Financial Responsibilities - Other than the registration fees, teams are responsible for purchasing their own equipment and uniforms. Teams must purchase game balls through the league. Cost will be between $42 - $44 per dozen and each team will be pre-ordered two dozen balls. However, if you were a Puritas team and did not play during the 2020 season due to virus and you still have your game balls from last year, you will not have to buy new ones. Each team is also responsible for paying the umpire fees each game. Two umpires are required for all games in all divisions. Umpire fees at Maplewood will be $50 for each umpire. Each team pays one umpire. Game ball usage will depend on the Covid safety rules at the time. Fees at other sites vary.
