PCSSA 2019 - 2020 Rule Summary/Highlights


PCSSA Rules have been revised to better align with Senior Softball – USA (SSUSA).  This is not a complete summary of the rules which apply to Senior Softball. It is your responsibility to read all the rules which govern our play.  You may find a complete copy of the SSUSA rule book by clicking on the link below.  Additionally, those rules specific to our league may be found on the QuickScores website.

  • A runner occupying first base may start from either the white or orange base when play resumes…treat as 1 big bag.
