Fire Ban Rules at Lakeland Ford Park
PA Fire Department has advised us to prohibit all open fires, propane heaters and fires, and charcoal BBQ's in the park at all times. Basically all sources of flame ...
EXCEPT propane BBQ's.
Folks please be careful out there including CIGARETTES. Our park is extremely dry and the city has not turned on our water yet. Any kind of fire could destroy our park quickly.
New Things For 2018
We have continued to upgrade our park every year. Last season we put new shale on diamonds 2,3,4 & 5 and built a new bathroom between diamonds 5 & 6. This year we have completed the shale on diamonds 1,6 & 7 and are also installing new batters mats on all 7 diamonds. Many upgrades have been done over the last 5 years and we should all be proud of our park. Please take the time to keep it clean by using garbages and keeping cans in piles to be picked nearby the garbage.
-First and last names of all players on all gamesheets. Umpires have been instructed that they will not be paid without proper first and last names. Also must have team name, coaches signature and Dual Division male players must be identified in Coed games with a simple DD beside their name.
-All rosters will be made public. In order to cut down on using ineligible players in our league we will have all rosters made public on our website. If you have any problems please look into the roster and then contact us via email (email@example.com) or facebook messenger.
-SPN has not made safety equipment mandatory at this time. Our league will also follow this. However we do recommend wearing equipment to protect yourself as you feel necessary. Such as pitching and infielder masks, shin guards, and batting helmets. Any players caught making fun of another or insulting another for wearing protective equipment will be ejected from the game and subsequently suspended.
-Female homeruns will count against the homerun total your team is allowed.
-Fines for defaulting will be $50 for any one league game. Tournament games will be $100 per game unless you miss an entire tournament, then it will be $500
-All teams must wear uniforms. Uniforms is defined as a "team identifiable" jersey or shirt with a number on it. Teams will have until the beginning of the Opening tournament to get uniforms. Anyone not wearing a uniform at this time will start each at bat with an extra strike against them. League games 0-1 Tournament games 1-2. Teams may also face fines for not having proper uniforms later in the season.
