NEORH Liability Waiver Form

I hereby agree to participate as a player, coach and/or umpire in NEO Roy Hobbs Baseball, Inc. (“NEORH”) amateur baseball. In consideration of acceptance into NEORH related events and activities and the payment of the required team/player fees (set by and paid to NEORH):

I voluntarily agree as a player and/or coach to play and/or coach for the team listed herein pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in this contract.

I agree to conduct myself in a manner that will reflect favorably upon my teammates, fellow competitors, coaches, spectators, umpires, NEORH and the game.

I agree to abide by and comply with the rules and regulations adopted by NEORH.

NEORH has adopted the mandatory rules issued by the Ohio Department of Health regrading participation in amateur baseball. These mandatory rules are attached hereto and made a part hereof. I agree that I will comply with all mandatory rules issued by the Ohio Department of Health, and any amendments thereto during my participation in NEORH baseball as a player, coach and/or umpire.

I acknowledge and understand that the violation of this contract, the rules and regulations adopted by NEORH or the violation of certain of the rules of baseball may result in penalties, suspension or expulsion without reimbursement of any fees that may have been paid.

I acknowledge and understand that risk of injury, including permanent disability and death, and severe social and economic losses that might result not only from my own actions, inactions or negligence of others, the rules of play, or the condition of the premises or of any equipment used, are inherent in my participating in the game of baseball, and, having full knowledge of such risk, I voluntarily assume them of my own accord. I further acknowledge that I may be exposed to an infectious disease, viral infection and/or bacterial infection while participating in NEORH, and I am aware of the contagious nature of potential exposure to an infectious disease, viral infection and/or bacterial infection while participating in the NEORH. I voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by an infectious disease, viral infection and/or bacterial infection while participating in NEORH, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I further understand that the risk of becoming injured and/or exposed to or infected by an infectious disease, viral infection and/or bacterial infection while participating in NEORH may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to NEORH employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families. Further, I understand there may be other risks not known to us or not reasonably foreseeable at this time. NEORH is not responsible for my health and wellbeing while participating in NEORH, whether at designated sites under the control of NEORH or elsewhere.

I, on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives, and next of kin, hereby release and hold NEORH harmless, along with its officers, trustees, officials, agents, and/or employees, its sponsors, field owners and other participants and their families with respect to any and all injury, disability, death, loss, or damages to person or property as a result of my participation in NEORH at designated sites under the control of NEORH or elsewhere.

I understand that should NEORH incur any attorney’s fees and/or costs related to any claim made with regard to my participation in NEORH, or to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify NEORH for such fees and costs and hold NEORH harmless therefrom.

I HAVE READ THIS RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS AND SIGN IT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY WITHOUT ANY INDUCEMENT OR ASSURANCE OF ANY NATURE AND INTEND IT TO BE A COMPLETE AND UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE OF ALL LIABILITY TO THE GREATEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW. I UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS BY SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT. I ALSO AGREE THAT IF ANY PORTION OF THIS AGREEMENT IS HELD TO BE INVALID, THE BALANCE NOTWITHSTANDING, SHALL CONTINUE IN FULL FORCE AND EFFECT.
