ROOKIE PLAYOFF SCHEDULE

Playoffs begin on Sunday, August 17. Standings (percentage) used for playoffs will be taken as of the end of games on Friday, Aug. 15. If there is a tie anywhere in the standings a coin toss will be used to determine who is ahead. Once the schedule is set games will not be changed unless they are rained out or there is a field conflict. If games are rained out teams should be prepared to possibly play the following night or whenever there is a field time available.

The dates of Crossovers and Championship games could possibly change due to rainouts during Round Robin play.

Home team during round robin play will be determined by a coin toss at the plate. 

Games cannot end in a tie. If the score is tied at the end of a game and you are unable to play an extra inning(s) the score will revert back to the last full untied inning played. If a game ends in a tie and you are able to play an extra inning(s) the following will be used.

Each team will begin the extra inning (and any subsequent necessary extra innings) with a player on first and second, no outs. See example below to confirm who is on first and second.

Example: If in the last regulation inning the #6 hitter had the last plate appearance, then the extra inning begins with the #7 hitter at bat, and the #5 hitter at second base and the #6 hitter at first base.

The HOME team must call 865-5586 or email sackvilleminorbaseball@gmail.com the SCORE AND THE NUMBER OF DEFENSIVE INNINGS EACH TEAM PLAYED immediately following their game.  The Home team score is final so during games it is suggested that each team continually check with the opposing score keeper so there are no descrepancies in the scores.

2013 SPECIAL RECOGNITION

Sackville Minor Baseball recognizes two people each year for the great jobs they have done.                                                                             

Dwayne White was chosen for our 2013 Volunteer of the Year. Even though Dwayne has not been with Sackville Minor Baseball for long, he is one of those coaches you would like to keep forever. Dwayne is all about what is best for his players. He teaches them about the game but more important he shows them respect and how to be a team player. The past 2 years Dwayne's Mosquito house team has made it to the playoff championship game and in 2013 they took the championship trophy.   CONGRATULATIONS DWAYNE WHITE!
Glen MacQuarrie was chosen for our 2012 Behind the Scenes Volunteer. Glen has been around for many years. He has coached both house and Rep at different levels. He has also coached our Acadian Little League team the past several years and lead them to a gold medal game for the first time in thirty years. Glen also volunteers at our bingo every Monday night. He is a member of Riverview Community Centre Association , who maintain our ballfields.   CONGRATULATIONS GLEN MACQUARRIE! 

Sackville Minor Baseball would like to thank all our coaches and other volunteers. We appreciate all the time and effort that everyone has put forth to make our 2012 baseball season a success. Thank-you very much and we hope to see you next season.

ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY ON UMPIRE ABUSE

Zero Tolerance Policy” should read: “Ensuring a fair, safe, healthy and fun game environment is our top priority.” Sackville Minor Baseball Association has adopted a zero-tolerance policy for arguing judgement calls, umpire abuse or call-related displays of poor sportsmanship. The Zero Tolerance Policy of Umpire Abuse highlights the special circumstances for youth players as umpires. One of the founding principles of Sackville Minor Baseball is positive coaching, this includes umpires that work on all fields. Youth/adult umpires should only be talked to positively and constructively. Coaches will not challenge judgement calls made by the umpires. It is acceptable to question the interpretation of a rule, but only in a courteous non-confrontational manner.

Umpire Abuse as Defined in this Policy – umpire abuse at its simplest is defined as any deliberate action that makes an umpire feel physically threatened, verbally intimidated or emotionally humiliated. Disrespectfully objecting to calls, yelling at, publicly calling, constantly disagreeing with an umpire by action or verbally can be deemed umpire abuse. Coaches should always show decorum, respect and observe all game rules whenever questioning an umpire about a call.

Judgement Calls - a judgement call is a decision made by an official in a competition using their own opinion of what they have seen. An umpire's judgement call is final. Most calls are based on the judgement of the umpire ie. You may see it one way and the umpire may see it differently. Missed calls are going to happen in every game, that's baseball. Judgement calls include; balls & strikes, safe/ out calls on bases (force and tag), catch/ no catch calls, fair/foul, etc. For reference only - non-judgement calls include; interference, base runners hit by batted balls, etc.

