Also in 2017 there will be only one Men's Slow pitch E State Tournament. No longer will there be a North and South Division.
The State Class E Tourney will be held in Waterville July 14 to 16. The Class D Mens will be the same weekend in Lewiston/Auburn.
Rosters will have to given to district commissioners by June 15th, 2017. Any team that does not follow through on a completing a roster will have to play in the higher division, in this case Class D.
Another change for Class E is bringing back the half inning ending home run. Class E teams will not allowed to hit any over the fence home runs. Any over the fence home run will end that team's at bat for that half inning.
