Time Table for Field Closure Notice

  • 2:00 PM weekday games
  • 8:00 PM Friday for Saturday games
  • Some days will be a game time decision
Notes:
Assume all games are on unless you hear otherwise from your coach.

Please note that in some cases,  the notice above may indicate that playing will be a “game time” decision.

What is a game time decision?

Imagine the rain has stopped and the sun has come out,  or maybe your think it might rain later now what? Teams have the option to continue and attempt to prep the field for game play.  They may have to soak up some puddles with our infield sponges and sweep off some of the water with our large infield brooms. Keep in mind that this is a gamble because the final call is up to the umpire, they are the final word. Their determination regarding player safety will be a “game time decision”. Keep in mind that we always error on the side of safety.  Contact your coach for more information.

Little League does not play games on any of our fields. Their fields are controlled by the county and the high school. The Little League fields can be shut down while ours can be open. Also each of our four fields handles water differently, for example BCE may be closed and Quail Hollow may be open.

Keep in mind that the grass is the part of the field that gets damaged when you play on it when it’s soggy.

A slippery infield and wet bases are a safety factor. Always error on the side of caution. If you plan to run drills on a hard surface remember to tell your players to wear the proper shoe.

Keep in mind that games require coordination between two teams and an umpire crew. Practices are just your team and you can get creative and run drills on black top for example.
