The Hockomock President and Officers Hockomock Summer League Executive Board of Directors will be responsible for the Hockomock Summer League's financial status, record keeping, scheduling, enforcement and all other related matters concerning the operation of the Hockomock Summer League. The Hockomock Summer League encourages families to attend baseball games during the entire season. Spectators can play a very important role in the game by encouraging the players and acknowledging their efforts and accomplishments on the field. Unfortunately, in many youth leagues, there have been some instances of negative spectator behavior, which has detracted from the game and set a bad example for the young people participating in the program. To help ensure a positive atmosphere, the Hockomock Summer League has instructed the umpires who officiate the baseball games to act firmly and immediately to end negative spectator behavior. If necessary, managers and coaches are expected to assist the umpires in carrying out this responsibility. Also, all participants to include players, parents and coaches have agreed to abide by the Hockomock Summer League Code of Conduct.
