Why not make this an administrative technical that doesn't get assessed to the coach or bench ? But as they say over on the softball forum, LRAMBF.

Instead, each coach submitted a sheet of paper in landscape format with his or her team's information and necessary score-keeping items. After the game ended, the coaches took back their respective sheet of paper.
