Classification issues. Team classification
guidelines still are in effect where teams that
finish 1st or 2nd in MASA Fast Pitch state
finals in class C, D or E or place in the top 4
of an ASA national tournament, they must move up
a class the next year of competition. If 5 or
more players from a move-up roster play together
the following season of competition, they are
also considered an automatic move-up to that
next class as well. If you have questions,
please email Scott at the link above.
