The 2017 National Pro Fastpitch season is the 14th season of professional softball under the name National Pro Fastpitch for the only professional women's softball league in the United States. From 1997 to 2002, NPF operated under the names Women's Pro Fastpitch (WPF) and Women's Pro Softball League (WPSL). Each year, the playoff teams battle for the Cowles Cup.

Milestones and events[edit]

The Dallas Charge announced that they would be relocating to San Marcos, Texas and changing their name to the Texas Charge.[1]

On January 16, 2017, the NPF announced that the ownership of the Pennsylvania Rebellion would be dissolving the team, effective immediately. All Rebellion players under contract were granted free agency.[2]

On February 1, the Village of Rosemont announced it would be assuming ownership of the Bandits from previous owner Bill Sokolis. The transaction included a $50,000 licensing fee paid to the NPF. Rosemont employee Toni Calmeyn will take over as general manager and will hire a new head coach.[3]

Later in February Softball Australia and NPF announced an agreement that will allow at least eight players from the Australia women's national softball team to play for the Bandits. This will increase the NPF's international profile, and allow the Australian players to compete against top-level talent.[4]

On May 2, 2017 NPF announced the addition of an expansion team, Beijing Shougang Eagles. Its roster is to be populated with members of China women's national softball team and selected American players. For 2017, the home half Beijing's schedule will be played in the home venues of the other NPF teams. Beijing is expected to announce an permanent US home location in the future.[5]

At the Pride's first home game at Space Coast Stadium, they announced that legendary pitcher Cat Osterman's jersey number 8 had been retired, commemorating it with a banner on the outfield fence.[6]

On July 26, Brittany Mack-Oakes threw a no-hitter, beating the Eagles 6-1.[7]

Monica Abbott threw the first no-hitter in Scrap Yard Dawgs' history on August 2, striking out 18. It was her fourth professional no-hitter.[8]

Rule changes[edit]

NPF held its annual winter meetings in Nashville from January 18–20, 2016. The following announcements were released after the meetings:[9]

  • Rosters were increased from a maximum of 23 players to 26. However, only 23 of those on the roster can be active for a game.
  • Team salary caps were increased from $150,000/team to $175,000. NPF clarified that only the amount paid to a player counts against the salary cap, eliminating "signing bonus[es], performance incentives, improved living conditions, et al."
  • The player minimum salary going forward is $3000.
  • Teams that have tagged an athlete with the Franchise Player Tag are allowed to negotiate beyond the established player value.
  • Extended a team's rights to retired player to permanent.
  • Clarified that a player who retires must spend at least one full season out of NPF.
  • A player's minimum age requirement was changed from 21 on January 1 of the season's calendar year to 21 at the time of the game.
  • Removed the minimum amount for travel expenses.
  • Banned the use of bats that are not on an official list of NPF suppliers.
  • Previously, NPF pitching rules mirrored the NCAA rules. Going forward, they are to follow World Baseball Softball Confederation rules.
  • Previously, the penalties for an illegal pitch were a ball added to the batter's count and advancing baserunners one base. Beginning in 2017, the penalty is only the ball added to the count.
  • Player autograph sessions will continue in 2017, but teams must to make player safety a priority. Sessions were suspended briefly in 2016 due to concerns about player safety.
  • The 8th inning tie-breaker rule for doubleheaders previously applied to scheduled doubleheaders. In 2017, the rule will apply to all doubleheaders, including makeup doubleheaders.
