Protests 

A protest is only available for a violation or misapplication of a rule, not for coach/fan/player disagreement with an umpire’s judgement call (ie. ball and strikes, out and safe). Pitching limitations are not eligible for protest. Protests must be filed and ruled on before the next pitch if during a game, or before umpires leave field if after a game. The team protesting must make cash payment of $100 at the time of protest and the protest will only be heard and ruled upon by the tournament committee. If the protest is ruled in the protesting team’s favor, the $100 will be refunded to the team.

 

Sportsmanship

It is required that all teams, coaches, and fans comply with all tournament and facility rules. Team managers/head coaches MUST have full control of their players and parents at all times. This means “on” and “off” the field. Tournament Directors and hosts have the authority to eject a player, fan or team anytime during the tournament for threatening with physical harm, physical attack, abusive language, destruction of property, or failure to pay. The tournament committee reserves the right to eject any person from the site for unruly or unsportsmanlike behavior. Any physical altercation between two teams before, during, or after a contest could result in the removal of both teams from the remainder of the event and future events.

 

Ejections 

Any player, coach, manager, spectator and fan that is ejected from a game shall be suspended and removed for the remainder of that game only. Any individual ejected must leave the complex and exit to the parking lot. *If a team is hitting a continuous lineup, the ejected player’s spot in the lineup will remain and his team is forced to take an out. Any player or coach that acts maliciously or performs an act with intent to injure, the tournament committee has the final say in the penalty for that individual(s). Any individual that gets ejected for a second time in a tournament shall be removed and eliminated from participating in the remainder of that tournament.
