Baseball Bat Decertification List

Standards of Conduct

Coaches and players are expected to maintain a standard of conduct that is necessary for the proper administration of the game and is consistent with the behavioral expectations of students and staff in a classroom environment. Umpires have considerable latitude in removing coaches and players for various acts which interfere with the game.  Many problems can and should be resolved with verbal cautions or warnings. Below are examples of behavior requiring more than a verbal caution or warning.

  1. A player draws a line on the dirt to indicate the location of a pitch.
  2. Profanity by either a coach or player directed at an umpire or profanity loud enough to be heard by fans.
  3. A coach refusing to return to the dugout or coaching lines after an umpire has explained a ruling.
  4. Jumping up and down or other such actions to show displeasure over a call or ruling, whether from the dugout or the field.
  5. Any non-playing action-related contact with an umpire, whether it’s accidental or intentional.
  6. The throwing of equipment such as bats or helmets in reaction to a call or ruling.
  7. A coach or player who refuses to follow verbal directions from an umpire relating to the administration of the game.
  8. A coach who leaves his position after being warned to argue balls and strikes.
  9. Blatant violation of the rules, such as cutting considerably short of third base in scoring a run.
