VI. Make-up Scheduling
Rain-outs/postponed games will be rescheduled at a future date, mutually agreed upon by the two managers. The rescheduled game date for rain-out/postponed games MUST be agreed upon within 7 days. If the two managers cannot agree within 7 days, they must bring the issue to the attention of the division commissioner.
In the event of some unusual circumstances a manager is unable to field a minimum of 9 players for a game, the manager will have the right to reschedule the game up to 2 hours prior to game time. The manager must also notify the division commissioner with a legitimate reason as to why rescheduling is necessary.
In the event a team forfeits a game, the forfeiting team will be required to pay any umpire fees associated with the game. If a team forfeits a second game in the same season, that team will be responsible for both the umpire fees plus a $25.00 fine which will be paid to the Mountaineer League treasurer prior to said team’s next scheduled game. If the same team forfeits a third game, said team will be responsible for the umpire fees plus a $50.00 fine to be paid to the Mountaineer League treasurer before said team’s next scheduled game. In the event the same team forfeits 3 games in one season, the head coach of said team and the organization’s board of directors representative shall appear before the Mountaineer League executive officers and the division commissioner from the division in which said team plays. Said appearance will be to allow the head coach and organization representative an opportunity to explain why additional sanctions should not be levied against said team and/or organization.
Visiting team for all games, both regularly scheduled and make-up games, shall be permitted to utilize the field for warm-ups thirty (30) minutes prior to the start of the game. For example, if the game is scheduled to start at 6:00 p.m. the visiting team shall be given the field for warm-ups at 5:30 p.m. The only exceptions to this rule will be if there is a game scheduled on the field immediately prior to the scheduled game in which case neither the home nor visiting team shall be permitted warm-ups on the field. Additionally, the visiting team will not be entitled to the field one-half (1/2) hour before scheduled game time if weather conditions prohibit the same.
