A personal check will only be accepted from the team’s manager whose name appears on the registration. Checks should be made out to Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS). Special arrangements need to be made to pay by check, since the office is not open to the public.

    RETURNED CHECK POLICY
    If any check is returned NSF, the team in question will forfeit all of its games from the point of notification from Rec & Ed, until a cash payment is made for the amount of the check plus an additional $50 league re-entry fee.

    LEAGUE RULES
    The Rec & Ed Adult Baseball Program will be governed by the Official Baseball Rules. However, Rec & Ed league rules will supersede the governing rules.
