Comments on the 2013 Football Rules Changes

SOLID-COLORED TOWELS NOW LEGAL (1-5-3a(5)a): The committee modified the rule regarding the authorized wearing of a moisture-absorbing towel. Towels that are one solid color may now be worn, as long as they are not the color of the football or penalty flag. The towel cannot have no more than one visible manufacturer’s logo/trademark, which cannot exceed 2 ¼ square inches in any dimension. Towels worn by teammates must be the same color. Previously, the towel could only be white and unmarked.

Special Acknowledgement!

Two of our own, Cecil Gray and Doug Roe, have both been selected to umpire the Elite Eight at the Cooperstown NY Invitational Youth Baseball Tournament.

Doug worked behind the plate on Wednesday, June 12th in the first no hitter this year. He has also been selected as the Crew Chief.

Congratulations guys!
