Happy Weekend Kickballers!
 
Monday is week 7!!!! Here's a few things to know and remember:
 

  • Please PRINT OUT your player's card to show at the gate. Unfortunately some softball players tried to make a fake WAKA card and used their phone to show that gate attendant. Due to this Victory will only accept the printed card starting in 2 weeks.

 

  • EARLY REGISTRATION IS OPEN!!!! The price goes up by $5 on Oct. 15th! Get registered before then to save $$$$

 

  • Don't forget to buy some raffle tickets for charity and vote on the charity where you want the proceeds to go!

 

  • Please pick up your trash before leaving the fields. Two trash cans are provided!

Playoffs October 29th, 2012:
It has come to my attention that we have several football season ticket holders who cannot make the scheduled playoff night of October 29th. If this affects you please email me and let me know. If enough players are affected we might try to change that night. **So far I have heard from very few people about this, so as of now the playoff dates will remain unchanged....**

THE RULES HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY UPDATED!!!
 
16. INJURY ANDSUBSTITUTIONS
16.01 In cases of injury or illness, a time-out may be requested for participant removal and replacement with a teammate as a substitute. If the participant later returns to play, the participant must be inserted in the same written kicking order position previously held.
16.02 If a player is ejected, injured, or becomes ill and cannot continue, the written kicking order will continue in the same formation, less the removed player. There is no “automatic out” when the removed player’s spot in the order is reached.
16.03 Injured players who do not kick shall not play in the game.
16.04 Any player removed from the game for injury or illness must be noted on both team written kicking orders and mentioned to the Head Referee.
16.05 The pitcher and the catcher positions may only be replaced once per inning each, unless injury forces another substitution.
16.06 Only runners who are injured while traveling to a base, and who successfully make it to a base, may be substituted. There are no other allowable runner substitutions. A runner may be substituted no more than twice during the game. Upon the second substitution, the player will be removed from the game and no longer be allowed to participate.
 
See you on the field!!!
