The progress of a game will not be disrupted by a spectator's actions. Game umpires have the authority to
eject fans from the ball park, if necessary, with the assistance of the Yorktown Police Department.
Negative cheering or negative chatter directed towards game participants is not allowed. This includes but is
not limited to, "Hey Batter Batter," counting strikes, etc. Positive cheering for your own team is encouraged.
