A special thank you to Mike Anderson from BCGFPL for making this happen!

Ohio's Return To Play Law in 2013

Starting, April 26, 2013, Ohio's new "Return to Play" law goes into effect which requires coaches, umpires, or officials to REMOVE AN ATHLETE FROM PLAY if the athlete is exhibiting the signs and symptoms of a concussion during practice or a game.

All Coaches must be familiar with the new rule and it is highly recommended that all coaches are certified in the Concussion.

For more info:
