NBI Code of Conduct Towards Umpires

Please click the link below for the Neenah Baseball Code of Conduct Towards Our Umpires.

Everyone should be aware that the umpires are young and learning the job themselves.  Even though they have guidance and some training they need to learn through experience. They will make mistakes just like the players do.  These games are not being played for the right to go to the State Tournament or NCAA World Series. Let’s make these GAMES enjoyable for everyone involved.
