Congrats To Our Postseason Champions
Coed Season Set To Begin August 13th
Ten coed teams are registered to play a 7 week, 12 game season on Wednesday nights beginning August 13th. The first three weeks on the schedule will feature all ten teams in action against two different opponents each week (which will require a third game on two diamonds) and the final four weeks will be doubleheaders with at least two teams on a bye in each of those weeks.

Rosters Available To Download At NDASA.org
Rather than hand out rosters at the recent Winter Meeting, we are encouraging all managers to download a PDF version from the state association's web site. The online form may be printed and filled out in pen, although the state association would like for managers to type in all necessary information for the sake of legibility. Regardless, please be sure to print out both sides (one one page would be preferred, but not required). Ensure all players sign the roster before turning it in to a board member or our league representative. The roster form can be downloaded from the Forms page of NDASA.org.
Player Classification Concerns
ASA's National Database Classifies Dozens Of Local Players
With the national and state associations attempting to shift to online registration of teams, efforts have been made to establish a database of players. At the higher classifications, that process took a large step forward with the announcement that the ASA's national player database had finally been completed and published. While the concept has merit, there will undoubtedly be issues early in the process.
Initial review of the database has resulted in concerns that many players are classified inaccurately, stemming largely from outdated data. Since that database will inevitably be used to classify teams locally under recently established guidelines, we strongly encourage all players to search for their name amongst the database and, if necessary, appeal their current classification (using the Appeal button at the top right corner of their player page). For your convenience, we have tried to extract from the database a list of local players that have been included.
