Threatening Weather and Lightning Policies

a. Threatening weather conditions and/or lightning will end the game or
practice session. Due to the lack of lightning safe, enclosed structures, the Baseball / Softball Fields will be cleared of all persons in lightning conditions. All players, spectators, coaches and managers are to move to an area of safety (i.e. house or a motor vehicle). Areas around the concession stands are not considered safe areas.

b. Games scheduled to start while lightning is sighted will be cancelled as a
rain out if the delay due to the activation exceeds thirty minutes past the
games posted starting time. Umpires will notify the coaches of this decision.

c. It is the umpire's decision only to resume play if conditions improve. He will make sure that it is safe in order to continue play.

d. No one will be allowed into the Complex or Park District field area while lightning has been sighted or is in the area. Dropping off players by parents
or guardians will not be permitted until the Lightning has cleared. For safety considerations, everyone shall remain in their cars while lightning is in the area.

e. Umpire's will do their best to play the game, but if conditions are poor
they will cancel that scheduled game for the safety of all participants.
