GCSS Members:

Congratulations to Sports Focus the First Half Champs with their sweep of St Vincent today. Post & Beam swept their double header with Winar for second place.

John Seaman remained the home run leader with his 4th and Doug Siloy hit his 1st.

Don't forget to sign up for the GCSS Golf outing July 20th, contact Bob Zuckerman.

The details for GCSS scheduled double headers to be played at the Lake Erie Crushers Stadium in Avon will be forwarded from Commissioner Tony Chihill as they become available. Family & friends will be welcomed to root for their favorite teams.

Remember to support Cleats on Tuesday and Post & Beam Thursday after the games. There were were only eight members at Post & Beam today, this is disappointing support for a sponsor of many years.

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).
