Softball/e-legal slowpitch softball glove


I painted the (one inch) tips of the GLOVE fingers florescent pink. I was told my glove was e-legal and I couldn't use my glove.  please tell me if its legal or not?  I play in the NATIONAL LEAUGE SLOW-PITCH SOFT GAME senior  Arizona softball club.

Hi John,

I assume you mean "illegal" glove.  I have never heard of your org. so I have no idea of the rules.  In ASA your glove would be legal (multicolor is ok for a pitcher as long as it's not the color of the ball) as we don't use a pink softball in our game.

I can answer all questions about book rules and "case book" rules governing the playing of ASA softball. Have a REAL situation that happened and are not sure the proper rule was applied, ask me.


I am a registered ASA umpire, a MASA "At-Large" umpire since 1996 and a retired District Umpire-In-Chief. I have very extensive experience in MASA State Championship and ASA national qualifying tournament play both as an umpire and an Umpire-In-Chief. I completed 3 ASA National Schools including the ASA national advanced umpire school in Ok City("Bernie" for those who know him was the lead clinician, I survived the week and couldn't let my kids watch the game tapes when I got home. No, I love you Bernie). I was one of 4 "Yankee" umpires selected to umpire the Men's D National East Championship in 2002 in Winter Haven FL
