Then each team e-mails a clear picture of their lineup to email@example.com
You'll have to get on people at first to do this before they get into the habit. In coed, our lineups are due within 24 hours. If they are not submitted by then, they are getting an e-mail or text from me.
I actually upload the pictures to Facebook (I create a photo album for that day). We use a Facebook group, not a page (though either one will work). I like using a group more because people get notifications anytime there's a post, which is useful for rainouts and announcements.
As you can see, we also post the games played, as well. It's up to the opposing teams to check up on their lineups and the opposing team's lineup. If they don't, that's on them. If I don't receive a lineup, I do give them the benefit of the doubt and I contact them (e-mail problems, etc.) BTW< sometimes if you sent more than one picture, the file size is really large and some e-mail accounts cannot handle it (which I've seen before).
The first couple of weeks, I give the teams a little leeway if they don't put a last initial down (if they have more than one person of the same name) or if they use a nickname.
This system came in VERY handy during last year's coed playoffs (I've told Steve the story - no use getting into it).
