ADULT GAME COORDINATOR DUTIES
(Rule 9.03d from the Green Book)
Rule 9.03 (d): If no adult umpire is available for a game, and non-adult umpires are used
exclusively for that game, the local Little League must assign an adult as Game Coordinator, or the
game cannot be played. The Game Coordinator must not be a manager or coach of either team in the
game, and cannot be assigned as Game Coordinator for more than one game at a time.
The Game Coordinator duties shall be:
(1) To be included in the pre-game meeting as noted in Rule 4.01.
(2) To remain at the game at all times, including between half-innings, in a position to see all
actions on the field and in close proximity to the field (not in any enclosure). If, for some
reason, the Game Coordinator is not present or is unable to perform his/her duties for any reason,
the game must be suspended until the Game Coordinator returns, or until a new adult Game
Coordinator is present and assumes the duties of Game Coordinator for the remainder of the game.
(3) To oversee the conduct of all players, managers, coaches and umpires in the game.
(4) To have the authority to disqualify any player, coach, manager or substitute for objecting to
the decisions of an umpire, for unsportsmanlike conduct or language, or for any reasons enumerated
in these Playing Rules, and to eject such disqualified person from the playing field. If the Game
Coordinator disqualifies a player while a play is in progress, the disqualification shall not take
effect until no further action is possible in that play.
(5) To have the sole ability to judge as to whether and when play shall be suspended during a game
because of inclement weather conditions or the unfit condition of the playing field; as to whether
and when play shall be resumed after such suspension; and as to whether and when a game shall be
terminated after such suspension. Said Game Coordinator shall not call the game until at least
thirty minutes after play as suspended.
The Game Coordinator may continue suspension as long as there is any chance to resume play. (This
A.R – The Game Coordinator should not interrupt or stop a game until all play and action ends. At
that time, the
Game Coordinator can alert the plate umpire to stop the game, and at that time enforce any part of
