New in 2019, our league will allow teams to make adjustments to their roster after the Mid-Season Classic roster submission deadline. The breakdown of the criteria is listed below and in Section 5 of the St. Thomas Slo-Pitch Coed League Rules. This rule is meant to help teams maintain an adequate roster when unforeseeable circumstances arise. These circumstances include significant injury or pregnancy. These substitutions are not meant to accommodate for player absence related to vacation or other circumstances not outlined in Section 5.
The required forms can be found in the Forms section on our website.
For further clarification, please contact a member of the League Executive.
