that, in the umpire's judgment does not meet these requirements will be a delayed dead

ball. The umpire will make a visual and/or verbally signal to indicate an illegal pitch. A

to any base will result in the runner being awarded that base. In addition, it is the runners

responsibility to avoid contact with the defensive player at all bases. If, in the opinion of the

umpire, any contact outside of incidental, the runner will be called out and will be ejected

from the game. A runner who initiates contact in an effort to dislodge the ball from the

fielder's grip will be declared out, and may be subject to the penalties of the next rule.

B. At the discretion of the umpire, any person who instigates a fight, provokes a physical

confrontation, or attempts to maliciously injure another player, will be ejected from the

game and a one game suspension. Offender(s) will be subject to ejection from the league,

without prior warning, pending further investigation.
