The APA created The Equalizer® system in order to allow players of various abilities to compete equally. This system and its formula are considered proprietary and therefore your League Operator is limited to the information they can share with you. That having been said, it is important to understand that good scorekeeping during weekly League play is vital to the accuracy of not only your skill level, but the skill level of your opponent. This includes, but is not limited to, the proper marking of innings and defensive shots. Following each week of play, your League Operator conducts a review of each player in each division to ensure that all players are participating at the correct skill level.
