Lightning Safety

Lightning, please remember that the baseball season is a prime time for thunder storms, so be aware of lightning. If you hear Thunder and/or see Lightning, immediately cease play and seek suitable shelter. Wait 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder or flash of lightning before leaving shelter. Half of all lightning deaths occur after the storm passes. Stay in a safe area until you are sure the threat has passed. If there is no suitable safe shelter available, games are to be considered cancelled. Alexander Park, Bernie Arbour Stadium, Dofasco Park, Mahoney Park, and Volunteer Field are the only parks considered to have suitable safe shelter so long as the facilities are open, available and provide adequate space for all participants for use.
