Players are expected to arrive on time for pre-game workouts and conduct themselves during the game in an acceptable manner. It is a team's responsibility to promote good sportsmanship and fair play. The following are simple rules for players to follow throughout the season:
~ Play for the fun of playing, not just to please your parents.
~ Play by the rules.
~ Never argue with or complain about umpire's calls or decisions.
~ Control your temper and resist the temptation to retaliate when you feel you have been wronged.
~ Concentrate on playing baseball and on affecting the outcome of the game with your best effort.
~ Be a good sport by cheering all good plays, whether it is your team or your opponent's.
~ Treat all players as you would like to be treated.
~ Cooperate with your manager, coaches, teammates, opponents and umpires.
~ Food is not allowed in the dugouts, although sunflower seeds are permitted.
For more information, refer to the CODES OF CONDUCT SECTION
of the site.
Any player, manager, coach, parent or spectator whose conduct is not consistent with the guidelines set may be cautioned by the umpire or other League official. Foul or abusive language is strictly prohibited.
If an individual is unable to refrain from using foul language or making derogatory remarks to any player, manager, coach, or umpire or other League official may suspend the game until that individual leaves the park complex and/or other playing areas. If the individual refuses to leave the park complex and/or other playing areas, the umpire may discontinue the game and the police will be called for assistance. If the disruptive individual is a manager, coach or player, additional sanctions will likely occur depending on the circumstances.
