which states:
"Additional rules may be adopted by the Commissioner during the
season as needed." This rule is to clarify where floaters
can play and bat in the line-up. It took effect in 2017 & will continue
for the remainder of the 2019 season. The membership will discuss
and vote on this issue during the October 2019 membership meeting if
required. Nothing in the GCSS Bylaws and Playing Rules for the 2019
Season addresses this situation. Please see the rule addition below
which will be referred to as “Rule TEMP 4M – Batting order
and fielding positions for floaters”.
Tony Chihill GCSS,
RULE ADDITION FOR THE 2019 GREATER CLEVELAND SENIOR SOFTBALL
SUBJECT: Rule - TEMP 4M - BATTING ORDER AND FIELDING POSITIONS FOR FLOATERS
The scenarios below define the batting order position for floaters added
to GCSS teams. A floater can play any fielding position during the game(s)
for all of the scenarios below.
Scenario “A”: Floater added to a team at the start
of the first game of a double header.
- A floater that is added to a team at the start of the first game of
a double header can be inserted into the batting order at any position.
If the floater remains on the same team for the second game his batting
order position 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
- Floater(s) that are moved from “Team A” to “Team
B” or only play in the second game will be inserted into the batting
order immediately after the original last batter in the line-up from
the first game. This is true regardless of where the batting 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
floater(s) just added to the team).
