Letter: No Cussing In Baseball

Please remember we have a zero tolerance rule for unreasonable conduct of a parent and or a coach. We all have had, during the course of our baseball careers, run across umpires we may not agree with. That DOES NOT give anyone permission to allow him to take abuse by any parent or parents. Especially with the younger kids, where we have high school/college kids umpiring games too.

A lot of these kids are our kids that run the tournament, and help with all maintenance of the fields too. These kids are being employed by us instead of hanging on the corner with their friends.  

I do not think anyone of you would want their children abused all game by some parent. So please control your parents and yourselves. Tournament organizers have been instructed to throw any coaches, parents, or mangers out immediately, and if it continues the game will be forfeited, and I do not think anyone wants a forfeit. Thanks for listening to my rant.
