**The NCBA absolutely encourages social media interaction between teams, players & fans. Please keep in mind there is a distinct difference between friendly banter & inappropriate behavior such as talking trash or making threats towards other teams/players. When that line is crossed, it not only makes that player/team look bad, it makes the NCBA as a whole look bad. The NCBA, along with each & every team past & present, has worked way too hard to create the opportunity & experience this league offers. Inappropriate behavior like this will not be tolerated within any Division of the NCBA.
