3. 
All teams must arrive 45 minutes prior to game time. Please see the Tournament Director at the site for check-in. DO NOT ENTER A DUGOUT UNTIL CHECKED IN AND COIN FLIP HAS BEEN DONE BY THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR.

DO NOT ASSUME A GAME HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER
UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTIFIED, YOU MUST SHOW UP FOR THE GAME!

7. Home Team shall occupy the first base dugout; Visiting Team shall occupy the 3rd base dugout. Home and away will be determined by coin flip handled by the Tournament Director.

8. Batting practice will be permitted at the host location on a separate field if available, first come, first served.  The onsite tournament director will advise if a field is available (ie, don’t show up expecting a field).  Any practice on that separate field must end 45 minutes before game time.  It is strongly suggested that non-hosting teams do their pre-game warm-up at their home field prior to traveling to the host location.  NOTE: Infield practice on the field of play is NOT permitted prior to game time in Districts 28 & 34.

9No one may enter the turf fields at Burns Park.

10. The winning manager MUST email the score of the game and the number of defensive innings played by each team to sosmaccio@optonline.net within 2 hours of game time. Please include your district, division, and date of game (for example, 11/12 Softball on 7/7, D34 vs D32 - D34 6 runs, 6 defensive innings, D32 5 runs, 5 defensive innings).  If your schedule is a double elimination schedule, defensive innings are not necessary.

11.  A game suspended, for any reason, shall be rescheduled by the DA for the host district, or, if not available, the Section Coordinator or Ass't Section Coordinator.  On-site Tournament Directors should contact the applicable person before advising any managers of the rescheduled date, time and/or location.

12Rythmic chanting will not be permitted during a game if, in the umpire's determination, it rises to the level of unsportsmanlike conduct.

If you win  the section....please go to the New York Section website for your next round of play.
