All changes to the USA Softball Code, Procedural Manual and/or Playing rules are made through a legislative process. The first step to enact code legislation is for a member of the USA Softball Council to submit proposed legislation to amend the USA Softball Code, Procedural Manual and/or Playing Rules. All code and playing rule amendments are then voted on by the USA Softball Council during the meeting.
