Discussion: Code of Ethics @ Mesquite SSUSA Spring World Championships

I truly beleive this issue lies directly with the "Pitcher #13" and the manager of the team for not pulling him to "cool" him off, not with the balance of the team. The team members from extreme that I chatted with during the game did not have the same issues as the Pitcher #13, they just wanted to play softball.
The other under lying issue was that the umpires stopped the game and told our team manager not to say anything but "positive" or "incouraging" comments. The issue continued without any repercusions or expulsion to the offending "winning" player.

The Team was "Rocky Mtn. Extreme (NM). The player was the "Pitcher". I have since found out that he continued his "Bad" behavior into the finals and was ejected from the tournament.

Discussion: Code of Ethics @ Mesquite SSUSA Spring World Championships

We had a good time overall.... except when we met up with a certain team in the semi-finals. They had a couple of players who were unable to abide by the CODE of ETHICS that we all are "EXPECTED" to abide by.
Senior Softball-USA Senior Softball World Championships
As a participant in a Senior Softball-USA / Senior
Softball World Championships tournament, including
Qualifiers and International Tours, I agree to conduct
myself as a gentleman or lady both on and off the
field, and that when playing I will:
Article 1: Abide by the current “Official Senior Softball
Guide and Playing Rules” to the best of my ability.
Article 2: Accept the decision of the umpires and my
team manager in good sportsmanship.
Article 3: Neither taunt nor degrade my opponent.
Article 4: Avoid bodily contact that may cause injury
to others or myself.
Article 5: Never direct abusive or profane language at
officials or opponents.
Article 6: Exercise control over my family members
and friends to the extent of Articles 3 and 5 above.
Article 7: Not commit any act that could be
considered unsportsmanlike conduct.
>> One player in particulare "BROKE" all but 2 codes in one game and had the umpires so bulley'd he was allowed to remain in the game and the tournament. The shame of it all they were "WINNING" at the time. Later in the finals, this player was duely "EJECTED" as he continued to break all the Code of Ethic'a Articles. I personally have decided "NOT" to play in any ternaments against this team. Imagine had they been loosing the game what might had happened. NOT GOING TO CHANCE IT, it is only a game.
