Acton Adult Softball League

NARA cancelled too

Now both Elm and NARA have been checked - both fields are under water and all games on Tuesday are cancelled. I will work with captains to find reschedule dates.

Elm Games Cancelled - Tuesday

Too wet at Elm, based on pictures and the field crew walking the field. We can't get it ready for games tonight.

The field crew is headed to NARA to check that out - I should have information around 5:00.

season schedule

Welcome to AASL's 18th Season!

In 2017, the Acton Adult Softball League (AASL) will be active for its 18th season with 16 teams competing in the 15-week regular season and post-season playoffs. The league plays in Acton from late April to late August. We play regular season games Sunday afternoons and Monday through Thursday evenings at two fields in Acton. We maintain a recreational/semi-competitive coed league - if you expect to play in an ultra competitive environment, please choose another league. All players are at least 21 years old with a few players over 65 years old, and two-thirds live in Acton though that is not a requirement to play in the league.

Age Requirement

At the 2016 Captains meeting, the AASL Board and captains agreed to lower the minimum age requirement for women playing in AASL to "post high school" age. Are you out of high school? Home for the summer from college? Register for AASL and we'll try to place you on a team, or include you as a sub! Men still have to be 21 years old or older, and if you turn 21 during the season you can join at that time!

Registration

Registration IS OPEN! Click here to register. Returning teams, new teams, players returning to their team, or players in search of a new team can register. Preference is given to returning teams within a specified grace period, followed by new teams in the order they register, then individual players where teams need more participants.

Individuals who are not affiliated with a team can sign up as free agents to be put on a Wait List/Sub List and might be able to join a team roster at the beginning or during the season, or might get a one-game callup to fill a roster on a specific day. In 2016 we were unable to place all individuals who registered. Unfortunately, our limited field space limits the number of teams we can have in the league while maintaining a reasonable schedule.

Rink Rats Win Another Championship!

In 2016, The Rink Rats, in their 15th season in the league, won their 7th championship game! Past champions include Rink Rats (7 championships), Misfits (5), Hackers (1), Colonial Spirits (1), Rockets (1), Westies (1), and Media Bridge (1) as league champions.
