ADULT SOFTBALL MAKEUP GAMES-CALL YOUR MANAGERS FOR SPECIFICS
There have been various rained out games this summer. The makeup letters have gone out to the managers/umpires. If your manager has not contacted you regarding your specific makeup times, please call your manager. In many instances where there are multiple makeups, we have included copies for each player for the managers/players convenience. We are sorry for the inconvenience-we can not control "Mother Nature". Special Note: As specified in the makeup letters and on your original game schedules due to the leagues running late into August these makeup's will not be made up if canceled again due to rain.
