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
