Frisco RoughRiders Fan Behavior Policy
The Frisco RoughRiders are committed to creating a family-friendly and welcoming environment at the ballpark for all guests. As part of that commitment, we have adopted this written policy addressing fan behavior. The policy includes a Fan Code of Conduct, which is fan-facing and describes how fans are expected to behave.
All Frisco RoughRiders staff, including game-day staff, must receive a copy of this policy before working any games. In addition, all staff must receive annual training on this policy, the substance of the Fan Code of Conduct, and how to respond to prohibited fan behavior. All training will be documented.
A copy of the Fan Code of Conduct can be found at any entrance gate to the ballpark, at any guest services booth, on ridersbaseball.com, and in the official game program.
Fans will be notified before and during the game through public service announcements (“PSAs”) on the main video board that summarizes the Fan Code of Conduct, the penalties for violation, and how to report prohibited behavior.
Reporting An Incident
Any game-day staff member who witnesses or receives a report of prohibited fan behavior by a fan must report the incident to a Club security supervisor. This can be done by contacting your immediate supervisor, notifying a nearby security staff member, or by contacting Scott Burchett, at [email protected].
Use of derogatory language by a fan toward a player, umpire, Club staff, or their family members must be documented by the Club and reported to the Club’s General Manager and to the Commissioner’s Office via email to [email protected]. Clubs must seek to collect the name and identifying information of the fan and must include in their report a description of how the Club addressed the incident and any planned discipline.
Fan Code of Conduct
In order to provide a welcoming experience for all, the Frisco RoughRiders have implemented a Fan Code of Conduct. Out of respect for fellow guests, players, coaches, and ballpark staff, all guests are prohibited from:
