MGSL Message regarding the Coronavirus and our Summer Session (updated March 29, 2020)

Our hope and belief is that we will have a softball season this summer !!!  We will do everything possible to may sure our players have a chance to enjoy summer & softball without compromising health or safety.  Currently, we are building flexible plans to adjust to the fluid COVID-19 situation.

At this time, we are extending our registration to Sunday, April 19th, with the hope of getting a full practice season in the month of May. Also having our Opening Weekend on May 30th & 31st, and continuing our normal season in June and July.

We will adjust our schedule with the fluid day-to-day COVID-19 safety guidelines from our health officials. Some of these adjustments may include shortening the May practice down, even to one practice before starting our regular season. We also have plans to be able to start season games on June 1st (that will give us over 2 months to turn the tide on COVID-19 and still enjoy softball this summer).

If we do have to cancel the season, we will give refunds for the player’s registrations, so please continue to signup to play, that way we have time to put the teams together, line up team managers, get team sponsors and get everyone’s uniforms ready for their first game.

Sponsors please continue to fill in the sponsorship forms and pay the sponsorship fee by check. The league will not cash the sponsorship checks unless the season will definitely be going forward.

Everyone stay safe & healthy, and we hope to see you all on the softball fields this summer !


Player Registration is Now Open !   Softball Players & Parents, we welcome you to a fun-filled summer of softball with the Mentor Girls Softball League!  Click on one of the links below to register for this year's softball season. 
A player's age is determined by their age on December 31, 2019 (or the year that the player was born).    Practices start  the first week of May and Opening Day games will be on May 30th & 31st.  We look forward to seeing you on the field!   (Read Below for Details on the Changes for This Year - Note: Our Age Cutoff Date Has Changed.)

Due to the growing popularity of Fastpitch, we split last year's 11U Division into a 10U and 12U Division.  Also, we hope to have enough teams (at least 4 teams) in our Ponytail Slowpitch Division (Ages 10-13) to continue the division.  The league reserves the right modify the divisions based on registrations and field availability.  Please join us for a summer of fun and growing your softball skills !

Changes & Notes for the 2020 Season

1. Opening Weekend will be Saturday May 30th and Sunday May 31st.

2. We have changed the cut-off age date, giving 8 months more of eligibility to stay in a lower division (you can move up one year with parent approval).  We did this to align with the official USSSA and ASA softball age breakdown.  See Age & Division Table.

3. Registration fees moved up $5 for all divisions (except T-Ball, which stayed the same).  Our umpire fees are going up this year - the registration increase will help cover the cost.

4. We are looking into adding numbers to our player uniforms this year.

5. We are currently working with the City and Schools to finalize our field assignments. There will be some nice changes but some challenges especially in the month of May regarding practices.
