Managers - Know What's Going On! Players, you can Help
Still, however, about 5% of the managers come in after the deadline and say something like "No one ever called me. I didn't know when sign-ups were." These five percenters need your help. Players, don't assume that your managers know about important dates or deadlines, make sure to remind them. Some managers go into relax mode right after a season ends and don't think about the next season until someone calls. The information about the next season is always available before the current season ends.
So don't let your manager drop the ball or lose it in the sun, back him/her up. Remember, we provide three pitches, don't wiff.
