Rule Changes 

  • Adult Softball Suspensions: Burlington Recreation & Parks has recently suspended two participants in the adult softball program for one and two years, respectively, for violations of equipment rules. Only USA Softball-approved bats are allowed in BRPD league play. This is done is in the interest of player safety. 
  • Hot Bats are Prohibited: USA Softball's rules prohibit hot bats because it can allow people to hit the ball farther, as well as make the ball pass through the infield at speeds that create a risk of serious injury to pitchers and infielders. Our umpires in this situation are to be commended for being alert and observant in the interest of keeping all our participants safe.
  • All Bats Subject to Inspection: In order to help our umpires better do their job, we are also implementing a rule change; it will now be illegal to bring a non-approved or altered bat to the field. Any illegal bat brought to the field will subject the owner to ejection and possibly a one or two-year suspension. Any bats in or around the dugout will be subject to inspection by the umpires. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter of player safety.
