An incident occurred this week where a non-coach from a Millennium Sunday League team directly contacted an umpire assigner to try to influence the decision on which umpire to send to a specific game.
That practice is strictly prohibited as it is viewed as an attempt to potentially influence the outcome of a game by non-traditional means.
As a result, the player who made contact with the assigner is suspended for the remainder of the regular season (four games) and is on probation through the playoffs. In addition, the coach of the team is also on probation beginning this Sunday, June 16th through the playoffs.
And finally, the team's roster is frozen so that no additional players who have not played for the team this season can be added in the final two weeks to make up for the loss of the suspended player.
No player or coach should ever try to contact the umpire assigner to make any request regarding the officiating of a game.
If any team has a problem with an umpire they are to contact the league commissioner and/or the district commissioner to file their complaint and let league/district protocol determine if any future changes involving the team and umpire should be considered.
Below is the frozen roster of the team in question.
