I cannot stress enough how strict we are on parent and coaches behavior. Please click this link to view our SUSPENSIONS page. Gone are the days of acting out at kids baseball games here. If you have an issue follow the proper protocol listed on the suspensions page and let's resolve it like adults. There will be no yelling at or disrespecting any OTC Sports official or staff member. Again there is a ZERO tolerance policy here. Any violators will be escorted from the venue by police detail and added to the Suspensions page. 

If as a coach you have a ruling issue ask the umpires to stop the game and have the Umpire In Charge report to the field. DO NOT GET INTO A VERBAL ALTERCATION WITH AN UMPIRE IT DOES 0 GOOD. Coaches may only request the UIC on an umpires ruling NOT any judgment calls. We are structured to never get rulings wrong.