Guidelines for disciplinary action range from an oral and/or written reprimand for verbal abuse to expulsion from Sackville Minor Baseball for flagrant or repeat offenders. The details are outlined in the policy below.

Purpose of the Policy This policy has been implemented to eliminate umpire abuse, both physical and verbal, and to discourage public dissent of an umpire on all fields. Even though public dissent may not be considered abuse, it is not in keeping with Sackville Minor Baseball principles of positive coaching and good sportsmanship and therefore will not be tolerated.

It is never acceptable to verbally abuse an umpire in any situation. There are appropriate avenues for coaches and spectators to share concerns about the quality of officiating. The local area Umpire-in-Chief (BNSUD.com) is welcome to hear any constructive comments on umpires. Any criticism or critique relating to the performance of a youth umpire should be communicated to the youth umpire only by the Umpire-in-Chief.

Youth umpires are an integral part of the Sackville Minor Baseball program. This includes development of all youth umpires. All Sackville Minor Baseball guidelines and policies on providing a Safe, Fair and Fun environment for players also apply to our umpires. Only Positive, Instructive, and Encouraging comments are allowed to be directed at both players and umpires. Verbal abuse of umpires is as unacceptable as verbal abuse of youth players. The purpose of this policy is to make clear that abuse (as defined in this policy) of any umpire is unacceptable, and to adopt basic standard sanctions for improper conduct based on a “three-strikes-you’re-out” framework.

This policy is not intended to imply that the umpire is always right and the adult spectator/coach is always wrong. We must simply remember that just as youth players will make mistakes during play, adult/youth umpires will also make mistakes in officiating, particularly in the younger divisions where they are learning how to umpire. Please remember, young umpires receive minimal instruction before being sent out to officiate. Also, please keep in mind that they do not attend practices nor do they have a coach on the field to guide them from game to game. Given that the rules of baseball are numerous and in any given game many difficult scenarios could unfold, it is in all of our best interests to judge officials fairly and with reasonable expectations. After all, we cannot play this game without these courageous individuals.

Disciplinary Guidelines The penalties for any confirmed case of umpire abuse by coach/adult team member and/or parent/spectator on all fields will be;

  • 1st Incident - Disciplinary Committee reprimand orally and/or in writing.

  • 2nd Incident - 3 game suspension for a coach/adult team member; 3 games for parent/spectator regardless of past history, coaching experience or program involvement. This suspension will be IN ADDITION to any suspension due to an ejection from a game.

  • 3rd Incident - Season ending ban for any offending person. (Includes attendance at remaining games on all fields)

Ejected coaches are not permitted to remain on the surrounding field areas, including grandstands, and must vacate all field areas in a timely manner.

In addition, if a coach confronts an umpire after a game in order to continue verbally abusing an official, the penalties will include a 3 game suspension for the 1st incident and 6 games for the 2nd.

Any incident that involves physical abuse by bodily threatening, shoving, bumping or harming a youth will result in an immediate indefinite suspension and notification of proper authorities. A manager or coach wishing to be reinstated must appear before the Disciplinary Committee for a hearing.

The Sackville Minor Baseball Executive Board will enforce any and all disciplinary action. The Disciplinary Committee will consist of the residing President along with a minimum of 2 additional members of the current Executive. The Umpire Coordinator will follow-up to ensure the offending spectator or coach is not in attendance of any of the games during his/her suspension.

All Sackville Minor Baseball Association members are bound to report any incident of abuse of umpires to the Sackville Board within 24 hours of the incident occurring (if possible).

The Disciplinary Committee, upon investigating the incident and after hearing from all parties, shall implement any appropriate penalties before the next game (if possible). The offending persons, board members, and the Umpire Coordinator shall be notified of any disciplinary action.
