Men will play Tuesdays and Thursdays starting May 21. Women will play Mondays and Wednesdays beginning May 20. Players must be age 18 or older. Each 14-game regular season will be followed by a postseason tournament for all teams.
Teams will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Each manager must submit a completed registration form, a $400 entry fee and a $92 refundable forfeit bond to the recreation office. Checks or money orders must be made payable to the City of Oneonta. Cash will not be accepted.
Each team will pay its umpire $23 before each game. The forfeit bond will be used to pay an umpire if a team fails to show up for a scheduled game. Forfeit bond balances will be refunded at the end of the season.
