Inclement Weather Updates



In situations of rain we need to give our ball fields 24 to 48 hours to dry after the rain stopped (depending on the amount of rain). Water cannot be swept off the infield because it removes the clay off the infield thus damaging the field for future use. Your program must have a copy of the field permit on site at all times
