Softball sign-ups slated for Saturday

AMSTERDAM — Amsterdam Girls Softball Association will host fall ball registration this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the concession stand at Shuttleworth Park.

All girls in Fulton, Montgomery and surrounding counties are eligible and welcome to play for Amsterdam travel teams.

Fall softball will be played on Sundays. It begins Sept. 10 and runs through Oct. 1. Doubleheaders will be played each Sunday at various locations around the capital district, with each level usually having one home Sunday.

Ages for the 2018 season will be used for fall ball. A player’s age on Jan. 1, 2018 dictates her age level.

For example, a player who turns 13 on Dec. 31 must play at 14U, but a player who turns 13 on Jan. 1, may still play at the 12U level.

Teams are expected at the 10U, 12U, 14U and 17U levels.

The registration fee will be $50 and all players will receive a shirt for the fall season.
