Managers and Coaches

Tournament teams are allowed one manager and two coaches. This ensures that the team has supervision
even if one coach can not make a particular game. However, if you can not commit to the entire
tournament then you should not have your name on the roster. Teams are not allowed to replace or change
coaches once a tournament is in progress.


Coaching Certification
Beginning with the 2008 season, all tournament coaches must have completed a course and received
certification from an accredited program.

       Tournament Regulations – Rule 11.04 Documents, Para. 1 (h)
        “Coaching Certification I.D. Card or Certificate. Tournament Managers and Coaches must
       complete coaching education and certification prior to the start of their first level of tournament
       competition” .

No coach will be allowed on the field during competition if proof of certification is not presented as part
of the team credentials prior to the start of play.


Conduct
Each manager and coach is responsible for his personal conduct on and off the diamond as well as each
team member’s. All are officially placed on notice that we want everyone to enjoy themselves at the State
Tournament, but that no conduct which could be interpreted as detrimental to the basic aim of Babe Ruth
Baseball, which is “building better citizenship”, will be tolerated. Any team or individual whose conduct
is not above reproach will be disqualified and sent home without delay.
       Individual leagues shall be held responsible for the action of their parents and fans. The
       leagues are liable for any damage done and any unauthorized expenses incurred by their
       tournament team players, coaches, manager, or fans.
                 Eastern New York Babe Ruth Leagues, Inc.
                                Jerry Francis, Commissioner




Pool play standings will be determined as follows:

1. WIN – LOSS RECORD
The tie breakers are used in order to advance or seed ONE team at a time.

Each time a tie is broken to advance one team, leaving a tie between two or more teams, the
situation reverts to criterion #2.- Head-to-Head results

If still tied:

2. RESULTS OF HEAD-TO-HEAD COMPETITION
Example: Three teams are tied with identical records for the first place at the end of pool play.
Teams A, B and C played against each other once in pool play. Team A won all of its games Team
B and Team C during pool play. Result – Team A advances, which creates a two-way tie between
Team B and Team C. That tie then is broken by reverting to criterion #2.

If still tied:

3. FEWEST RUNS GIVEN UP
If the results of the head to-head match up(s) of the teams that are involved in the tie cannot break
the tie (because no team defeated each of the other teams in the tie each timed they played, or
because no team has defeated all of the other teams involved in the tie, or because the teams
involved in the tie did not play one another during pool play, then the tie is broken using criterion
#3. The remaining teams tie is broken by reverting back to criterion #2.

If still tied:

4. RUN DIFFERENTIAL WITH A MAXIMUM OF 10 PER GAME
In the event a tie is created by virtue of a forfeited game, and the tie cannot be broken by criterion
#2, the order of Criterions #3 and #4 will be reversed and applied to the tie. Since the number of
runs which might have been scored during the game may have affected the fewest runs allowed
standing (and the awarding of the forfeit gives the “winning team“ no additional runs given up),
this order will better adjust for that event.
