How are Standings Determined?
Winning percentage will determine the standings in order from highest (1st seed) to lowest total (last seed). In the event of a tie, head-to-head record will determine standings, followed by head-to-head run differential, followed by runs against (fewest runs against will win the tiebreaker). If there is still a tie, a coin flip will determine standings.
What is Proper Attire for Gameplay?
At all times, all players must be wearing proper shoes (no metal spikes) and if playing in the field, using a glove. All bats must be ASA approved (a ban list will be made available) and laid out prior to the game for the umpire to check.
Is there a Mercy Rule?
Yes, QCSL enforces a 15-run rule. When a team wins by the 15 run rule (home team up by 15 after 4 ½ innings or away team up by 15 after 5 innings) the first fifteen runs will count towards the run differential.
Where can I see the Rules for QCSL?
A full list of rules can be found in the QCSL Constitution. The League encourages all players, non-players, coaches, and scorekeepers to be familiar with the Constitution.
For additional gameplay rules, QCSL adheres to the standards set by the American Softball Association (ASA).
