Have you ever dreamed of playing a seven inning baseball game in an hour and fifteen minutes, on a softball sized field that will also enhance your baseball skills? Well, stop dreaming…now you can! It’s called FastballBSF…Baseball on a Softball Field, and will be coming to your town soon.
The game has attracted the attention of the Amateur Softball Association (ASA). They have included FastballBSF under their banner as the perfect alternative to slow-pitch softball for those who want a more challenging game, and not pitcher-dominated typical with fast-pitch softball. With ASA, the game has an immediate national infrastructure. The ASA umpires association is in place all over the country and will be handling all officiating duties. There is an annual FastballBSF/ASA joint registration/insurance fee of $20/player that provides general liability and up to $250,000 second tier accident medical insurance during each calendar year. This membership/insurance policy is provided through ASA’s premier insurance provider, Bollinger Insurance.
The game features wood bats (Haag Bat Company - national sponsor: www.haagbatco.com) ; a special reduced- injury-Factor (RIF) 9.5” ball; batters start with a 1 and 1 count; adult pitchers pitch from 60 feet; 10 seconds between pitches; 1 minute between innings; two youth and multiple adult age divisions; Father/Son Division; 3 ability divisions (Recreation, Competitive, Elite); no breaking pitches (curves, etc.) are allowed in the Recreation and Competitive levels, but are allowed in the Elite Division.
