Blatant league-wide disregard of this rule has become apparent. An old and very wise saying goes like this, "You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone". If players continue to place alcohol on or near the player's bench, umpires will be instructed to issue game ejections without warning. As is the case with player ejections, a mandatory 1 game suspension will follow.The consumption of alcohol while playing, or on the players bench, is strictly prohibited. Umpires will warn, then eject.
League managers and members are urged to inform those in violation to pay heed if they want to keep things 'status quo'.
