JERRY’S RULES

  1. DO NOT COMPARE YOUR CHILD’S ABILITY TO ANOTHER CHILD’S ABILITY, BUT COMPARE YOUR CHILD’S OWN ABILITY FROM HIS FIRST PRACTICE TO HIS LAST GAME.
  2. YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO CHOOSE A SHIRT NUMBER FOR YOUR CHILD. YOUR CHILD WILL WEAR THE # THAT IS PRINTED ON HIS OR HER SHIRT. NO EXCEPTIONS.
  3. IT’S NEVER TO LATE TO CALL ME. MY PHONE GETS TURNED OFF AT NIGHT SO YOU CAN JUST LEAVE A MESSAGE. IF YOU CALL ME AND RESTRICTED SHOWS UP ON MY CELL PHONE, I WILL NOT ANSWER IT. I WILL NOT EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU YOU LEFT A VOICEMAIL FOR ME. SO THAT MEANS — DON’T CALL ME UNLESS YOU TAKE THE BLOCK OFF YOUR PHONE. I MUST SEE A PHONE NUMBER BEFORE I ANSWER MY PHONE UNLESS YOU ARE CALLING FROM THE FBI OR CIA AND OF COURSE IF YOUR NAME IS “BOND. JAMES BOND.”
  4. PUT YOUR CHILD’S NAME ON ALL THEIR EQUIPMENT AND HAT.
  5. FOR FIELD LOCATIONS AND DIRECTIONS CLICK HERE
  6. YOU MUST TELL ME AS FAR IN ADVANCE AS POSSIBLE IF YOU KNOW YOU ARE NOT GOING TO MAKE A GAME.
  7. EVERY PLAYER MUST BE IN FULL UNIFORM FOR EVERY GAME.
  8. IT IS NOT RAINING UNTIL I SAY IT’S RAINING!
  9. PARENTS ARE PARENTS SO LEAVE THE COACHING TO MYSELF AND MY STAFF. PARENTS DO NOT DISTURB ME OR THE GAME!!!
  10. ALWAYS BE ON TIME… JERRY TIME!
  11. THERE IS ONLY ONE QUESTION THAT SHOULD NOT BE ASKED, AND THAT IS “CAN MY SON PLAY A CERTAIN POSITION?”, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK ANYTHING BUT THAT AND ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILD TO DO THE SAME. THAT IS MY CHOICE, BASED ON SKILLS, SAFETY AND GAME SITUATIONS. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A HAPPY LOSING DUGOUT.
  12. YOUR CHILD MIGHT BE PLAYING THE OUTFIELD, NOT BECAUSE HE ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE INFIELD BUT BECAUSE I NEED HIM IN THE OUTFIELD. NOT EVERY CHILD CAN PLAY THE OUTFIELD. GOOD OUTFIELDERS WIN MOST OF THE GAMES.
  13. DO NOT BRING ANY OF YOUR OWN BASEBALLS TO A PRACTICE or A GAME
  14. DUGOUTS ARE DUG-OUTS. IT IS NOT A PLAY-PEN. EVERY CHILD IS EXPECTED TO BEHAVE IN THE DUG-OUT AND PAY ATTENTION TO THE GAME AND TO CHEER ON THEIR TEAM-MATE. GOOFING AROUND WILL RESULT IN YOUR CHILD SITTING NEXT TO YOU. MEANING HE WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE DUG-OUT!
  15. GAMES AND PRACTICES ARE NOT PLAY DATES. PLEASE ADVISE YOUR CHILD OF THIS. WE PRACTICE TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN GAMES.
  16. THERE IS A NO CRYING RULE FOR ANY MEMBER OF MY TEAMS. WITH ONLY THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTIONS:
    • IF YOU GET HURT YOU CAN CRY FOR 5 OR LESS SECONDS
    • IF YOU BLEED, YOU CAN CRY FOR 8 OR LESS SECONDS
  17. YOU HEARD IT FROM COACH JERRY HIMSELF “I AM FULL OF MYSELF”, SO NOW YOU DON’T HAVE TO SPREAD RUMORS AROUND.
  18. IF A PLAYER TELLS ME THAT HE IS HURT OR NOT FEELING GOOD, REGARDLESS IF IT’S THE TRUTH OR NOT — I WILL TAKE HIM OUT OF THE GAME COMPLETELY. THAT MEANS EVEN AT BAT. EVEN IF HE BATS LIKE BABE RUTH.
  19. YOU MUST CHECK CALENDAR AND YOUR E-MAIL DAILY.
  20. DON’T TELL ME THAT YOUR LITTLE DARLING BILLY MIGHT NOT BE AT NEXT GAME. TO ME THAT IS A MAYBE! NO MAYBE’S ON ANY OF MY TEAMS. I WILL NOT KEEP LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER WAITING FOR LITTLE BILLY TO SHOW UP FOR A GAME. I WILL MAKE THINGS SIMPLE. KEEP YOUR LITTLE DARLING BILLY AND YOUR MAYBE HOME WITH HIM FOR THE DAY.
  21. IF I TEXT YOU AND ASK FOR A IMMEDIATE RESPONSE… IT MEANS I NEED A QUICK RESPONSE. NOT AT YOUR LEISURE. THERE IS NO ONE AS BUSY AS I AM.
  22. I AM NOT A BABYSITTER OR A TAXI, THAT’S YOUR JOB.
I DO NOT CARE IF WE WIN OR LOSE A GAME ! WHAT MATTERS MOST IS THAT YOUR CHILD GIVES 100% TO THE GAME AND TO HIS TEAM. IF HE GIVES 100% , REGARDLESS OF HIS TALENT HE WILL BE A WINNER, NOT JUST IN GAMES BUT IN LIFE ALSO.
