One of my responsibilities with my HS association is to manage an "incident report" process. I received the following report recently from a HS game and wanted to ask for opinions:

(team name deleted) had a player (in a team jersey
but recreational shorts) with a hard cast on her hand in the dug-out in a pair of thong sandles. She was keeping the book and was an injured player. I pointed this out to (partner) as a safety matter (bare feet) and a possible liability for us if she were to be injured. (partner) talked with the coach and the coach chose to keep the girl in the the dug-out. How far do we take something like this?


My opinion is that this falls in the "looking for boogers" category. Personally, I would not address this unless the player attempted to enter the game or came onto the field to coach at a base. The rulebook is not clear in addressing this particular situation. I think that you could infer going either way and justify it based on the book.

Let's hear what the rest of you have to say....

For me, this says it all.

I don't believe the footwear of assistant coaches is within my jurisdiction, and as long as this player stayed in the dugout, she's an assistant coach as far as I'm concerned.
