The WOBA Bulls Teams are ‘tournament only’ teams that fall under the OBA Rule 2.04 (aa).  Players who attend try outs and/or are selected and rostered to any WOBA Bulls team must attain the following criteria to be eligible to play:

i.     Be a current WOBA registered player in their Home Association during the Bulls playing season

ii.    Participate and play with a Local Association team for league play.

iii.   Be OBA rostered to a WOBA league team at the same series.

iv.   Honour their commitments to their Local Association first if there is a conflict with the Bulls team game schedule.

The WOBA Bulls teams shall follow the guidelines of:

 v.   Provide tryout opportunities, making every effort for these opportunities both in the North and in the South where possible.

vi.   It is only a tournament team and NOT a team that is eligible for OBA play-offs.

vii.  The WOBA Registrar must review and approve the team roster prior to submitting it directly to the office manager of Baseball Ontario.

viii.  A team may use eligible call up players up to a maximum of two (2) players.  Eligibility of a call up player is based on the player criteria as set out above.

x.    The WOBA Registrar must be informed of and approve all call up players.  Such approval is to be signified by either the Registrar submitting the changes to the office manager of Baseball Ontario or confirming them.  Failure to inform the Registrar of call up players will result in the suspension of the team coaches.

x.      May not participate at tournaments that would contravene the SOBA-OBA agreement.

xi.     A Bulls team may not book more than one tournament for each of the months June, July and August so that it minimizes the opportunity for conflict with local OBA teams and their preparations for championship weekend.  May and September are unlimited.
