As a way to ensure a team does not have to forfeit a game, we have instituted a call-up process for competitive divisions. If prior to game time, you know you will not have enough players, you will need to contact Buddy Purvis (
You should request the needed player/players (maximum of 2) please email or text Buddy as soon as you are aware of the shortage.
Call up Guidelines:
Player selection is completely random. Only the Player Agent will know who is next on the list
Give at least 3 hours’ notice to give ample time to contact players
Asking a player on your own while down at the field is not permitted. If you arrive at your game and don't have enough, text buddy as soon as possible.
Players called up will be from another minors team. If we can't get a minors player, we may call up a few select 10-year-olds to fill in.
Maximum call up players per game is 2.
A manager will be given two challenges per game. If there is a play that you feel needs help to determine the correct call. A manager only will have to bring his challenge to the ASA umpire and he will talk it over with the youth umpire and determine the right call. Coaches are not allowed to appeal or demonstrate any action that would influence a call. If a coach is caught appealing a call or influencing a call he/she will be ejected for the remainder of that game and will also not be available to coach the following game.
