Article 5 – PLAYER REGISTRATION
A - A new player is a player who did not play the previous season or does not appear on the official roster of an LOL team as submitted on July 4 of the previous season.
B – No team shall have more than 30 players on its playoff roster. High school or junior league players joining teams after their seasons shall not be counted against the player roster limit of 30 players.
C – Teams must submit their roster to their division commissioner postmarked or time-stamped (if e-mailed) no later than 11:59 pm on July 4. The LOL Secretary/Treasurer must receive rosters by July 15. Failure to comply will result in a $25 fine, which will be increased $5 per day until the LOL Secretary/Treasurer receives the rosters. All fines must be paid by December 31 of the current year.
D – A team not turning in a roster is ineligible to play in the LOL Grand Championship Playoffs.
E – Rosters shall include first and last names, current address (including city, state, zip code) and phone number for each player listed.
F – All players must sign a permanent individual player registration card and liability release waiver (see Art. 1C) before participating as a player in any LOL games. Once signing a registration card, a player cannot participate in league games with any other LOL team unless their current LOL team properly releases them. Any player breaking this rule shall be automatically suspended from participating with any team in the LOL. Only the LOL Board of Directors may reinstate the suspended player.
G – No player, once listed on a team's official July 4 roster, will be allowed to change teams after July 4.
H - Each team shall certify to its division commissioner before January 31 the name of the person(s) authorized to sign and release players. Changes made in the person(s) authorized to act as above must be submitted to the division commissioner.
I - Registration cards shall be filed with the LOL Secretary/Treasurer no later than July 15 of the current season. Exceptions are high school and junior league players signed after the conclusion of their season. This card will become part of the player’s permanent file.
J – Manager Self Release: No manager may release themselves. If a manager wants their release from their present team they must first step down as manager and then secure their release from the new manager.
