Oviedo Babe Ruth Baseball and Softball League Code of Ethics
(parts adopted from American Baseball Coaches Association)
First and foremost, Oviedo Babe Ruth (OBR) strives for sportsmanship, ethics, and integrity to the highest degree. Coaching ethics are of utmost importance. Proper sportsmanship and ethical conduct in coaching will continue to be one of OBR’s highest priority.
PREAMBLE: The next and following generations will be the stewards of our great game of baseball. More importantly, they will be the caretakers of our families, communities, and nation. The present and future well-being of our society will depend on men and women of high moral character who will demonstrate and live out the virtues of honesty, integrity, respect and personal responsibility. Recognizing that these and all other ethical values do not develop automatically in our players, OBR will make a deliberate and conscious effort to assist them in developing the values and ideals necessary for moral decision making and conduct. This stated goal is best achieved through the thousands of OBR coaches and members. The single most important variable in promoting ethical conduct on the baseball and softball field is the coach.
PURPOSE: The Code of Ethics has been written to protect and promote the best interests of the game of baseball and softball and the coaching profession.
