Player Code of Conduct
Baseball Queensland Inc. Players Codes of Conduct as set by BQI and administered by RLPBC
Play by the rules of the game at all times
Respect the Umpires. If you disagree with a non-judgment call, have your Coach or manager approach the Umpire(s) during a break or after the game has finished.
Control your temper. Verbal abuse of Umpires and sledging other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviors in any sport, especially baseball.
Work equally hard for yourself and/or team. Your teams’ performance will benefit and so will yours.
Be a good sport. Appreciate all good plays whether your own team or the opposition makes them.
Cooperate with your Coach, teammates and opponents. Without them there would be no Baseball competition.
Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents and coaches.
Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all players regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
Remember where you started…Give something back to the juniors below.
You are solely responsible and accountable for your actions.
All players are capable of doing one perfect thing on field at all times-Hustling.
Punctuality to training and games is a sign of dedication and personal accountability.
Although Baseball is important to you, family and education are your main priorities.
Profanity at any level at any time is unacceptable.
Respect the facility you train and play on at all times.
If you have a problem with a decision of your Coach, speak to him/her about it privately and forget all behind the back comments.
Respect the uniform you wear…by wearing it properly.
Seniors, remember the little eyes (juniors) are on you…It is a compliment but also a big responsibility.
Your on field actions speak louder than words…Lead by example.
Treat all spectators, volunteer workers and scorers with the respect they deserve…A huge amount!
Keep your physical condition to a high level…to play good you must look and feel good. Remember also, the players are the most important advertisements ANY sport has
