Per USA Softball's Code the players on the Men's Class A Restricted Player List was determined by a Slow Pitch Committee. A restricted slow pitch player list will be compiled by a USA Softball committee representing slow pitch. The restricted slow pitch players list will be available on USA Softball's website and this list will be updated, modified and/or revised on a regular and continuous basis but will be finalized by August 1 each year for the current year’s National Championship Finals. Players on the USA Softball restricted slow pitch player’s list may only play Class A. Any team that participates may not have more than three (3) players from the USA Softball restricted slow pitch player list. Any appeals regarding this list can be made through the USA Softball National Office to the slow pitch sub-committee. Any appeals regarding this list should be made to the player’s local commissioner who will forward it to the USA Softball National Office for further review by the USA Softball Slow Pitch Restricted Player Committee. Please do this in writing and be sure to include statistics, teams played against, and a reason why you feel you should be removed from the RPL in any appeal.
