The financial report was approved.

Fall Season begins August 9th or 16th, according to field availability.
E. Due to some circumstances beyond our control the CSSA Awards banquet has changed dates. The banquet will now be held on Tuesday, November 16, 2021
(9 days prior to Thanksgiving).
F. Bat inspections for compression/pressure as well as labels have worked well. Some bats were found to be illegal and removed from play. Testing/inspections will continue into the fall season. Rattling of bats will not be disqualified from use if the other tests pass.
G. Uniforms are being designed for the 2022 season so most players will have new shirts. The shirts will be supplied by the CSSA using player fees. They will be of better quality, colors, numbers, sponsor names, etc. If a player wishes to have their name printed on the back they will need to pay an additional $20 on their league fee. However, that player will be able to keep their shirt when they leave the league..
H. Rule book completion, originally worked on by Ray McClure, will be conducted over the next few months and ready for the 2022 season. The BOD members working on the completion will be Mike Parson, John Humeston & Ray DeLuca.
