Knothole Baseball and Softball - Rainout Policy

 

Weather and bad field conditions can be very frustrating and, in some cases, difficult to call.  Please keep in mind the safety of the kids, parents and coaches.  In the event of inclement weather, the “Rainout Policy” is listed below. 

 

Rainout Policy:

It is the "Home" team coach's responsibility to determine if a field is playable or not.  This has changed from last year when the league would determine the playing status for weekends.  What we found out is our coaches would rather make that call.  The following is the protocol for "Weekend" and "Weekday" games.  With that said, on occasion, weekend only, the league may step in and cancel games due to weather.  

 

Protocol:

  • If you decide to cancel, please text our Director of Umpires at (513) 266-0182 and Jeff Wiles at (513) 259-8020 immediately (this does not apply to T-Ball, Coach Pitch and D-Jr).  This will allow us to contact the umpire assigned to your game.  Please do not call, only text!
  • When texting; text your field location, start time and team name.
  • Contact me via email at   or text at 513-259-8020, so I can update the website.
  • Try to reschedule the make-up game with the other coach immediately.
  • Once a make-up date has been agreed upon please email me and I will update the website.

Please consider the following when making the decision to play:

  • The safety of the players.  Wet conditions can cause injuries.  Cold conditions can take the fun away from the game.
  • Please do not damage the field by playing when the field is too wet.
  • Absolutely, no digging trenches on any fields!  This causes long term damage.
  • Please use only a quality mixture if you are going to use a field drying agent (no “Kitty Litter”!).  There’s a product called “Pro’s Choice - Rapid Dry”.  You can pick it up at “Teams All Sports” in West Chester, Ohio. 
  • If you cancel; please try to notify the opposing team's coach no later than  2 hours before a game so they can get a message out to their parents (if possible, even earlier for teams traveling more than 30 minutes).
  • Please notify me so I can update the website.
