Bat Protest Procedure
Teams wishing to protest the use of an illegal bat must notify the umpire before the next batter enters the batter's box. Once the first pitch to the next batter has been thrown, the protest will be considered invalid.
Result of Successful Protest
First Infraction: A successful protest will result in a warning of the player committing the first infraction and the manager of the infracting team. The protesting team can then choose to accept an automatic out or the result of the play.
Second Infraction: Upon a second infrasction within the same game, the manager is ejected from the game and the player is called out and loses next turn at bat which results in an automatic out.
Non-Team Related Occurrences
Players and Managers participating in NPGL Baseball, found to have committed multiple infractions will have their participation reviewed by the operating staff and may face expulsion from the league.
