Local Rules, lol
 
From a Travel League I did for the first time this year:

"Both teams must keep a bound permanent book for the season. If either team does not present their scorebook at the beginning of the game, their opponent will be awarded two free throws and the ball to start the game. This "T" will be charged to the officials and not the head coach"

What if both teams don't have a bound permanent book? Do we give ourselves two techs? Throw ourselves out? :D

As ejected adults, do we have to sit on the cold bus? Are we suspended from the next game?

Note: Over the years (many years) I have worked a few middle school games where the scorebook started out as a blank piece of paper, once it was unlined paper, so maybe it's not such a bad rule, just poorly written.

Why not make this an administrative technical that doesn't get assessed to the coach or bench :confused:? But as they say over on the softball forum, <abbr title="local rules are made by fools">LRAMBF</abbr>.

Yesterday, I had a girls MS doubleheader in a league I hadn't worked before. Neither team had a bona fide scorebook. 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.
