Does anyone know where I can get a list showing which Universities/Colleges
belong to NCAA and which belong to NAIA. I would also like to have it
broken down by division.

If anyone knows of a school that is not listed, I will be glad to add it
if they will let me know. Currently I have the policy that only the
"offical" sites are listed.

Has anyone heard that the NCAA will come out with their own rulebook for
1997? I have not seen a copy of the book as of yet and at our college
umpire clinic in So. California, Jack Aten (our Assignor) made no mention
of any NCAA specific rules. In previous years, we have used ASA rules with
the college modifications listed in the appropriate section of the ASA
rulebook. Comments or updated info. anyone?

The NCAA could have saved itself a lot of time and money by making a rule
book with one sentence in it:
"The NCAA recognizes the Amateur Softball Association as the National
Governing Body and shall use ASA rules."
The NCAA rule book will become available in early January! Games
begin in February!
How will umpires be made aware of the new rulebook?
Will there be some kind of certification process?
Is there some reason there has not been a 6-18 month period
between the publishing of a new rulebook and its first use in order to
ensure a smooth transition?
If the rules are virtually identical to the ASA with NCAA
modification rulebook, which would be the only reason a phase-in period
would be unnecessary, then why did we need to go through this in the first

There is a new rulebook for NCAA's Softball in 1997. I (Mike) called the
a few weeks ago and spoke to (notes not at hand) who told me that the
new rulebook is to be published mid-Dec (that's today :-) ). I sent a
letter and check to:
P.O. Box 7347
Overland Park, Kansas 66207-0347
Publication: Women's Softball Rules ($4, December, SR 97)
They haven't sent the check back, and I'm not sure whether they cashed
it yet, either, so can't shed any more light on whether the rulebook is

Note from Debbi- apparantly per Emily Alexander, it has not been let
known by NCAA how or when the rulebooks will be issued to the college
Umpires. It further is not known how rule interpretation questions from
coaches and officials will be addressed in 1997. Perhaps Emily will post
this information to rec.sport.softball and on rec.sport.officiating when
the decision(s) are made.
