NEW in 2014- Online Rosters
Teams will no longer have “paper” Rosters and must have all players register online.
(Please do not attempt to register your team online until details are released)
Teams will now register their ROSTERS online through SPN at www.slo-pitch.com. Every single
player must register online for EVERY Team they play or Spare on. Rosters will be frozen when July
schedule is released. No Rosters will be handed out or signed like in past seasons
Step by step directions how to players register online
-Team MUST register IN PERSON at a registration meeting WITH A DEPOSIT before being added
to ourLeague team list…Do NOT START a team list before registering in person with the League and
you receive the email from SPN to register your team
-Once team registers primary team contact will be sent an email with a link to register and set up
an account as a player and set up their team.
- Team contact will add all players with their email address and then they too will be sent an email
with a link to register and set up an account as a player
- All players must check off all boxes when setting up your account to agree to waiver
- All players WILL need an active email account- if a player doesn’t have a computer or email,
BORROW a team mates phone and create an email account then have captain add you then create
SPN account- it takes only a couple of minutes
- Once a player had an active SPN account, it takes a click of a button to add a player to your team as
the player account is a once time deal as long as the player keeps the same active email address. A
player must be on THAT team roster to play for THAT team
- Data base is PRIVATE so players can not view other player’s info. Only the League will have access to all team Rosters
Playing on multiple teams in League- NEW in 2014
Player can play on as many teams as they like as long as they have registered with that team online.. Any conflicting games the league will not hold up games for players (eg. League Tournament, make up games, playoff weekend). The player must pick a team to play on. This rule is to make it fair for all teams so teams are not picking up players at diamonds on game days. To be eligible for playoffs a player must play a minimum of 8 games for THAT TEAM to play
Several teams are NOT bringing proper game balls to play with.
You may only use Worth HOT DOTS.
You can buy them at Home Run Sports, and even at Walmart.
Teams will FORFEIT is they don’t have the correct balls, so please pick some up if needed!!
Remember to ALWAYS call the info line on game day to make sure all games are on

POLICY ON FORFEITS
Forfeits- will count as a game played with non-forfeiting team awards a 10-0 win (and 2 points in the standings) In the event of a forfeit. The non-forfeiting team will NOT pay umpire for that game. The League will pay the umpire and the forfeiting team will be responsible for reimbursing the League for FULL UMPIRE FEE ($30.00) with 7 days of forfeit or risk suspension)
This INCLUDES a team forfeiting during the game with open Liquor at City Diamonds OR at Buhler Park for outside Liquor. If a team forfeits a game at Buhler Park in which their opponents were at the Park for only one game that day they will be fined an additional $30 which will go directly to opponents to cover gate fees of the team.
If a team contacts the League with a courtesy call a minimum of 24 hours before game time to forfeit a game so we can contact the opponents and the umpire, they will not be responsible for Umpire Fees. If a team does give a courtesy call to forfeit, and the game/s end up being rained out, it will NOT be a forfeit, and will be rescheduled for the makeup weekend. If as team forfeits on a makeup date and it is rained out, it will NOT be rescheduled and still a forfeit
Outside Alcohol & Food Policy For Buhler Recreation Park
Anyone found in the park with outside alcohol, will have the alcohol confiscated and will be asked to leave the park immediately.
If outside alcohol is found on the player’s bench, the game will be immediately forfeited and the offending party will be asked to leave the park. IF no one takes responsibility for the liquor in question, the whole team will be asked to leave the park and will be forced to forfeit their games that day.
Drinking in the parking lots will result in loss of playing and spectating privileges at the park.
Depending on the circumstance, there will be an added suspension from the park and/or league and a fine may be charged. The length and amount of the fine or suspension will be decided on due to the circumstances of each incident.
Please support Buhler Recreation Park as they are a Community Owned Facility- please no outside food of drinks at Buhler Park. They will be serving food, water, pop, and alcohol at Beer Gardens as well as right at the Diamonds
NO COOLERS, COOLER BAGS or outside drink containers (ie Big Gulp Cups, coffee cups) allowed in the park. If you bring it to the gate, they will ask you to put it back in your vehicle. You may bring on one SEALED bottle of water
PLEASE LET ALL YOUR TEAM MATES KNOW THIS!!
A lot of games are getting cut short due to time limit or darkness. Please have team arrive early and warm up ahead of time. Please hustle on and off the diamond between innings. You are paying for 7 inning games, hustle so you can play 7 inning games.
Why are all rainouts on rainout weekends?
We often get questions like “Why are makeup’s on weekends?” or “Can’t you just schedule us the makeup game on week when we only play once?” or “Start the season a week later?”
The answer is simple…we take enough teams to accommodate the number of diamonds and umpires we have available. We can not add games to the week day schedule.
Teams please remember when you are home team NOT at Buhler Park, you must supply and set up bases and strike zone mat. Home team is the team listed on the RIGHT HAND SIDE of your schedules
Home team at all diamonds must supply 2 playable game balls-
Worth Grey Dot (.40 core) or Worth Hot Dots ONLY. White or Optic are acceptable
Scorecards supplied by the umpire, but the winning team must bring in scorecard to the bartender at Boston Pizza for ALL city Diamonds or Buhler Park (for all games at Buhler Park) immediately after game or risk forfeit, except games at Northwood where Umpires will turn in cards and call in scores. Games at Buhler please leave them there..NOT Boston Pizza
