Thunder and Lightning Policy

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.


Rules & Regulations

Concussions in Youth Athletes

The Texas law is found at Sections 38.151 through 38.160 of the Texas Code.  (Tex. Educ. Code Ann. §§ 38.151 through 38.160)[1].  These sections of the Texas law are applicable to interscholastic activity and the University Interscholastic League and requires that school districts: appoint concussion oversight teams to establish return-to-play protocols; require that students may not participate in an activity during a school year until their parent/guardian signs and returns a form acknowledging receipt of concussion information; and requires a student be immediately removed from the activity by a coach, a physician, a licensed health care provider or parent/guardian, if a concussion is suspected.  The student may not return to play until evaluated by a medical professional, and the student has completed return-to-play protocols, has written clearance from the medical provider and the parent has signed a consent form allowing them to return to play.  A coach may not authorize a student’s return to play.  Coaches are required to get concussion training once every two years.

[1]  Texas H.B. 961 amended §38.154 and §38.158 to provide that a school nurse may request to be a member of the school’s concussion oversight team and must undergo training every two years.  The amendments became effective in June 2019.

MOYSC Walk-Up Music Policy

Walk-Up and Pre-Game music can be fun for the team and provide a lot of energy for the game.  Below is MOYSC's policy about music at the complex


  • Volume should be at a level that does not distract other fields at the complex
  • Walk-Up music needs to be turned off once the player has entered the batter's box and must remain off until the play is dead.
  • Music needs to be at PG level in regards to language and content
