Due to the late afternoon storms that are passing through there is standing water on all fields as well as in cages, with frequent thunder and lightning. For reference, our severe weather policy is as follows:
All activities will be halted and the Oak Hill Youth Sports Association Complex will be closed for at least 30 minutes when there is (1) a thunderstorm with claps of thunder, (2) a cloud-to-ground lightning bolt is observed, or (3) if there is a tornado warning in the vicinity of the facility.
Players, coaches and spectators will be advised to seek shelter in a safe, fully enclosed building or a vehicle. At no time should players remain in the dugouts during this 30 minute period. The game will not be resumed until a full 30 minutes after (1) the last clap of thunder is heard, (2) the last bolt of lightning is seen, or (3) the tornado warning has been lifted. Participants will be signaled if/when it is determined to be safe to re-enter the Complex.
If field conditions allow, activities may resume at that time. The umpire on each field will have sole discretion in determining the 30-minute period for each game, and he may not be overruled by the managers of the teams playing the game. A Board Member and/or Commissioner on site may be consulted and shall have authority to suspend or resume all games on all fields.
If the game cannot be resumed, it will be considered a suspended game and will be resumed at a later time.
