What’s a Spiderz Mega Draft Slow Pitch Softball Tournament? To start, it’s probably the most fun you’ll have playing slow pitch softball all year, that’s what! Simply put, anyone who wants to come out and play softball on April 8-11, 2021 in Panama City Beach, FL; no matter who they play for during the regular season, no matter what class/sanction they play, no matter age (need to be 18+), and no matter sex! We take all of these people, throw their names into a hat, draw random teams, and play ball! When it's over....it's over!
Being part of a Mega Draft allows you to relax a bit and have FUN like the game was meant to be played! 

You'll have no idea how good your team is, or how good the the other teams are. No team is the "Favorite", because every team is an unknown. There are far too many variables and such little time to put it all together, that EVERY TEAM stands a fair chance at winning. 

How quickly can your team gel, put all the pieces of the puzzle together, and put a winning lineup out on the field? That's the trick. The '19 Spiderz Sin City Mega Draft Champions went 0-2 in their play-in games before going undefeated the rest of the tournament! 

Come prepared to play ball, meet some new "like minded" people (let's be honest...we slow pitch players are a rare breed!), HAVE FUN, and enjoy Panama City Beach during Spring Break!

    Home Run Limit - Five (5) Home Runs/Game. All Home Runs over the limit will be considered a Dead Ball Out. Female Home Runs DO COUNT towards total. Hit and Sit, no need to run them out.
    Lineup - Each team will be supplied with a 2-Team Scorebook. A lineup must be presented to the opposing team at the beginning of each game. Each team MUST bat all players. However only (10) will take the field. 1 Female MUST play a defensive position on the field at all times.
    No player may sit out from playing a defensive position more than 7 innings for every 14 innings played unless player should so choose to. Each team will need to monitor this as a whole. Please be respectful and fair to your teammates that also came to play.
    If a player "No Call/No Shows" to a game, the team can elect to have that player immediately removed from the roster and no longer eligible to win any prizes, or participate in any future Spiderz Mega Draft events.
    If a player is "running late", and team agrees to add him/her to the lineup....every time that person comes to bat, and they're not there, that spot will be an out (EACH TIME). If the team starts the game without that person in the lineup, and he/she arrives BEFORE they have batted through the lineup, that player must be added to the end. If the player shows up AFTER they have batted through the lineup, that player is no longer eligible to play in that game, and cannot substitute for another player.
    Pinch Runners - 1 per inning per team (NOT per sex). Runner can be anyone on the team (however if that runner comes up to bat in the lineup before he/she scores or gets out, that runners spot in the lineup will be an automatic out and NO OFFENSIVE EJECTION) . NOTE: A pinch runner may be used twice in the same inning if the person needing the runner gets on again (the pinch runner must also be the same runner used earlier that inning).
    Run Rules - 20 runs After 3 innings, 15 runs after 4 innings, 10 runs after 5 innings

Females CANNOT be thrown out at 1st base from an outfield position (or an assist from an OF position)
    Roster Additions: NO additions will be made to any roster unless tournament director adds them. In the event a player drops before the tournament, the tournament director will fill the empty roster spot with someone who is on the official waiting list.

    Weather: Tournament director reserves all rights to modify any game to a 1-pitch, or eliminate play-in games in the event of time constraints due to Weather. In the event of bad weather or acts of god that are out of our hands that force a tournament cancellation, no refunds will be given as each player will have received a uniform package with a retail value of $239. In addition, if tournament cancellation is announced between the tournament start and just before the finish of play in games, we will host a drawing which will include all players in the tournament and randomly choose names to distribute all prize packages. Once play-in games are completed, tournament director reserves all rights to decide prize distribution in the event of tournament cancellation.
