2015 Softball Season

Looks like the bad winter weather is behind us as we look forward to the 2015 Softball Season. A few things I would like to highlight are the following:

A basic philosphy I came up with is to let the players play, coach's coach & umpires umpire.

Role of the players are to play their best within the rules, with good sportsmenship.

Role of the Managers are  to manage his players and coach's. Parent and fan behaviour also fall into his area of responsibility.

Umpires are to professionally manage the game within the outlined playing rules and reserve the right to do so without harassment from players, managers or fans. Be the team that when the umpire see's your team on the field he looks forward to doing the game.

Parents and fans are there to encourage the team's efforts throughout the game. Abusive contact with the umpiring crew during or after the game will not be tolerated. Please do not follow the umpire crew out to their vehicles after a game to voice your displeasure. Violations of this type will involve suspensions of the person involved. Most likely a yearlong suspension. Please remember that the umpiring crews are common people like you and I, parents and grandparents. Without them there would be no weekend tournaments or travel league.

Lastly I remind everyone about keeping the sport as safe as possible. Make sure catchers helmets are worn during all phases of warming up the pitcher. I've never seen a hockey goalie warm up without a mask. Do regular checks of batting helmets, bats for dents and rattles. Facemasks help protect facial injuries. Pitchers can now purchase protectors for the heart area in case of line drives.

Hope everyone has a fun year in 2015.
