For Our Players

Player's Code of Conduct

Baseball is essentially a team game which is played for enjoyment, for physical fitness, and for a feeling of accomplishment. Because it is a team sport, a good baseball player will develop a spirit of cooperation, learning to enjoy the give and take of team play.

Learn to encourage your own teammates and realize that you are seeking a common goal - the satisfaction of a game well played.

View each game as a learning opportunity and come from losses as well as victories stronger for having played.

Treat opposing teams as guests and learn to value their strengths and abilities as well as those of your own team.

Respect your coach at all times and try to learn from each practice session and game situation.

Always treat umpires and officials with respect, realizing that every umpire seeks to call each game to the best of his or her ability, and their function is to help assure that a fair, safe game is played. You can help by your attitude and behavior.

If chosen to represent your division, league, state or region in tournament play, do so with pride and conduct yourself in such a manner as to bring honor to yourself and those you represent.

There is no place in the game of baseball for violence or unfair play of any kind. Retaliation for injuries is never acceptable. Good sportsmanship demands self-control.

The use of profanity during any game or practice is prohibited.
