AV  SOFTBALL  ANNOUNCES

REVISED CHIP  RULES  FOR  2019

SATURDAY,  MARCH 23

  Men's  Qualifier Tournament


AV SOFTBALL's Al Acosta did the right thing.  After announcing the 2018 Player "CHIP" Rules, he listened to ways to tweak it to make it more fair & balanced.  Many players reached out to Al to offer input and, to his credit, Al encouraged the player's comments in reaching a final version for the 2018-2019  Chip Rules.


AV SOFTBVALL will be running D5, D4, D3, D2  & D1 divisions and special tournaments.  Here is the breakdown  on eligibility requirements for players in these tournaments:


World’s

D - Division will be allowed 3-4 Chips depending on Chips
E - Division will be allowed 1-2 Chips depending on Chips
Rec - Division will be allowed 1 Chip depending on Chip

Please make sure to ask about your chip players if they can play, if have not played yet.   
Chip players not allowed to play if rated A, Open, Major.



***  sometimes, a player may be "overrated".  For example, a player may appear on a "C" roster but perhaps that player never actually played for that team or there were other circumstances whereby that player should not be rated a "C".   You MUST CHECK WITH AVBEFORE  THE  DAY OF THE TOURNAMENT  if you have any questions about such players.  AV will then gather more information and make a final determination.

Teams, and specifically Team Managers are expected to know all player eligibility rules and are required to advise AV about the identity of any "chips" in your lineup.   Any failure to properly inform AV of a "chip" could result in a team forfeiting games, their tournament fee and/or any prizes.  

Please contact Al Acosta at Al@AVsoftball.com with any questions on the 2018  AV SOFTBALL Chip Rules.    Thanks again for playing AV SOFTBALL and we look forward to a great & competitive 2018.
