All ejections will be reviewed by the executive committee, after the first game suspension, provided there is no conflict of interest. Also, the BOD may add additional penalties if needed.
D. The Arnold Fowler Award was discussed, and a form will be posted on the web-site to be completed by any member of the league. Nominations will be accepted and placed on a ballot to be voted on by the players over the next few weeks. The award is NOT a popularity contest, but based on the accomplishments of the person with regard to: sportsmanship, integrity, dedication and teamwork. John Humeston, Bob Werner, Mike Parson, Andy Tubbs & Ray DeLuca will serve as the vetting committee for nominations and acquire pictures of said nominees.
