1 PUYALLUP PARKS & RECREATION YOUTH T-BALL AND COACH PITCH RULES ADMINISTRATION 1. This program is sponsored by Puyallup Parks & Recreation Department. Scheduling is provided by the City of Puyallup Parks & Recreation Department. 2. The Puyallup youth baseball/softball rules will supersede all other rules. Girl's leagues will play under NFHS rules. Where interpretation of baseball league rules are unclear, Official Baseball rules will apply. PRE-GAME AND GAME GUIDELINES 1. Games will be rescheduled only by the Puyallup Parks & Recreation Department. This rule will not be waived except in the case of an extreme emergency. 2. In case of BAD WEATHER, the coach should call the Youth Sports Rain Out Line after 4:00 p.m. at (253) or to determine if the games will be played. We do not call you. 3. A ten minute grace period will be allowed before a forfeit will be declared, if it is the only game scheduled on that field for that evening. There will be no grace period for the second game of the evening on one field. 4. PRE-GAME A. Home team will take the 3rd base side of the field. B. Visiting team will take the 1st base side of the field. PROTESTS 1. Player eligibility will be the only protestable item. 2. A written report setting forth all facts of the protest must be filed by 5:00 p.m. of the next business day after the completion of the game being protested. A $25.00 protest fee must accompany the written protest. The fee will be returned if the protest is upheld. 3. The protesting manager/coach must at the time of the protest: (A) Notify the head umpire, the opposing coaches and the official scorekeeper that the game is being played under protest. (B) Insure that both the official home team scorebook and any other scorebook are matched as to the exact situation (batter, runner, outs, players in the game, etc.) at the time the protest occurred. (C) The umpire should announce to the crowd that the game is being played under protest. (D) The protest shall be ruled upon by the Sports Committee. 4. The sports committee must rule and report their findings within two business days after receipt of notice. The report may be verbal followed by a letter within five working days. 5. The sports committee findings will be final.

2 GAME CONDUCT AND DISCIPLINARY ACTION 1. Any coach, player or spectator found guilty of drinking, use of tobacco or drugs, or swearing while on the playing field or in the presence of the players will be subject to immediate suspension by the umpire or sports committee. 2. Any team, coach, player or spectator who is abusive toward other coaches, participants, umpires, or assigned recreation personnel before, during or after a game shall be subject to immediate suspension. Any player, coach or spectator that strikes an umpire, spectator, player or league official, before, during or after a game, will be suspended from all recreation programs for life. 3. A player, coach or spectator ejected from a game will be subject to review by the sports committee who may impose additional restrictions if warranted. Any player or coach ejected from a game for conduct violations will be restricted from participating in their next scheduled game. A spectator ejected from a game for conduct violations will be restricted from attending their next scheduled game. 4. Any player or coach participating in a game from which he/she has been suspended will result in a forfeit of that game, and additional disciplinary action. 5. Any coach who removes his team from the playing field prior to the completion of a game, or who causes a game to be forfeited because of his conduct toward the umpire shall be subject to immediate suspension. 6. If for some reason it becomes necessary to consider the dismissal of a player for disciplinary reasons the coach must submit in writing a letter detailing the reasons to the league office for their review. The coaches, parents and player will be notified of the results. 7. A player may be disciplined and kept out of a game. The coach must first notify the league office of the disciplinary action as well as the umpire and opposing coach. The parents and player should also be informed in advance of game time of the disciplinary action and the reasons for the action. 8. A player may be removed from a game for misconduct. The coach must notify the umpire and the opposing team immediately at the time of the removal. The player's name and the reason for the disciplinary action should be recorded in the scorebook. 9.
