2019 Board Commissioner

June 1, 2019 2019 Season League Leadership News


The QCSL board would like to thank those who applied for the mid-season opening of the Commissioner position.  After a review and consideration of all candidates, the board unanimously selected Scott Ruppert as Commissioner for the remainder of the 2019 season.

Scott most recently served as QCSL’s Assistant Commissioner during the 2017-2018 seasons.  Scott’s many years as a member in the league as a team manager and player made him an ideal fit for stepping in for the remainder of the 2019 season.

We encourage all who applied to submit their names for the various open positions that will be subject to league-wide vote at the end of the 2019 season.


The Queen City Softball League has opened an application period for Commissioner of the 2019 QCSL Executive Board.

The league board will begin taking applications from interested members to fill the open position for the 2019 season. Because this position has been vacated mid-term, this position is a ONE YEAR appointment.
