It saddens me to announce the passing of Dean Broadwater. Dean was a long-time member of the NCCGSL umpire family for well over a decade. He had many good friends throughout the league, as well as in several counties where he umpired rec, travel and high school softball and baseball. He will be missed on the ballfield, but remembered in our hearts as a man who loved the game and the community surrounding it.

 

Memorial for Dean Broadwater will be held on Sunday, 30 September from 1:00 to 6:00 at Downs Park at the Brightwater Pavilion. The family is requesting that guests bring a covered dish/dessert/etc. (Pot Luck format) 

 

 

 

 

 

 




 

THUNDER & LIGHTNING

The NCCGSL will observe the Anne Arundel County Recreation & Parks Thunder & Lightning Policy
All activities must cease upon the first sound of thunder or sight of lightning.
All participants and spectators must abandon the fields and dugouts.
Go to your vehicles.

Play may be resumed 30 minutes after the thunder and lightning has stopped.


Warning to Managers, Coaches & Umpires:

Failure to observe this policy shall result in suspension from the NCCGSL for the remainder of season.


The game may not resume until the skies are lightning-free for 30 minutes from the time of the last sighting.  
It is best to postpone the game if lightning continues and play is stopped for 40 minutes or more.

The game resumes from the point at which it was postponed.  Delay time is not deducted from your two hour time limit.

>>>  A host organization's lightning policy that exceeds these minimums supersedes the NCCGSL guidelines.  <<<
 


Inclement Weather Policy

It is the home team’s responsibility to inform the opposing manager and umpire of postponement.
Contact should be made BY TELEPHONE.
Some organizations have hotlines and websites that they use for notification.
It is best to just give the opponent and umpire a courtesy call.
If you have not heard from your opponent by one hour before scheduled game time,
assume the game is “on as scheduled” and GO TO THE FIELD!
