Welcome to the Home of USA Softball of Illinois

Commissioners Introduction and Welcome

The USA Softball of Illinois organization looks forward to another great softball season. We again work under the auspices of the National USA Softball organization which is located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. In addition to hosting Executive Director Craig Cress and his staff, the Oklahoma site is also home to the USA Softball National Hall of Fame.

Our state association follows the Constitution, Code and Bylaws of USA Softball of Illinois.  The Official Guide and Rule Book of the National organization includes all bylaws and rules.  If any direct rule conflict exists between state and national, the national rules take precedence. 

Our Illinois organization had a good year in 2018.  Even though our total number of teams declined, Illinois was again in the top twenty of the approximately 70 associations in overall registrations of JO and adult teams and umpires.

Our organization promises another exciting summer of USA/ASA softball.   You will find a complete listing of our 2019 tournaments in our brochure and on this website. Also included is a list of this years individual and team Hall of Fame inductees. Finally, a complete listing of all our tournaments is found along with a list of all past state champions and our special individual award recipients.

The brochure and website also includes other important information including our advertisers.  We urge you to patronize them as they contribute greatly to our sport.

Good luck to all teams, players, umpires and fans.  May you have a great season of USA Softball of Illinois competition.  See you at the ball park this summer!

Don Brewer, State Commissioner

To: Mens Slopitch Managers:  It is time to start signing up your slopitch team for the fast-approaching Class D and E slopitch state tournaments in Decatur.   I have had several managers contact me direct from all over the state and so has Lloyd Nelson.  Generally, they want to know the dates, entry fee, classifications and deadline for entering.  

Here is the important information you need.

1.  Tournament dates are July 19-21.
2.  Entry fee is $340.  Deadline for fee payment is July 12.
3.  Our most recent database is now posted on our website.  There have been a few changes since this last posting and those will be sent to you when we believe all corrections have been approved. Will probably be no more than a dozen changes.
4.  In addition to the entry fee, teams should fill out and submit to you the official  entry form.  It is attached to this mailing.  After you complete the form, Send it and your entry fee to your local commissioner or to me or Lloyd Nelson (Addresses listed below.) ASAP.

6. A new twist to the rules this year will allow D and E teams to enter the C tournament even if they played in the D or E Tournament in Decatur in July.  Furthermore, D and E teams that participate in Class C will be allowed to drop back to D or E in 2020 unless they win the C or finish as the C runner-up this year.

We will send you an ASA roster as soon as you forward your entry fee and entry form.
