Fan enthusiasm and support are a great part of baseball and active cheering is encouraged. The American Legion Baseball program is dedicated to providing a safe and positive environment for both players and fans.
You are requested to be considerate at all times of the feelings of the players and sensitivities of those fans seated around you. We hope this request is all that is necessary.

The American Legion World Series will enforce this request in the following manner for ticket holders as well as ALWS volunteers and staff.

The use of artificial noisemakers will not be permitted during an American Legion Baseball game. Persons using any artificial noisemakers will be asked to stop. A second violation will result in removal of the violators from the ballpark.

Persons entering the playing field or throwing or attempting to throw objects on the field also will be subjected to immediate ejection and criminal prosecution.

Persons using obscene or abusive language or engaging in any other antisocial conduct offensive to those around them will be asked to cease this conduct. If the offensive conduct persists, those involved will be subject to ejection from the premises.

Possession and/or concealing a firearm or other deadly weapon while on school grounds or within Keeter Stadium will result in ejection from the premises and possible criminal prosecution.

Possession or use of illegal drugs or alcohol will result in ejection from the premises and possible criminal prosecution.

Smoking as well as use of any tobacco or ‘vaping’ product are not permitted in Keeter Stadium or anywhere else on school premises.

Failure to follow the instructions of Keeter Stadium personnel will result in ejection from the premises.

The American Legion World Series Executive Board or their designee reserves the right to deem behavior or actions to be in violation of these rules and may take corrective action as deemed appropriate. Such actions may include: a warning; ejection from the property; or, in some cases, arrest. Violations by ticket holders or their guests may result in the loss of ticket privileges.

Your cooperation is appreciated. Enjoy the game!
