Been some questions about picking up players from othe states for USA Softball of South Dakota State Tournaments.
It is our decision in South Dakota that all Pickup Players for state must play on a registered USA Softball of South Dakota team. No borrowed (pickup players) from teams from other states for state tournament play.
By code you are allowed to borrow from any USA Softball registered team or player from anywhere with commissioner approval for National Tournament Play.
Fast Pitch, Modified Pitch, and Slow Pitch Pickup Players.
A player may be picked up at any level of championship play prior to the National Championship Final as follows:
01. If players are picked up prior to the local association championship, they must be governed by their local association rules.
02. If players are picked up after their local association championship, the pick up player(s) must be governed by Article 303 of this Code.
The USA Softball of South Dakota decision is that borrowed players must come from South Dakota registered teams.
