ASA/NSA Information

Since in 2005 the City of Greensboro's league play has been sanctioned under the rules of the National Softball Association (NSA).  Since the BAU utilizes facilities and umpires from the City of Greensboro the BAU also be transitioned to a rule set based on the NSA rules.  From time to time important news from the NSA may have an impact on the BAU and this page will provide helpful shortcuts.  However, you should probably familiarize yourself with the NSA at their website.

Additionally, the BAU adopts equipment (bat and ball) standards from the American Softball Association (ASA).
