I further acknowledge that the “ABL” is primarily administered by volunteers rather than paid professionals.

 

In consideration of accepting the registration and permitting my child’s participation in this baseball program for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns and next of kin, I hereby release, discharge and agree to hold harmless the ABL, its employees, volunteers, officials, sponsors and other representatives and any and all owners, lessors, lessees or other persons or entities allowing, permitting or authorizing the use of facilities by the ABL and the agents, employees, officers and directors of said persons or entities from any and all claims, demands, costs, expenses and compensation arising out of or  in any way related to any injury or other damage that may result to me or member of my family or my household or individuals I invite for whom I am otherwise responsible while participating in or present at any ABL sponsored event, including any physical or other injury caused by the negligence of any person or entity described above.

All players, fans and I release, discharge and agree not to take legal action against the ABL, Herman Bomback or owner on which baseball is/was practiced or played by my son/daughter.  I further agree that I shall hold harmless and fully indemnify the ABL, it’s officers, employees, or any person connected with the team, its agents, coaches or managers.  I understand that no insurance is provided by the ABL.  All teams are responsible for providing their own insurance policy covering medical and/or liability.  This information supersedes previous insurance information.
