The Wentworth Adult Mixed Slo-Pitch League (WAMSL) was formed to promote an improved slo-pitch game. Both league and tournament play operates in accordance with the bylaws of the city of Hamilton as well as the by-laws and constitution of WAMSL.
There are six (6) divisions in our league, from the very recreational to the slightly competitive. The solid base of returning teams includes many that have been with the league for more than 25 years.
League organizers have been involved with this program for more than 40 years. To ensure fair play for everyone, games are closely monitored.
We also adjust our divisions to keep teams playing at the appropriate level. We offer 6 divisions in our program and they are primarily recreational to an intermediate competitive level of play.
Player safety is always our main concern. As a safety measure, representatives monitor bats that are on the market to ensure that the speed of the ball coming off the bat is safe for our players and program. In addition, the pitcher’s mound has been extended to offer a higher level of safety for the pitchers as well as face & head protection.
The league features a two-to-one ratio in the batting order, meaning that there will be a female player batting after every two male players in the batting order. Rules are specifically set to keep female competitors safe and in the game.
