Thunder/Lightning Policy Reminder

By Jeremy Covert, 02/28/18, 9:00AM CST




If thunder or lightning occurs near a game or practice at any time, the game will stop immediately and all players will be moved to a safe location. The game will not be resumed until 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder is heard, or the last bolt of lightning is seen. The umpire and/or league official will have sole discretion in determining the 30-minute period, and he may not be overruled by the managers of the teams playing the game. If the game cannot be resumed, it will be considered a suspended game and will be resumed at a later time.


If you feel your child is in danger at any time, please remove him/her from the activity and email the commissioner about your safety concern.  


For reference see our rules.
