USA Baseball: Request for Sanction

QUESTION: What is a sanction and who must have one?

ANSWER: A sanction from USA Baseball is required whenever an amateur athlete or team chooses to play baseball outside the country or when an international team is being hosted in the United States.  This sanction - or permission - is required as stated in the Amateur Sports Act of 1978 and is designed for the protection of the rights and status of amateur athletes who seek international experience.  USA Baseball sanctions only amateur players.  To protect the amateur eligibility of a team, school or player, check with USA Baseball prior to taking a group to another country, hosting an international team, or allowing an amateur player to participate with or against players from other nations

DIRECTIONS:  Please read the following information which describes the procedures for acquiring a sanction from USA Baseball, the national governing body for amateur baseball in the United States.  To acquire an official sanction, submit the Application for Sanction along with the appropriate fee to USA Baseball.
