PANDEMIC STATEMENT

The following information is on a “planned” Kino Baseball Fall League season. The season is predicated on directives and orders from state and local governments. The plan is to have a season, but it must be understood that the league will only move forward providing conditions will allow for the priority of the safety and health of all participants and approval with field permits from the county and city.

COVID 19 MITIGATION PRACTICES

The Kino Baseball League has currently posted its safety and health plan as it relates to COVID19 as well as the Pima County resolution regarding face coverings. This plan is a working document and revisions and updates will occur as we go through this period of mitigation in a safe and positive manner that will permit for the priority of the safety and health of the players, coaches and spectators that participate in the Kino Fall League. It is fully expected that all teams that play the Kino Fall League will adhere to the requirements and recommendations of the safety and health plan for players, coach, and spectators no exceptions.

In order to maintain as much routine that can be accomplished during this time, spectators are required to follow the Pima County resolution regarding face coverings when in public place and cannot maintain a continuous physical distance of at least 6 feet from all other persons.

It is understood that families have the option of either participating or not participating.

Strongly recommended that each team develops their own safety and health mitigation plans.

NARRATIVE

The following are team entry requirements and policies for teams to review before they decide to enter a team in the 2020 Kino Baseball Fall League program.

The policies and requirements that are outlined are to ensure that the players, coach, and parents fully understand to what the expectations are for competing in the Kino Baseball Fall League.

The Kino Baseball League reserves the right not to accept any team that does not meet these requirements.

FALL LEAGUE DEFINITION

The Kino Baseball Fall League is a competitive program for age divisions 10U through to 15U.  The Kino Fall League is NOT a recreational or developmental type of league.  The teams that participate in the league are mainly experienced players and teams.  Teams that have not played in a competitive environment may want to re-consider before entering the Kino Fall League.

If you have a team that is looking for development, then possibly the Little League Fall Training and Development (TAD) program may be best suited for your players.

We wish to assure that every young athlete has the opportunity to play at the skill level that they are comfortable with the ability to enjoy playing the game.  Nothing is worse than having a team that needs further development playing in a division with teams that have more playing experience in a competitive setting.  The results are never positive.

Teams that play in the Kino Baseball Fall League play for championships.

CONDUCT

Adult coaches set the example for their team when it comes to how they conduct themselves during a game.  Debating or questioning calls with the umpires is part of the game, but it is how one conducts themselves during their interaction with the umpires that determines if a coach remains in the game without being ejected.

Using profane language, doing damage to equipment, kicking dirt, physical contact with an umpire, non-stop talking to the umpires regarding balls/strikes, judgment related calls, unsportsmanlike conduct of any kind are causes for an individual getting ejected from a game.

The policy of Kino Baseball League regarding conduct is as follows:

SPECTATOR CONDUCT

The permits and contracts for fields from the city, county and school districts require the league to be responsible for the safety and security of the players, coaches and spectators that attend games.

Coaches are responsible for controlling their spectators.  If the umpires request coach’s intervention with any spectator, it is fully expected that the coaches will assist.  Failure for a coach to assist, the umpire has full authority to eject the coach from the game.

Spectators can be ejected from the park.  Failure for ejected spectator(s) to leave the park, the game will be suspended by the umpires until the ejected spectator(s) have left the park.  If the ejected spectator(s) fail to leave, the law enforcement will be contacted to have the individual(s) removed from the park.

Spectator(s) can be banned from a public park if their conduct becomes a detriment to the safety and security of the players, coaches, umpires and those spectators around them.
