ALL Field Closure Protocol

There are two sets of fields that Alameda Little League uses, Little League Fields and ARPD fields. The Little League Fields of Anderson (formerly Rittler), Kees (formerly Lippert), Majors, and Minor and are under Alameda Little League control. The ARPD fields of Bayport, Littlejohn, Leydecker, Tillman, etc are managed by Alameda Recreation and Parks are under ARPD control. We have to call this out because ALL fields may be open while ARPD fields may be closed.

Little League Fields : The league controls whether or not the fields are open. Check the Little League website the day of an event (practice or games) to see if your team's field is open. We will do our best to update the status by 2:00pm. If you have a game or practice scheduled and there is no information on this website with respect to closure assume that the practice or game will go on as scheduled and arrive at the scheduled time.

If there are adverse weather conditions during the day any decision to suspend a game is a game-time decision and will not be reported on this website. Please plan on all games starting on-time and arriving at the time your team's manager has specified. 

ARPD Fields: Alameda Recreation and Parks Department manage the ARPD Fields. They have full control deciding that a field is either open or closed.The ARPD maintains a weather hotline Monday through Friday at 510-747-7540. The hotline is updated by 2:00pm. If a field has a "Field Closed" sign the field is closed, please respect it and do not use the field. It is very easy to damage a wet field. Play fields in Alameda are a scarce resource and must be treated as such.
