Herts Baseball Club has confirmed that, in accordance with its constitution and club regulations, it investigated complaints related to conduct during the Herts Hawks home Double-A League game with the Essex Archers played on 27 June 2021. A disciplinary panel considered the evidence and imposed a £60 fine on, Carlos Casal Sr, for misconduct and for bringing the club into disrepute. The fine was suspended for 24 months. Casal Sr would not be required to pay the £60 fine, however the fine will become payable in the event that he commits a disciplinary offence in the next 24 months.
The above disciplinary decision was appealed. The appeals panel considered the appeal and upheld and confirmed the findings of the original disciplinary panel. The appeal was therefore rejected.
The club reiterated that, over the years it has had very few disciplinary matters to deal with but, it is still important to increase awareness among its members about observing the club and BBF codes of conduct especially when emotions run high.
