Baseball Policies

PARTICIPATION IN SCHOOL ACTIVITIES IS DEPENDENT ON YOUR ELGIBILITY.  WE WILL FOLLOW THE PINE ISLAND SCHOOL ELGIBILITY GUIDELINES AS NOTED IN THE EXTRA-CURRICULAR HANDBOOK.

DENTENTIONS DURING THE BASEBALL SEASON
1st Detention - Miss one game
2nd Detention - Miss two games
3rd Detention - Miss the remaining games on the schedule *  If the player is an underclassman, they may continue to practice with the team.

MISSING A GAME OR PRACTICE DUE TO AN UNEXCUSED ABSENCE
1st Unexcused Absence - Miss one game
2nd Unexcused Absence - Miss two games
3rd Unexcused Absence - Miss the remaining games on the schedule * If the player is an underclassman, they may continue to practice with the team.

GAMES
All players are expected to attend all games on the team schedule.  However, players will be excused for other school activities, illness, injuries, personal problems, or family commitments.  Parents should send a note or e-mail a coach about possible conflicts where the player will be gone.

PRACTICES
On school days, each practice will be begin at 3:30 pm.  When school is not in session, the starting time for those non-school day practices will be posted on the previous practice schedule.  If a player has a conflict and must miss a practice, they should personally contact the coach.  Any player showing up late for practice without a valid excuse, will have extra conditioning.

POOR SPORTSMANSHIP
The Pine Island Baseball Program is proud of their tradition of sportsmanship.  Ifa player is eliminated from a game due to poor sportsmanship, they will have to sit out the next game (MSHSL Ruling).  The coaching staff and captains for that season will determine if additional suspensions will occur if the action is flagrant.
