We will continue to use the BAT TESTER and provide tamper proof decal stickers at this event. Each bat will need to be tested prior to use. Bats that do not have a tamper proof decal sticker will not be allowed in the game. Players should not try to take the tamper proof decal sticker off because any bat with a sticker that looks like it’s been tampered with will not be allowed in play.

In order to start the games on time please arrive at least 45 minutes prior to game time so we can test your bat and provide passing bats with a tamper proof decal sticker for umpires to check on the field.

SCIFL is a non-profit organization that only receives funds from the entry fee teams pay to cover the expenses of running a tournament. Once a team commits to the tournament the expenses are calculated and the field rentals are paid in advance. If a team has committed and then decides to drop out of the tournament, for any reason, they will be subject to the entry fee to cover expenses. The fees will need to be paid prior to any future SCIFL and NAFA tournaments to avoid the team’s roster (players) from suspension. SCIFL will take the team’s roster from the last tournament the team played and will place it on a suspension list if the cancellation fee is not paid. This means players from that team will not be able to play in any SCIFL and NAFA tournaments until the cancellation fee is paid, so please make sure when you commit you are committed to playing in the tournament.


The City of Santa Fe Springs “Department of Community Services Parks & Recreation Services Division Athletic Fields – Rental Policy” states “NO ALCOHOL BEVERAGES ALLOWED ON PREMISES; INCLUDING THE PARKING LOT! If a team or spectator is in violation of this policy, the organization may have further use of a City facility suspended. This includes any individual coming onto the premises already intoxicated” so please make sure this policy is adhered to avoid SCIFL from losing its field permit.

If a tournament in progress is stopped for violating the policy, no refunds will be provided.

Jesse Ortiz
SCIFL President
