Playing Or Not Playing?? How Do You Find Out??
Published: Monday, April 14, 2014
It is a good rule of thumb to get used to checking the SPAA Rain Out Information daily before proceeding to the fields. To do this simply look on the left side of this page at the "Location Delays" and be sure and check the date and time updated.
If you see:
"Delayed" next to your field, that means a determination has not been made yet, so check back later.
"Closed" next to your field means your game has been canceled and will be rescheduled. Keep an eye on your schedule for that game to reappear.
If your field is not listed that means you are playing and should be at the park at the time requested by your manager/coach.
A final determination is generally made by 4:00 PM on weeknights; 7:30 AM on Saturdays; and 10:30 AM on Sundays.
If you are a manager you will receive an email if your game is canceled. Be sure you have your email set to accept mail from firstname.lastname@example.org. Rescheduled games will be posted to your schedule once they are completed. Be sure and turn in any dates that you cannot field a team, BEFORE your game is rained out. Any dates I do not have marked out for you will be considered fair play.
If you are an umpire you will receive an email/text when the game is canceled. Those games will just be put back in the schedule and reassigned later.
If you are a parent scheduled for concession duty at an open park you need report for duty. One field playing at any location constitutes that park being open. If all fields at a location are closed, you do not need to show up. If weather conditions force the closing of your park, your concession duty for that day will be considered complete and you will not be rescheduled.
