  KEY ISSUES AND INFORMATION FOR YOUR ATTENTION  
 

During a baseball game or gatherings after wards, there is no such thing as 'not crossing the line', there is no line. Any type of distasteful or abusive or arrogant behavior is NOT ACCEPTABLE. Please remember that above all we are dealing people just like us, and nobody needs to have their one day of enjoyment ruined by a fellow baseball supporter.

We have come across situations that indicate that Coaches are NOT fulfilling their obligations under the Code of Conduct. Coaches are reminded of the duty they have for themselves and players to uphold the code. This is particularly important in respect of the safety rules.

Do not THINK you know the game and competition rules KNOW you know the game and competition rules. If you can give an Umpire advice on judgment calls, please call Luis and get yourself assigned to a game.

Your contribution towards correcting wrongs help all in the learning process, contact the PCBL with any unsure issues.

Umpires deserve the courtesy of being called what they are, that is UMPIRE please avoid referring or engaging them as Blue.
