Play may resume if lightning has not been seen for 30 minutes, thunder has not been heard for 30 minutes, and the Little League Weather Bug App (Spark) does NOT show lightning within a 10 mile radius within the last 30 minutes.  Remember, If you hear it, clear it!"
 
We will do our best to update the website, the weather hotline, and communicate to commissioners and coaches, but we ask everyone to monitor for the safety our players and families.
