TEXAS SOFTBALL HALL OF FAME MISSION STATEMENT and your mission if you choose to accept it, is to lead softball events that promote sportsmanship, to protect the integrity of the game, to provide a caring atmosphere, to enhance the well-being of all people of good will who participate, and to honor connectedness in the softball community. "This is how the heartbeat of Texas softball makes an impact and a positive difference." Ralph Hall

"Our mission has been tested by both time and circumstances. It began as a sacred promise, but has been transformed from great words of hope into a lifestyle of genuinely caring, a disciplined willingness to continually improve, and a commitment to generously give." Ralph Hall

The next Leagues begin on October 5, 2014.

In 2014 all participants must sign the proper roster and waiver form before playing. THE FORMS ARE FOUND HERE: Ground Rules & Announcements page

In 2014 all participants banned by Houston Sportsplex are also  immediately and automatically banned by Texas Softball Hall of Fame at any and all locations where we do business and are subject to the same consequences, including trespassing charges.

Parents or guardians need to watch their children at all times. Coaches and Managers need to inform all their participants, including their spectators, to not bring any roller blades, scooters, skates, remote controlled cars or airplanes, skateboards, or PETS (except guide dogs) to the fields during warm ups or the games. Beginning September 2, 2014 the City of Houston will ban by statute all smoking from its Public Parks, including Cullen Park.

LET'S PLAY BALL! RALPH HALL

Banned Bats are the 1. Miken Ultra, except 2013 or 2014 with a stamp 2. Miken Ultra II, except 2013 or 2014 with a stamp.  3. All Titanium bats 4. All bats over 1.20.  5. All bats  for seniors 50 years or older are not allowed. 6. All bats 1.20 and below must have an Approved Association designation on them. Example: ASA, ISA, NSA, USSSA. 7. No player, man or women, will be allowed to swing a No Association designated bat or a Senior Softball designated bat. Use of a bat with graphics not applied by the manufacturer will be the use of an altered bat and subject to the consequences under the rulings of Texas Softball Hall of Fame.

Neither men or women may not hit with any banned bats. The consequence of entering the batters box with any of these bats is ejection of the bat and the batter is called out. Also, if the bat is used, the batter is out, a dead ball is declared, and all base runners return to their bases. Ejection of the batter from the game is required, if in the judgment of the umpire, he or she argues excessively or comes to the plate a second time with a banned bat. Additional suspensions or consequences may be added by the Director. Safety is more important than winning and cheating by using any illegal, altered, or banned equipment is unsportsmanlike and unacceptable. All Texas Softball Hall Of Fame events play on the Recreational level and not the Championship level of play.

It is recommended that pitchers or other defenders wear shin guards or helmets if they feel the need to do so. Face masks are allowed for the pitchers. They are not mandatory, but are recommended. It is also recommended for each participant to carry a waterproof container or baggie for storing electronic devices in a way that protects them from rain.  

The 2014 pitching rules LISTED BELOW are designed to give some protection to the pitchers, are in effect.

1. The height limit on a pitch is 10 feet. 2. The pitcher may deliver a pitch from up to 6 feet behind the rubber. 3. Any line drive which hits the pitcher or in the judgment of the umpire the pitcher uses his glove as a shield to protect himself from a ball that would hit him, is a dead ball, batter is out, and no runners may advance. As a clarification, this means that any ball hit close to, near, or nearby, the pitcher is always a live ball and never an out, even if he steps out of the way.  4. If a hard hit ball hits the ground or the pitching plate before hitting the pitcher or his glove used as a shield, it is a dead ball, batter is out.  5. When a player comes out of the game because of a batted ball, the bat may also be confiscated by the umpires, the Director, or the Director’s representative for testing purposes. Failure to surrender the bat when requested to do so will immediately disqualify the player from eligibility to participate and may cause a forfeit of any win for his or her team.  No alcohol may be consumed by players or coaches during the games, including on the bench, outside the dugouts, or in the stands. Consequences of ejections will be enforced by the umpires, the Director’s representative, or the Director. 6. Alcohol may be responsibly consumed before, between, and after the games.
