The Annual AV SOFTBALL "Toys for the Needy" Tournament will be held this Saturday, December 15, at Chino Hills Community Park.

This event is, of course, more than just a tournament.  Each player is required to bring at least one, unwrapped toy as a dontation to one of AV's Al Acosta's favorite charity events.  The toys you bring will be distributed to kids who usually don't receive any toys due to circumstances beyond their control.   The toys you bring can mean everything in the world to these kids.

We invite everyone to come out for a day of great softball and a day of giving to kids who need to witness what the Christmas spirit is all about.

From everyone at AV SOFTBALL, a very Merry Christmas to each of you and your families.  We'll see you this Saturday in Chino Hills.

To enter, call AV SOFTBALL today.     See our flyer for this tournament HERE.

  "Toys for the Needy"


*each player must bring at least one unwrapped toy for kids



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 2018

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.
