Penalties for illegal bats will be assessed as follows:
… Do not warm up on infield grass and infield dirt. Play catch on the outfield grass area only.
… Do not hit baseballs into chain link fences.
… Pick up all trash after the game not only in your dugout area, but also your teams seating area.
… Support the home team’s snack shack.
… Help keep restrooms clean.
… Park in approved parking stalls only.
… Teams should alternate home and away when playing double headers. (Host team home the second game.)

… Turn in all forms and league paperwork on time.
… Help build our league in all age levels. Encourage other teams to join our league.
… Time in between double headers should be at least 20 minutes and not more than 30 minutes.

The signing period for players should be from when the Spring Season ends to when Winter Ball starts. Teams that allow players already on a team during the season are not helping promote travel baseball. Please only make roster spots for free agents! The $7.00 award you’re fighting for is not worth teaching players and families to not fulfill their commitments to the team they joined first.
… Steal Cleats are not allowed in ages 12 and below. Some fields and teams that use portable
… Game line up with roster of all eligible players should be traded with the other team before the start of every game at the umpire meeting. If you have a player coming late or leaving early, you just need to let the other team know before the game.
