Who decides when it’s safe to play.

Please check the rainout line prior to your game, our assigners will update it as soon as any decisions have been made.

Slow Pitch Leagues

The city parks will decide prior to game time if the fields will be open or closed.  The umpire has the responsibility to determine if the field conditions are safe before and during the game, and can end the game when they feel it is no longer safe to play.  Once a field is deemed unplayable all remaining games on that field are also cancelled.

 

School Games

The home team coach determines if the field conditions are safe before the game starts. Once the game begins that responsibility shifts to the plate umpire. If you re playing a double header, the umpires determine if it is safe to start the second game.

 

College Games

The specified on site administrator determines if the field conditions are safe prior to the start of the game. Once the game begins that responsibility shifts to the plate umpire. If playing a double header, the plate umpire from the first game determines if the field is playable prior to the start of the second game.

 

JO Games

When working tournament games the tournament director determines field conditions to start the tournament and throughout the day. The umpires on individual fields decide during games if their fields are playable.

 

Please make your decisions to continue playing for the safety of the players. If you do call a game please let the assigners know as soon as you can.
