woman (women) on men's team

Given the outcomes (especially relating to high school athletics) of
lawsuits re: female(s) playing on men's teams, is there any ASA rule
prohibiting such an action. I ask the question for this reason:
We are about to start the "D" *** corporate fall season and a woman came
out to shag some balls with us at a practice, just for fun. I was
incredibly surprised to see that she has as good a glove/bat/arm as many
of the men on the team, not all, but many. She just moved to the area and
has not found a good women's team to play on, yet. We would like to
petition our city PARD director to install her on our roster. Is he
obligated to accept her, so long as said player accepts any inherent
dangers or difficulties she may face?

Chris,

I'm not sure what the exact ASA ruling is, but my women's slowpitch team
played in men's "D" division for city for 2 summers. (I am assuming this
is a slowpitch team--there might be different rulings for a fastpitch
team).  This was done in Waco, TX (the very heart of ASA)--surely it can
be done anywhere!  Good Luck!

Same type of division/league in San Francisco.  They were allowed.
