From the District 22-4A Executive Committee

The UIL District 22-4A Executive Committee (DEC) received information of a alleged Bridge City ineligible baseball player. Upon investigation, the DEC determined that UIL Baseball Policy, Section 1220: b2 was broken. The policy states, “…no team or student shall compete in more than three invitational tournaments, plus 17 baseball games in a season, including all games prior to the first playoff game. This shall include non-district and district games…”

In accordance with Section 29: b3 of the UIL Constitution and Contest Rules, the DEC administered the minimum penalty for an ineligible player. “A DEC shall forfeit the contest won by the individual or school, as a minimum penalty, if it finds that an individual contestant was not eligible to participate in the contest.”

The DEC requires the forfeiture of three varsity and two junior varsity games from Bridge City ISD Baseball for the unintended use of an ineligible player.
