WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY – READ BEFORE SIGNING
In consideration of being allowed to participate in any way for the Men’s Senior Baseball League, Inc / Men’s Adult Baseball League, Inc /
Indiana Adult Baseball (MSBL/MABL/IBL), its related events and activities, I, , the
undersigned, acknowledge, appreciate, and agree that:
1. The risk of injury from the activities involved in this program is significant, including the potential for permanent paralysis and death, and while particular skills, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury does exist; and,
2. I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, both known and unknown, EVEN IF ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES or others, and assume full responsibility for my participation; and,
3. I willingly agree to comply with the stated and customary terms and conditions for participation. If, however, I observe any unusual significant hazard during my presence or participation, I will remove myself from participation and bring such to the attention of MSBL/MABL/IBL immediately; and,
4. Special Covid 19 Notice and Warning. The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. The MSBL/MABL/IBL has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, MSBL/MABL/IBL cannot guarantee that you will not become infected with COVID-19. Participating in the league will increase your exposure and risk of contracting COVID-19. The risk of serious illness or death is particularly great in those age 60 and over or who have underlying health conditions and should be undertaken by them only if they have consulted with their physicians. By signing this, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by participating and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by participating may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, MSBL/MABL/IBL employees, volunteers, and participants. I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself or my family (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my family may experience or incur in connection with my participation (“Claims”). I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless MSBL/MABL/IBL, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of MSBL/MABL/IBL, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any MSBL/MABL/IBL program.
5. I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, HEREBY RELEASE, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD HARMLESS MSBL/MABL/IBL, their officers, officials, agents and/or employees, other participants, sponsoring agencies, sponsors, advertisers, and, if applicable, owners and lessors of premises used for the activity ("Releasees"), WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL INJURY, DISABILITY, DEATH, or loss or damage to person or property associated with my presence or participation, WHETHER ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
I HAVE READ THIS RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS, UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS BY SIGNING IT, AND SIGN IT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY WITHOUT ANY INDUCEMENT.
