Default New Rule Change for 2009 Re: Dugouts

Next year only rostered players and rostered managers/coaches will be allowed in the dugout area. No bat kids, spouses, friends, etc. will be allowed.

This rule will probably include all associations. It will definitely be instituted by USSSA and in particular Long Island. This is due to litigation(Not on Long Island) involving a ball boy running out on the field and getting hit by an on deck batter swinging.

Who exactly is instituting this rule? Is it a municipality, an association, or a league?

on Long Island, any game involving a Utrip umpire. Since this was a result of Rick going to the Winter Meetings, it could be Utrip wide. Brookhaven Town will be. He's is going to get clarification from Brookhaven Town legal as to the time between games.

Since they always go after the biggest pockets, you/Riverhead may want to look at this.

I've never said any such thing. I wasn't invited to it this year, knew nothing about it, so there was no way I could go.
