Rule 3.11

Rule 3.11
Between games of a doubleheader, or whenever a game is suspended because of the unfitness of the playing field, the umpire-in-chief shall have control of ground-keepers and assistants for the purpose of making the playing field fit for play.

PENALTY: For violation, the umpire-in-chief may forfeit the game to the visiting team.

During a Class A Minor League game in 2003, groundskeeper Bill Butler of Lakeland, N.J., was ejected for interfering with the umpire crew's discussion concerning inclement weather.
