Slo-Pitch Ontario Association (known as “SPO”) was formed in November of 1982 in an effort to
create more awareness of the sport of slo-pitch and to better communicate with its participants
throughout Ontario. In 1992, SPO became a member of Softball Ontario and affiliated with Softball
Canada, the officially recognized slo-pitch/softball organizations. Slo-Pitch Ontario has one of the
largest provincial memberships in Canada. Slo-pitch softball is one of the fastest growing adult
team sports in North America. Over 2.5 million Canadians play this recreational grassroots game

We are going to implement a new rule for 6.30 games only. If teams have
8 or 9 players to start the 6.30 game only they can list extra players in
batting order and those players are available to play and bat when they
arrive at game up to the end of the 5th inning or 7.00 pm which ever
occurs first.There will be no automatic outs in the vacant spots. This is
only applicable in the 6.30 game. Short handed rule as stated in League
rules will be in effect for all other games times.If players arrive after 5th
inning or 7.00 pm they can play but must be entered as a substitute.
Coed must still have a minimum of 4 females to start the game.
As well, I still need to get rules updated on website as there have been
some updates and changes and I will let you know when they are posted
Remember, that while we all have that competitive fire inside us,
this is still a recreational sport and we want
everyone to play safe and have fun.
Have a great season!
